WSJ: IMF Warns of Threats to Recovery


quote:

The fragility of the recovery in most advanced economies suggests that they should continue with already-planned fiscal stimulus measures this year. By next year, the IMF figures that recoveries could become self-sustaining so many countries could begin "significant" reduction in deficits, even as monetary policy remains easy. The IMF didn't give specific advice about which countries should reduce fiscal stimulus next year—or how deeply.

But the IMF is clearly worried about rising debt levels choking off recoveries by boosting interest rates for governments, banks and other commercial borrowers.

That expands on an earlier list of concerns from IMF Managing Director, Dominique Strauss-Kahn:


quote:

Strauss-Kahn identified several key concerns.

• Unemployment is still growing, posing the threat of social unrest and even conflict if not tackled.

• The risk appetite of investors is on the rise. While investors are still not putting capital into advanced economies, large sums are flowing into emerging economies, including Russia, Brazil, and emerging Asia, creating the risk both of asset bubbles or of a damaging abrupt halt in inflows.

• The financial system remains damaged. Japan's experience with its own financial crisis since the late 1990s shows that recovery begins only when companies and banks have cleaned up their balance sheets.

• The timing of unwinding of government stimulus measures is crucial. Although governments are now saddled with high debts from the anti-crisis measures, trying to remove the stimulus measures too quickly could result in a “double dip” recession, with advanced economies in particular falling back into negative growth.

The latest Global Financial Stability Report from the IMF further expands on the risk of a sovereign debt crisis.


quote:

the biggest threats have moved from the private to the public sectors in advanced economies. Governments not only took on many of the bad assets from private institutions but due to the recession face continuing heavy borrowing needs for the next few years. Slow growth in the real economy and high unemployment will retard tax revenues and require higher government spending—such as on unemployment benefits and job creation activities.

Bill Bonner: The Daily Reckoning


quote:

This is the strange bifurcation in today’s financial world. Those of us who bother to think about it (both of us) believe there’s trouble coming. You can’t de-leverage a 60-year credit expansion in just a few months. You can’t correct a debt problem by adding more debt. And you can’t fix the private sector by beefing up the public sector.

Kansas City Fed President Thomas Hoenig: What About Zero?


quote:

Low rates, over time, systematically contribute to the buildup of financial imbalances by leading banks and investors to search for yield. The search for yield involves investing in less-liquid assets and using short-term sources of funds to invest in long-term assets, which are necessarily riskier. Together, these forces lead banks and investors to take on additional risk, increase leverage, and, in time, bring in growing imbalances, perhaps a bubble and a financial collapse.
