Lowy Institute for International Policy | International Economy

Photo: Flickr/Moyan Brenn Overview The Lowy Institute’s International Economy program has a very broad scope with the world’s GDP amounting to some US$78 trillion in 2014. The program covers a range of topics across international finance, trade, business, and governance. The program closely follows key players in the international economy including the United States, China, and India, and considers how trends in the international economy affect Australia.  See the examples below to get a feel for the types of questions we ask, and the different answers we provide. International tradeShould Australia join the Trans Pacific Partnership?  Are free trade agreements good for Australia?  Australia’s commodity boomIs Australia set for a slowdown after the commodities boom?  ChinaIs China headed for a financial crisis?  Can China rebalance its economy away from investment?   IndiaCan India get its subsidy payments under control?  Can India reclaim high growth?  The global financial crisis and policies designed to address itAre currency wars bad? Are there other radical policies that could have been employed in the GFC?  International business cyclesAre we in a world of high volatility?  Will investment bounce back?  Economic governanceCan global governance architecture accommodate China?  How is the United States responding to challenges to their hegemony? For detailed analysis on economic governance through the G20, visit the G20 Studies Centre. GlobalisationIs globalisation on the retreat?  Is there any way to revive multilateralism?  What the Lowy Institute does The International Economy program aims to explain developments in the international economy, and influence policy. It does so by undertaking independent analytical research. The International Economy program contributes to the Lowy Institute’s core publications: policy briefs and policy analyses. For example, the program contributed the Lowy Institute Paper Beyond the Boom, by John Edwards, which argued that Australia’s transition away from the commodities boom will be quite smooth. The program hosts economy-focused events, and economy-focused blog posts can be found on the Interpreter.
