Venue: Room 606, School of Economics, Peking University
Speaker: Vincenzo Quadrini (Marhsall School of Business, University of Southern California)
In this paper I study how the low interest rate policies adopted by industrialized countries may have impacted the economic performance of emerging countries. Although these policies have been associated with a reduced outflows of capital away from emerging countries, the economic performance of these countries has deteriorated more than in industrial countries. I propose a model where lower interest rates in industrialized countries could have negative macroeconomic effects for emerging countries, contrary to the more traditional view.
