Stephen Roach

Program Description:
Leading economist Stephen Roach will conclude our series Global Economy in 2015: World of Uncertainty. He is one of the region's most high-profile economists and is recognized as an influential expert on global imbalances and on Asia's growing role in the world. He has argued that The Great Crisis of 2008-2009 was a manifestation of a decade of increasingly unbalanced global growth; a decade when excess consumption soared to new highs in the United States and China became the world's biggest saver. Now more than ever, a global rebalancing needs to occur. Will China be able to wean itself from the export-led growth model that has long defined its economic character? Will the United States be able to boost saving, investment and exports? Looking ahead, what other countries pose risk to the balance of the global economy?
