A Window of Opportunity Opens: Asian and American Views of the International Economic Architecture
This paper compares US and Asian views of the international economic architecture including Asia’s evolving regional institutions. Lessons from the global financial crisis are used to assess reforms of the financial institutions better to prevent and manage future crises. While G20 leaders have increased the resources of the International Monetary Fund much work remains to restore its legitimacy and independence and to define clearly the Financial Stability Board’s mandate to strengthen financial oversight and regulation. The paper critiques proposals for a global super-regulator and concludes that while the global architecture is important, the tests of its success will be fewer government actions to self-insure and the willingness to heed warnings of future problems and take timely corrective actions.
