• What is a Developed Economy?

    Welcome to the Investors Trading Academy talking glossary of financial terms and events. Our word of the day is “Developed Economy” A developed economy defines a nation with a healthy per capita income and low birth rate. Its citizens enjoy a high standard of living, educational opportunities, and access to adequate health care. Also called an industrialized country, a developed economy is measured by a country’s gross domestic product, which typically is well diversified. Most countries with a developed economy export goods worldwide. These regions’ banking, financial, and political systems typically remain stable and contribute to growth and productivity. People living in a developed economy generally live longer because of access to health care and proper nutrition. They tend to be ski...

  • Singapore's Economic Success | The Economist

    When it started life as an independent, separate country in 1965, Singapore’s prospects did not look good. Tiny and underdeveloped, it had no natural resources and a population of relatively recent immigrants with little shared history. The country’s first prime minister, the late Lee Kuan Yew is credited with transforming it. He called one volume of his memoirs, “From Third World to First”. Why did Singapore become an economic success? First, its strategic location and natural harbour helped. It is at the mouth of the Malacca Strait, through which perhaps 40% of world maritime trade passes. It was an important trading post in the 14th century, and again from the 19th, when British diplomat Sir Stamford Raffles founded the modern city. Now it is at the heart of one of the world’s most...

It will stress that different economic activities have intrinsic differences in productivity potential, and argue that it is these differences that are a fundamental cause behind the gap between the rich and poor countries. This will be discussed using a range of examples, most importantly through an analysis of the current state of economic progress in Sub-Saharan Africa.

It was intended as a more appealing way to describe fast-growing countries in what was then known as the third world. But by the end of that decade these emerging economies were still small in comparison to developed economies such as Germany, Japan, and the United States. Over the past 20 years, especially the last ten, the emerging economies have grown quickly accounting for a rising share of world output. In 2008 they finally overtook the developed world accounting for more than half of the world economy if you include countries like South Korea that have since joined the ranks of the...

Now it is at the heart of one of the world’s most dynamic regions. Under Mr Lee, Singapore made the most of these advantages. Second, under Mr Lee, Singapore welcomed foreign trade and investment. Multinationals found Singapore a natural hub and were encouraged to expand and prosper. Third, the government was kept small, efficient and honest—qualities absent in most of Singapore’s neighbours. It regularly tops surveys for the ease of doing business. But the island city is not ideal. Although clean and orderly, it has harsh judicial punishments, a tame press and illiberal social policies. Homosexual acts, for example, remain illegal. Protest demonstrations are rarely permitted. Mr Lee saw his authoritarian style of government as an essential ingredient in Singapore’s success, emphasizing the island’s vulnerability in a potentially hostile neighbourhood. But younger people now question whether Singapore really is that fragile, and resent the restrictions on their freedom.

Throughout this section of the course, we’ve been trying to solve a complicated economic puzzle—why are some countries rich and others poor? There are various factors at play, interacting in a dynamic, and changing environment. And the final answer to the puzzle differs depending on the perspective you're looking from. In this video, you'll examine different pieces of the wealth puzzle, and learn about how they fit. The first piece of the puzzle, is about productivity. You'll learn how physical capital, human capital, technological knowledge, and entrepreneurs all fit together to spur higher productivity in a population. From this perspective, you'll see economic growth as a function of a country's factors of production. You’ll also learn what investments can be made to improve and increase these production factors. Still, even that is too simplistic to explain everything. So we'll also introduce you to another piece of the puzzle: incentives. In previous videos, you learned about the incentives presented by different economic, cultural, and political models. In this video, we'll stay on that track, showing how different incentives produce different results. As an example, you'll learn why something as simple as agriculture isn't nearly so simple at all. We'll put you in the shoes of a hypothetical farmer, for a bit. In those shoes, you'll see how incentives can mean the difference between getting to keep a whole bag of potatoes from your farm, or just a hundredth of a bag from a collective farm. (Trust us, the potatoes explain a lot.) Potatoes aside, you're also going to see how different incentives shaped China's economic landscape during the “Great Leap Forward” of the 1950s and 60s. With incentives as a lens, you'll see why China's supposed leap forward ended in starvation for tens of millions. Hold on—incentives still aren’t the end of it. After all, incentives have to come from somewhere. That “somewhere” is institutions. As we showed you before, institutions dictate incentives. Things like property rights, cultural norms, honest governments, dependable laws, and political stability, all create incentives of different kinds. Remember our hypothetical farmer? Through that farmer, you'll learn how different institutions affect all of us. You'll see how institutions help dictate how hard a person works, and how likely he or she is to invest in the economy, beyond that work. Then, once you understand the full effect of institutions, you'll go beyond that, to the final piece of the wealth puzzle. And it's the most mysterious piece, too. Why? Because the final piece of the puzzle is the amorphous combination of a country’s history, ideas, culture, geography, and even a little luck. These things aren't as direct as the previous pieces, but they matter all the same. You'll see why the US constitution is the way it is, and you'll learn about people like Adam Smith and John Locke, whose ideas helped inform it. And if all this talk of pieces makes you think that the wealth puzzle is a complex one, you’d be right. Because the truth is, the question of “what creates wealth?” really is complex. Even the puzzle pieces you'll learn about don't constitute every variable at play. And as we mentioned earlier, not only are the factors complex, but they're also constantly changing as they bump against each other. Luckily, while the quest to finish the wealth puzzle isn’t over, at least we have some of the pieces in hand. So take the time to dive in and listen to this video and let us know if you have questions along the way. After that, we'll soon head into a new section of the course: we’ll tackle the factors of production so we can further explore what leads to economic growth.

