Sri Mulyani Indrawati: 'You must make growth inclusive – you have to protect the poor' 12.2.2012 The Guardian -- World Latest
Indonesia's hardline former finance minister helped put her heavily indebted country back on the road to recovery. Now at the World Bank, her new target is inequality For Greece's embattled politicians, who must struggle to convince the public to swallow yet more bitter austerity measures, the intense pressure from rapacious lenders and unforgiving bond markets must seem unprecedented; but Sri Mulyani Indrawati, the most senior woman at the World Bank, has seen it all before. As Indonesia's tough finance minister from 2005 to 2010, and before that as an economic adviser to the Wahid regime that ran Indonesia from 1999 to 2001, she watched her country – one of the most populous in the world – struggle to emerge from decades of dictatorship and economic repression. Indonesia was swept up in the last major financial crisis, in the late 1990s, when international markets fell out of love with the "Asian tiger" economies that they had bankrolled over the previous decade. The resulting ...

Chinese currency at 18 year high ahead of Vice-President's visit to US 11.2.2012 Asian Age: Business
Chinese currency yuan rose to an 18-year-high on Friday, as its Vice-President Xi Jinping, expected to take over as President next year, geared up for a trip to the United States next week. The People's Bank of China set the yuan's central parity rate against the US dollar at 6.29 after the rate rose for two consecutive trading days, according to the China Foreign Exchange Trading System. "The exchange rate will see more fluctuations, although the positive outlook for the Chinese economy has sparked expectations of a strengthening of the currency," said Zhuang Jian, senior economist with the Asian Development Bank. He predicted that yuan may rise about 3 per cent this year. However, that would be slower than the 6 per cent against the dollar in real terms last year. Deputy Foreign Minister Cui Tiankai said on Thursday that Xi's visit is an important opportunity to enhance mutual trust between China and the US. He also hoped that the visit would help ...

Will the 'girl effect' really help to combat poverty? | Ofra Koffman 10.2.2012 The Guardian -- World Latest
Many development organisations see empowering girls – and enabling them to delay childbearing – as a powerful means to tackle poverty, but the evidence so far doesn't bear this out The call to invest in adolescent girls has been sweeping the development field in recent years. Among the supporters of this policy are key stakeholders such as the UK Department for International Development (DfID), the World Bank and several UN agencies. In part, this is linked with the effort of Nike and its philanthropic arm, the Nike Foundation. Several years ago the foundation began focusing on adolescent girls, coining the term the "girl effect" (on development). The empowerment of girls, it is argued, is a powerful way to tackle poverty. This is because, as a special UN taskforce claimed in 2010 , empowered girls will "marry later, delay childbearing, have healthier children, and earn better incomes that will benefit themselves, their families, communities and nations". The slogan used by DfID ...

Rio+20 shows little sign of living up to original Earth summit 9.2.2012 Guardian: Environment
As Brazil prepares for the Rio+20 conference, there is little on the agenda to suggest any substantive action will be taken It is easy to be cynical. Back in 1992, more than 100 world leaders, including George H.W. Bush, showed up for the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro. It was a two-week mega-event that attracted huge attention, highlighted by the signing of two groundbreaking treaties on climate change and biodiversity and grand declarations about creating a future green and equitable world. To put it mildly, the subsequent two decades have not lived up to the promises. George W. Bush effectively broke the climate treaty signed by his father, refusing to sign up to the Kyoto Protocol. Emissions have soared, resource plundering has intensified, nature is still on the retreat, the world has become less equitable, and climate change has gone from distant prospect to frightening reality. While the population bomb may be being defused, the consumption bomb is primed to destroy us all. The ...
