No One Expected Latin America To Slow Down Like This

Screenshot 2014 11 23 15.27.12IT WAS great while it lasted. In a golden period from 2003 to 2010 Latin America’s economies grew at an annual average rate of close to 5%, wages rose and unemployment fell, more than 50m people were lifted out of poverty and the middle class swelled to more than a third of the population.

But now the growth spurt is over. What some worried would be a “new normal” of expansion of 3% a year is turning out to be far worse.

The region’s economies will on average grow by only around 1.3% this year. Analysts continue to slash their forecasts, as they have done for the past two years (see chart).

They now expect only the mildest of recoveries next year: both the IMF and the World Bank foresee growth of just 2.2% in 2015.

Latin America is decelerating faster than much of the rest of the emerging world, points out Augusto de la Torre, the bank’s chief economist for the region. Alejandro Werner, his counterpart at the IMF, sees growth averaging just 2.7% over the next five years.

Some of the reasons are obvious. The biggest factor is the end of the commodity boom. As China’s growth slackens, commodity prices have slumped back to their lowest levels since the 2009 world recession. Now the oil price has been hit, too, thanks mainly to increased output in the United States.

All this has hurt the commodity-producing economies of South America, though some benefit from cheaper oil. The outlook for Mexico, with its structural reforms and manufacturing ties to North America, is slightly brighter.

Worst off are those countries with populist governments that squandered the windfall from the boom. Forecasters see no let-up in the stagflation afflicting Venezuela and Argentina. Thanks to lack of investment and clumsy macroeconomic management, Brazil’s economy will barely grow this year and faces a fiscal squeeze in 2015.

Yet the deceleration goes far wider. The high-flying and well-run economies of Chile, Peru and Colombia are all suffering. The growth rate this year in Chile (2%) and Peru (around 3%) is half that of 2013. Contrast that with sub-Saharan Africa, which is also a big commodity producer and where the IMF expects growth of 5.1% this year and 5.8% next.

A second oft-cited cause of the Latin doldrums is the move to normal monetary policy in the United States, which will raise the cost of borrowing in the region. But there are few signs of this having an impact yet. Latin American companies are issuing bonds at an accelerating rate.

Some economists now reckon that the boom masked deep-rooted structural problems. Latin America’s record in productivity may have been even worse than the data seemed to indicate, says Mr de la Torre. The effect of changes in the terms of trade, and the weight of service businesses and of the informal economy in the region, makes this especially hard to calculate.

Bello has two other hunches. One is that the region’s poor education and skills shortage have caught up with it. To watch and wait as staff in shops or at telecoms companies battle with IT equipment that either they don’t know how to operate or is frequently out of order is to wonder whether technology is enhancing or undermining productivity.

The second is that the failure to invest in public transport means that the region’s big cities, clogged with the new cars the boom afforded, reap fewer economies of scale and specialisation, because people find it so difficult to move around.

What does seem clear is that the region is suffering a structural supply-side shock. Many economies have been operating close to capacity, points out Mr Werner. So demand-priming stimulus–such as Brazil’s loose fiscal policy or Peru’s recent giveaway of an extra bonus to public employees–looks mistaken. Fiscal balances have weakened by an average of three points of GDP since the 2009 recession.

Nevertheless, low debt, stronger banks and more reserves permit looser monetary policy in some places. Many Latin currencies are depreciating, without prompting the panic of the past and thus offering the hope of growth in exports besides commodities (though it is unclear how many companies may find it harder to repay their foreign bonds). With borrowing costs still low, now is the time for these countries to step up investment in infrastructure.

Such investments, like much-needed efforts to improve education and training, take years to bear fruit. The problem is that Latin America’s leaders confront a mobilised population that has grown used to the good times.

This calls for politically deft statesmanship. Where it is absent, Latin America may become more combustible in the next few years.

The physics of productivity: Newton’s laws for getting stuff done

physics of productivity
James Clear writes about using behavioral science to master your habits and improve your health. His free guide, Transform Your Habits, has been downloaded more than 80,000 times. This post originally appeared on his blog. In 1687, Sir Isaac Newton published his groundbreaking book, Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy, which described his three laws of motion. In the process, Newton laid the foundation for classical mechanics and redefined the way the world looked at physics and science. What most people don’t know, however, is that Newton’s three laws of motion can be used as an interesting analogy for increasing your productivity, simplifying your work,…

Lil B Drops Knowledge On MIT Students

Anything’s possible kids. Lil B continues his mission to drop his worldly Based knowledge at colleges and universities throughout the nation. Last night, the polarizing Bay Area MC was the guest lecturer Massachusetts Institute of Technology. A shirtless and sagging Based God gave a rousing speech to the engaged crowd that covered everything from art, the workforce, GMOs, photosynthesis and Based God’s Curse. Check out video of B explaining the curse’s status, above.

Lil B might have a second calling. In 2012, he lectured at NYU, where he spoke about running for president, relationships, racial politics, and health among other things. Last year Lil B was on a college lecture tour, stopping at UC Riverside to speak about love, respect and selling out his guest lecture at Virginia Tech in 20 minutes.

Check out the full transcript of his MIT speech and Q&A, HERE.

Norwegian prodigy Carlsen retains World Chess championship

India's Viswanathan Anand (L) and Norway's Magnus Carlsen compete in their 10th championship chess match in Chennai on November 22, 2013

Moscow (AFP) – Norwegian prodigy Magnus Carlsen retained his title as World Chess Champion on Sunday, vanquishing rival Viswanathan Anand for the second year in a row.

The 23-year-old world number one beat India’s Viswanathan, who had held on to the championship from 2007 to 2013 until being dethroned by Carlsen, in the 11th game of the competition.

“Overall, throughout the match, Carlsen played better than I did,” Viswanathan was quoted as saying by Russian news agency TASS.

“I tried, but the risk didn’t work out. Carlsen didn’t make a mistake. I had nothing left to do but take risks.”

Carlsen had been playing since November 8 against Viswanathan, who is nearly 20 years his senior, in the Russian Black Sea resort of Sochi.   

The victory will mean one million euros ($1.2 million) in prize money for Carlsen just a week before his 24th birthday.

Before he captured the championship title in 2013, the last Westerner to hold the world champion title was American legend Bobby Fischer who relinquished it in 1975.

Introduced to chess by his father, Carlsen showed off his genius as a toddler.

His breakthrough in chess came in 2004, when the 13-year-old defeated Russian former world champion Anatoly Karpov, forced Garry Kasparov to a draw and became a grandmaster.

At the age of two, Carlsen knew by heart all the major car brands and later memorised the long list of Norway’s municipalities, with their flags and administrative centres.

A fashion model in his spare time, he made it to the Time magazine list of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2013.

Carlsen has been hailed by Russian legend Kasparov as a Harry Potter-type “super-talent”.
