Trade war and depression — Michael Roberts Blog

Today is a threshold date for the global economy. Trump’s US administration starts imposing trade tariffs on $34bn of imports from China. And Beijing is set to target an equal amount in retaliation. Add that to the pile of tariffs and counter-tariffs growing across the Atlantic and North America, and the value of trade covered by […]

Desigualdad creciente en todo el mundo

There is a book sweeping the popular media at the moment. It’s called Factfulness. It purports to argue that, contrary to the conventional wisdom, the world is becoming a better place.

ASSA 2018: La feria de las vanidades de la economía y la teoría marxista. Reseña

: Globalización, desigualdad y populismo

ASSA 2018 es la conferencia anual de la American Economic Association, que agrupa a la profesión económica en los EE.UU. para discutir cientos de documentos y debatir los temas e ideas que la economía dominante considera claves.

Mientras Trump lanzaba su última diatriba de tweets extraños en contra de un nuevo libro que relata sus inestables travesuras mentales, los  mejores economistas ortodoxos de Estados Unidos analizaban su política económica.

Y estaban preocupados. Tres cosas atrajeron su atención. La primera fue el aparente fracaso de la globalización desde la Gran Recesión; la segunda, el bajo nivel de crecimiento de la productividad en las principales economías capitalistas en los últimos diez años; y la tercera, la eficacia de la política comercial proteccionista proclamada por Trump, que ha combinado con drásticos recortes de impuestos para el sector empresarial de Estados Unidos y sus amigos ricos de la élite.
