BRICS I – Economic Think Tank Forum

Beijing, China

November 6, 2014



Meeting participants discussed current macroeconomic challenges, the prevention of secular stagnation in advanced countries and how to avoid middle-income trap for emerging economies. As part of the conversation participants explored how to make the rise of BRICS countries beneficial despite transition compel shifts in relative prices as well as dramatic changes in economic structure in both advanced and emerging economies. Participants also attempted to outline how BRICS countries should adequately prepare to deal with monetary policies in the USA. Do we have the right collective provision of international liquidity? Where do regional financial safety nets sit in relation to the global financial safety nets and what are their respective comparative advantages? How do lending instruments differ? What are the modalities of cooperation?
