Overview

This book-based on the 2007 International Conference on "Winds of Change: The Impact of Globalization on Europe and Asia" in Kyiv, Ukraine-addresses the growing global macroeconomic imbalances and the challenges of globalization and long-term economic growth, with a focus on Europe and Asia. Various aspects of the macroeconomic imbalances are the theme of the first six chapters. The second part of the book discusses how the capitalist model of economic development is developing or should evolve, with the last two chapters considering options available to European policymakers to compete with and adjust to the rapidly growing East Asian Tigers-Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, and South Korea-and China.

The conference was organized by Warsaw-based Center for Social and Economic Research and included 40 panelists drawn from the International Monetary Fund, European Commission, United Nations Economic Commission for Europe, various governments, leading Washington- and Brussels-based think tanks, and universities across the world.
