Matolcsy: A new global landscape

English2020. okt 16.GOVERNOR MATOLCSY100WORDS

On the one hand the source of political risk and instability is indeed shifting between developed and emerging markets /Gillian Tett, FT, 2 October 2020/, but on the other hand we witness the emergence of two new groups of countries.

The first one tends to be a northern economy, with able governments, enlightened population and strong institutions. The second one tends to be a southern economy, with weak governments, divided population and decentralized institutions. There are exceptions to the rule, especially when a northern developed country does not enjoy the benefits of an able government.

This is a new geography for investors where the effectiveness of governments and central banks determine the results of handling both the pandemic and the future reconstruction of the economy.
