Koo ✓ 1 CHARACTERS Compare global experiences during the balance sheet recession and find out what is needed for a full recovery The Escape from Balance Sheet Recession and the E Trap details the many hidden dangers remaining as the world slowly recovers from the balance sheet recession of 2008 Author and leading economist Richard Koo explains the uniue political and economic pitfalls that stand in the way of recovery from this rare type of recession that was largely overlooked by economists Koo anticipated the current predicament in the West long before others and issued warnings in his previous books Balance Sheet Recession and The Holy Grail of Macroeconomics This new book illustrates how history is repeating itself in Europe while the United States which learnt from the Japanese e The update of Richard Koo s classic The Holy Grail of Macroeconomics is a better book than the originalIt is less verbose to the point has evidence to support the main thesis it applies the theory to the European Union particularly well and comes with a bonus chapter on ChinaIt is however not as significant a contribution and here s whyThe original appeared in 2008 just as things were unravelling in the West and predicted with uncanny accuracy exactly how wrong things could go if the wrong policies were adopted Drawing on the author s reading of the Japanese experience from 1990 to 2007 it explained for the first time anywhere a very unorthodox but 100% correct theory on when monetary policy works and when it amounts to what Keynes described as pushing on a string The ten line summary of the theory has two parts first that there are two types of recessions i the ones caused by the five to ten year inventory cycle and ii the ones caused by the thirty to fifty year leverage cycle previously described by Irving Fischer and Hyman Minsky Second the author postulated that if a recession is caused by the overbuilding of inventory and capacity for which there was no corresponding demand then low interest rates will be seized by healthy borrowers to pick up the pieces and re start the economy If however it is overleveraging and a subseuent collapse in asset prices that lies behind the recession then the private sector will be concerned with rebuilding its balance sheet than with profit maximization cheaper money will prove to be of no use to anybody and the only way to set the economy right is with fiscal stimulus funded by the government issuing the necessary bonds to absorb savings that would otherwise not be put to productive useRichard Koo was for the longest time the only person anywhere making this point and very sadly this book could very easily had been entitled I TOLD YOU SO That s obviously a shame because I was really hoping that after having made the biggest contribution to macroeconomics in a good seventy years and I m definitely not exaggerating here the author would have tried to address the instances where his theory did not work 100% to plan So for example the US seems actually to have reinflated the bubble by getting every American to accept a car loan again As I m writing this subprime car loans are all the rage and have pushed US car sales past all previous records I d have loved to hear what Richard Koo thinks about that Similarly asset prices are setting new records even though entire continents remain deep in what he calls balance sheet recession Please Dr Koo tell us what you think we beg youSo where the Holy Grail fully explained the past and did an unbelievable job of explaining predicting the future the Escape from the Balance Sheet Recession and the E trap kind of pretends that the bits where the predictions turned out to be 75% accurate actually hit the bullseyeSome great new ideas observations are introduced of course The author explains why we re now stuck with E and demonstrates a series of problems we will face on the way out In particular he explains why the current plan to first raise rates and then sell the accumulated bonds is flawed a low anchor for rates would be very useful when we re selling if we ever do He explains that excess private savings in peripheral Europe actually get recycled into German government bonds rather than in their domestic markets preventing peripheral European governments from engaging in the necessary fiscal stimulus while conversely private savings in core Europe no longer hemmed in by currency risk chased higher yields in peripheral Europe fuelling housing bubbles and government spending bubbles Based on the two last observations he proposes that private savings in both core Europe and peripheral Europe should be prevented from investing in non domestic government bonds or at the very least penalised eg via risk weightings when they do He explains that Eurobonds would address the procyclical and destabilising effects described above but would not solve the political problem of how much debt to issue and how to allocate the proceeds among Eurozone members The concept of the Lewis turning point is discussed with reference to China this being the point where the labor that could easily be diverted toward urbanization and industrialization is as good as exhaustedIn summary if you have managed to get to year 2015 without having read The Holy Grail of Macroeconomics then by all means read the new book instead It s better

Koo ✓ 1 CHARACTERS Xperience is doing better by avoiding the fiscal cliff However because of the liberal dosage of uantitative easing already implemented the United States the United Kingdom and Japan may face a treacherous path to normalcy in what Koo calls the E Trap He argues that it is necessary to understand balance sheet recession in order to resolve the Eurozone crisis particularly the competitiveness problems Koo issues warnings against those who are too ready to argue for structural reforms when the problems are actually with balance sheets He re examines Japan's two decades of experiences with this rare recession and offers an insider view on the Abenomics On China readers will gain a very different historical perspective as Koo argues that western commentators have forgotte A bit repetitive as I have previously read the Holy Grail but the chapters on the Eurozone and China were a great read they offered a novel approach of analysing both economiesThe Eurozone chapter is a great complement to Martin Wolfe s The Shifts and the ShocksI also liked Koo s take on Piketty s work