I have compiled a list of the top 20 + world's fastest growing economies highest by looking at a projected annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2014 through 2017, possibly also beyond that. This is based on the forecasts of the IMF's global economic prospects. Take into account that the world's fastest growing economies aren't typically the world's richest countries, whether by GDP Nominal, GDP Per Capita or GDP Purchasing Power Parity. Truth be told that much of these countries are among the most unequal societies in the world where populations suffer for high income inequality, political instability, corruption, bad governance and human rights abuses and other values that the West takes for granted nowadays. However in the developed world it is necessary to actually go out and invent whatever it is which is going to bring on the economic growth. When an economy is within that technological envelope of what has already been invented then that invention doesn’t need to happen: all that is necessary is the implementation. This doesn’t mean that growth is easy, only that catch up growth is easier. It is expected that poorer place to grow more quickly. The end result of this is something called “convergence”, where the poorer countries catch up with the rich ones. Another thing to take into account is that emerging economies are expected to grow two to three times faster than developed nations like the US, Germany, Sweden, Canada, Japan, France, Italy, Australia, New Zealand and so on, according to International Monetary Fund estimates. This growth narrative is important for Main Street investors who are not clued in on the big Wall Street long bull trends. The public investor is still underweight emerging markets in their portfolios. Yet, corporate profits tend to grow faster when economic growth is higher. One of the reasons why US companies have done so well in the last 12 months is because of growth in their non-US markets. Another benefit for investors is the diversification the EMs provide, because they tend to perform differently than developed markets, and have been successful at decoupling from the greater, longer term woes of the mature economies of the West. There are also more and more people in much of those countries who are lifting themselves above poverty and reaching the middle class. Other emerging countries worth investing in are: Cambodia, Hungary, Slovakia, Argentina, Costa Rica, Mongolia, Croatia, Namibia, Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria, Ivory Coast, South Africa, Botswana, Serbia, FYR Macedonia, Vietnam and Sir Lanka.

CSEP Paper 0 is a series of lectures by students designed to address shortcomings in the economics curriculum. This lecture by Jostein Hauge will address some of the shortcomings of mainstream growth theory, particularly of its treatment of the role of production and technology in economic development. It will stress that different economic activities have intrinsic differences in productivity potential, and argue that it is these differences that are a fundamental cause behind the gap between the rich and poor countries. This will be discussed using a range of examples, most importantly through an analysis of the current state of economic progress in Sub-Saharan Africa.

On many measures, the emerging economies now have more heft and reach than the developed ones Subscribe NOW to The Economist: http://econ.st/1Fsu2Vj The term emerging markets was coined in the 1980s. It was intended as a more appealing way to describe fast-growing countries in what was then known as the third world. But by the end of that decade these emerging economies were still small in comparison to developed economies such as Germany, Japan, and the United States. Over the past 20 years, especially the last ten, the emerging economies have grown quickly accounting for a rising share of world output. In 2008 they finally overtook the developed world accounting for more than half of the world economy if you include countries like South Korea that have since joined the ranks of the developed economies and if you take proper account of differences in local prices. This growing clout is most evident in the market for commodities. The emerging economies burned almost 55 percent of all the oil consumed last year their factories and building sites accounted for 65 percent of global copper consumption and three-quarters of the world's consumption of steel. Their consumer power has also grown they bought over half the world's motor vehicles last year, including vans and lorries, and took out over three-quarters of new mobile phone subscriptions. Developing countries were once self-reliant but poor. In recent decades, by contrast, cross-border trade and investment of soared in both directions. Last year they accounted for more than half of the world's exports and more than half of America's overseas sales. Emerging economies have also become more resilient. They have amassed an enormous cushion of hard currency reserves. That insurance may have helped persuade foreigners to invest in their stock markets which have increased greatly in size despite many ups and downs along the way. The emerging economies cannot match the rich world on every measure. For example Japan Europe and America still have few rivals in the emerging world when it comes to public debt which averages 35% of GDP in emerging economies and over a hundred percent in the rich world. The economic weight of the emerging world is profound but not unprecedented. In 1820 these countries accounted for about 70 percent of the world economy, before industrial revolutions in Europe and America left them far behind. Their recent progress is not then another revolution but rather a restoration.
