    Outsider politics not going away

    News, Mohamed A El-Erian, Published on 13/06/2017

    » It is tempting to consider last week's UK election -- in which the two major parties combined to take more seats in parliament -- another indication that the anti-establishment phenomenon that propelled Brexit and President Donald Trump's victory is waning. That would be a mistake. A closer look suggests that, far from going away, the phenomenon is evolving, with potential consequences for key upcoming European elections.

    Sound economic policies founder on toxic politics

    News, Mohamed A El-Erian, Published on 17/10/2016

    » The relationship between politics and economics is changing. Advanced-country politicians are locked in bizarre, often toxic, conflicts, instead of acting on a growing economic consensus about how to escape a protracted period of low and unequal growth. This trend must be reversed, before it structurally cripples the advanced world and sweeps up the emerging economies, too.

    News, Mohamed A El-Erian, Published on 04/10/2016

    Young people are being left behind

    News, Mohamed A El-Erian, Published on 20/07/2016

    » Once again, young people have got the short end of the political stick. The outcome of the United Kingdom's Brexit referendum is but another reminder of a yawning generational divide that cuts across political affiliation, income levels, and race.

    News, Mohamed A El-Erian, Published on 22/09/2015

    » After repeated bungling, Europe suddenly has an opportunity to do the right thing about Greece's unsustainable debt. It would be a tragedy -- for both Greece and Europe -- if this opening went to waste.

    Markets must build stability for long-term growth

    News, Mohamed A El-Erian, Published on 29/09/2015

    Global oil prices tumble to new normal

    News, Mohamed A El-Erian, Published on 18/08/2015

    » Oil prices have been heading south again, with a barrel of US crude recently falling below $42 (1,470 baht) -- the lowest level since March 2009, the nadir of the global financial crisis.

    Stop blaming woes on Varoufakis

    News, Mohamed A El-Erian, Published on 31/07/2015

While I have never met or spoken to him, I believe that he is getting a bad rap (and increasingly so). In the process, attention is being diverted away from the issues that are central to Greece's ability to recover and prosper — whether it stays in the eurozone or decides to leave.
