What does state of the global economy look like, and what do they see are the biggest risks out there?

Les investissements chinois en Afrique subsaharienne ont été en hausse ces dernières années, culminant en 2008 à plus de 5 milliards de dollars. Bien que non sans controverse, leur expansion a un effet majeur sur la croissance africaine. Mais ce mouvement se poursuivra-t-il?

Many blame the financial sector for the current economic downturn, but in his new book, Robert Shiller aims to change our way of thinking about the much maligned industry.
Jan 8, 2013
Chinese investment in Sub-Saharan Africa has been on the rise in recent years, peaking in 2008 at more than $5 billion dollars. Although not without some controversy, the increasing investment is having a mojor impact on African growth. But will it continue?

Les envois de fonds jouent un rôle de plus en plus important dans le financement des pays en développement. Comment donc mettre en valeur l’argent envoyé par les travailleurs migrants pour combattre la pauvreté au niveau mondial?
Jan 8, 2013
Remittances have become an increasingly important source of financing in the developing world. So how can money sent home by migrant workers best be used in the fight against global poverty?
Jan 8, 2013
Malgré les retombées de la crise de la dette européenne, les troubles en Côte d’Ivoire et une grave sécheresse au Sahel, tout porte à croire que l’Union économique et monétaire ouest-africaine (UEMOA) fera la preuve de sa résilience cette année. Le FMI estime que, après avoir été inférieur à 1 % en 2011, le taux de croissance sera de 7 % cette année.
Jan 8, 2013
Despite struggling with the effects of the European debt crisis, political turmoil in Cote d'Ivoire and a severe drought in the Sahel, the West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU) promises to prove its resilience in the coming year. After growing less that 1% in 2011, the IMF estimates growth to rebound to 7% this year.
Jan 8, 2013
Ahead of a conference jointly hosted by IMF and the government of Samoa in Apia on March 23, IMF Deputy Managing Director Min Zhu talks about how the Pacific region can promote inclusive growth and build resilience to shocks.
Jan 8, 2013
Over the last few years, many countries in Sub-Saharan Africa have benefited from the rise in commodity prices. But being wealthy in natural resources brings its own problems. The IMF is to host a conference in Kinshasa to discuss how these problems might be overcome.
Jan 8, 2013
Ces dernières années, beaucoup de pays subsahariens ont profité de la hausse des cours des produits de base. Mais l'abondance de ressources naturelles apporte ses propres problèmes. Le FMI organise une conférence à Kinshasa pour examiner comment ces problèmes peuvent être surmontés.
Jan 8, 2013
La famine est un problème chronique du Sahel, mais la sécheresse qui sévit actuellement a anéanti les cultures et aggravé la situation alimentaire. Des millions de personnes sont menacées. La communauté internationale en est-elle consciente?
Jan 8, 2013
Hunger is a chronic problem in the Sahel. But now a widespread drought has wiped out crops and made the food situation worse. Millions are at risk. Is the international community taking enough notice?
Jan 8, 2013
Au niveau mondial, les investissements directs étrangers explosent. En 2007, ils se sont envolés à 2 billions de dollars EU. Les investissements des nations BRICS dans les pays à faible revenu se sont nettement accélérés, alimentant la croissance et le développement.
Jan 8, 2013
To coincide with the release of March’s Finance & Development, we interview one of the contributors to this quarter’s magazine, Philip Coggan. In a new book, Coggan argues that the extraordinary rise in debt levels in recent years will reshape our world order.

As the East African Community considers an ever closer union, the EAC and the International Monetary Fund co-host a conference to draw lessons from the turmoil in the euro area.
Jan 8, 2013
Une nouvelle crise s’annonce dans une région depuis longtemps soumise aux pénuries alimentaires. La sécheresse fait resurgir le spectre de la faim pour des millions d’habitants du Sahel. L’un des pays de la région — le Mali — a entrepris de gérer la menace d’une nouvelle urgence alimentaire.
Jan 8, 2013
Over the last decade, the East African Community has enjoyed some of the fastest growth rates in the world. To continue on its growth path, IMF economists suggest the region can learn lessons from other countries which have enjoyed rapid development.
Jan 8, 2013
À l’échelle mondiale, les pays africains sont probablement parmi les moins biens lotis en matière d’infrastructure. Pendant de longues décennies, les gouvernements de la région manquaient d’options pour financer ces projets. La situation a changé, mais pas nécessairement dans le bon sens.
Jan 8, 2013
A drought is threatening to bring hunger to millions of people in the Sahel—a belt of grassland and savanna running across Africa under the Sahara desert. We look at how one country, Mali, is coping with a looming food emergency.
Jan 8, 2013
Africans suffer some of the weakest infrastructure in the world—a reality holding the continent back from further growth and prosperity. For decades, governments in the region had few options for funding major infrastructure projects. It's all different now. But that's not necessarily a good thing.

Depuis l’éclatement de la crise financière mondiale, les agences de notation ne cessent d’être vouées aux gémonies.
