World Economics 14.3: The Need to Improve Global Real Estate Data
Real estate is an asset that is talked about more than it is analysed. Property represents the major portion of household wealth and a significant proportion of total corporate assets. It is also an asset frequently used as collateral for other personal and corporate transactions so there are important interconnections between the value of property and the demand for credit in an economy.

Volume 14, Number 3 - Global Real Estate
Real Estate and the Great Financial Crisis
Politicians and macro policymakers have identified regulatory weakness in the banking sector as the key cause of the Great Financial Crisis (GFC). This allows the easy apportionment of blame and...
Understanding Commercial Property Price indexes
The type of database used for the measurement of commercial property price indexes (CPPIs) dictates the potential weaknesses in the resulting indexes and limitations of the methods available for measuring the indexes.
Using Reputation to Grow Corporate Value
Corporate reputations rank amongst companies’ most valuable assets. They are delivering substantial proportions of their market capitalisations and are a major source of value generation.
The Abiding Vulnerability of the Indian Economy
The economic trajectory of the Indian economy has altered several times. After decades of severe underperformance, the Indian economy gradually picked up momentum in the 1980s and 1990s, and turned in a stellar performance during the 2000s.
Asset Poverty in India
In order to formulate policy to target the correctly identified rural poor in India, focus on an income poverty measure alone is insufficient. The purpose of this research is to study a new area of poverty measurement based on data that detail a household’s basic assets.
The Economic Impact of Private Equity
Over the past half century, private equity has grown from a tiny part of the financial sector into a powerful industry, often controlling global brands. As the industry has grown, so too has academic interest.
Demystifying Youth Unemployment
Youth unemployment has become an ever increasing serious socio-economic problem, which deserves far more attention that it has so far received. In this article, we examine the causes of this issue.
Strengthening the Early Warning Exercise
Following the 2007–2008 global financial crisis, the G20 leaders tasked the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the newly created Financial Stability Board (FSB) to jointly undertake Early Warning Exercises (EWEs) in order to identify vulnerabilities within the global financial system and encourage appropriate policy responses.

Industrial Rebalancing is Already Here,
But Can it Continue?
In mid-2012, as China’s economy decelerated, growth in electricity production – traditionally a good proxy for the health of industry – diverged strongly on the downside from official measures of industrial value added...
Poor Economic Statistics Fuel China’s Low Consumption Myth
The generally held belief that China’s consumption is too low is a myth based on inadequate theory, a misreading of official statistics and the use of market exchange rates for making international comparisons...
How Safe is SAFE’s Management of China’s Official Foreign Exchange Reserves?
This paper examines whether the State Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE) and its subsidiary SAFE Investment Company (SIC), the sole managers of China’s gargantuan official foreign exchange reserves (OFER) until 2007...
Cross-Border Financial Integration in Asia and the Macro-Financial Policy Framework
In relative terms, Asia came through the global financial crisis relatively well. In part, this can be attributed to its conservative approach to international financial integration.
Whatever happened to convergence?
This article examines the degree of convergence of the economies of the eurozone since the start of the single currency in 1999. Convergence, both in nominal and real forms, is measured using the coefficient of variation of several economic variables.
Maastricht: Union that Foresaw its Failure but Closed its Eyes
As the global financial and economic crisis drags on, European regulators and policy-makers are continuing in their attempts to find a path from crisis towards stability...
Light at the End of the Tunnel:
The Eurozone’s sovereign debt problem
In October 2012, the Norwegian Nobel Committee honoured the EU with the 2012 peace prize for creating a peaceful and stable Europe after the destructive wars and economic crises of the twentieth century.
The EMU Versus the EPU
This article draws upon the analogy between the current European institutional setting, in the face of the current European crisis, and the rules and institutions that were established in the post-war years to achieve trade liberalisation and a multilateral payments system in Europe.
