Eclairages Emergents

Eclairages Emergents is an aperiodic publication offering a series of articles addressing emerging economies or an emerging region from a variety of angles.

  • Éclairages Émergents – Edition October 2013 Sub-Saharan Africa 2013: What developments can we expect?
    Sub-Saharan Africa's economies have enjoyed strong growth in recent years, with average annual GDP growth of 4.8% since 2007. The countries form the world's second fastest growing region, after South East Asia. Perceptions have changed between 2000, when Africa was considered "the hopeless continent"  synonymous with war, famine and AIDS, and today's view of a "Rising Africa"  capable of being a future driver of global growth — with rising domestic consumption, foreign direct investment (FDI), and stronger democracies.

Eclairages Macro

Eclairages Macro is an aperiodic publication providing in-depth analysis of a specific topic.

  • Eclairages Macro – Edition December 2011 Greece vs. Argentina: looks can be deceiving
    Since the beginning of the Greek crisis in late 2009, it has become increasingly common to compare Greece today with Argentina's situation ten years ago. Given Argentina's post-crisis economic recovery, some go as far as to predict, or even recommend, that Greeks opt for an identical shock therapy by exiting from the euro zone, reintroducing a severely devalued national currency and going into a unilateral default. Nevertheless, comparisons are often misleading. We see several major differences that make the Greek situation unique and that require extreme caution when considering the best remedy to be used to end the crisis.

  • Eclairages Industry - Edition April 2011 Brazilian industry: technological challenges and sustainable growth
    Brazil's economy returned to strong growth in 2010. How sustainable the growth in Brazilian industry? Government policy will play an even greater role in stimulating and directing investment in mining (including petroleum) and manufacturing than it plays in agriculture (see Eclairages Industriels, March 2011). Brazil is betting on technology to confirm its position as an industrial power.
