The themes of the last decade were (1) WTO for China which stimulated a growth boom, (2) U.S. 9/11 which resulted in war and fiscal/monetary stimulus that lead to excesses, lax regulations, easy money that stimulated false growth and asset bubbles and crisis, and (3) Euro created consumption/asset inflation boom in the periphery of Europe. All of these will slow or reverse this decade. Instead, the U.S. will grow because of (a) insourcing through technology advances that will make the U.S. competitive, and (b) through becoming more energy self-sufficient through new sources of energy and the use of technology. In addition, the internationalization of the RMB will create new opportunities for China. We will discuss these themes and whether the global recession is ending or whether the debt-deleveraging overhang from the 2008 crisis will slow growth during this decade.
