FACT CHECKER What the economists call the “lost decade” of the American economy could be the last major economic downturn in the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia in the foreseeable future, according to a report published Wednesday.
The report from the London School of Economics and Political Science examined three years of data from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank to see how the global economy would be affected by the Great Recession, the worst of the Great Depression.
The economists found that even with the economic boom that has occurred in recent years, the United Sates would be hit hardest by the downturn, with an overall loss of around 5% of gross domestic product (GDP).
The report found that the global financial crisis was already beginning to impact the United states, but the loss in the financial sector would be even more severe because of the way that the United Nations and other international bodies have structured their financial support for the global recovery.
The IMF has been more restrictive in terms of how it uses the money it has lent to countries like the United State, and the World Bank has been less so, with the United Nation’s financial system largely under the control of the World Trade Organization (WTO).
The authors say that the IMF is using its power to provide financing for the financial institutions of the developing world while leaving them to their own devices.
In addition, they found that most of the financial systems of the major economies are underfunded by their own governments, meaning that they are not ready to take on the burdens of debt.
“The IMF and the WTO are using the financial crisis as a tool to push through their austerity programs,” said Robert Pollin, an economist at the London school.
The authors of the report say that this is particularly the case in the U.S., which they say is experiencing its “lost decades.”
“While some are quick to say that there is nothing wrong with austerity in the developed world, others see it as a necessary part of a broader plan to save the global economies from their own crises,” said James F. Lafferty, a professor of economics at the University of California, Davis.
“Austerity is a necessary step to help the developing economies to rebuild themselves after the financial crises of 2008 and 2009, but it is not a cure-all.”
The report also found that despite the economic recovery in the world, the global population is still growing, with people living longer and having more children.
In a statement to The American President, the IMF said that while the global economic recovery was “robust” and that it was “nowhere near full employment” by the end of 2020, it added that it is “critical” that the world does not “reject” the U.,S.
and other developed countries from becoming more open economies, which it said would put their economies at risk.
“We need a global economic and political consensus that supports an expansion of trade and investment, investment in public services, and a commitment to social, environmental, and human rights,” the IMF statement said.
But the economists warn that the U,S.
could be left behind if it does not adopt a new, more liberal trade policy that is “more aligned with the aspirations of the world’s developing economies.”
“If the global leaders continue to maintain the status quo and the status of the current economic framework, they risk further damaging the global trade system, which is crucial for the survival of many economies in the future,” the authors wrote.
