The West has moved “left,” and this intensified the already existing tendencies toward state capitalism in the developing world. State Capitalism Comes of Age.

The state penetrates in sectors “as diverse as petrochemicals, power generation, mining, iron and steel production, port management and shipping, weapons manufacturing, cars, heavy machinery, telecommunications, and aviation, a growing number of governments are no longer content with simply regulating the market, a growing number of governments are no longer content with simply regulating the market,” says Bremer.

When the state takes control over economy, the economy becomes a hostage to political goals. India has several advantages which help limit political risk in the country. Brazil will also re-emerge from the financial crisis with it status as an emerging market power intact. Not only control in individual countries, but also some global control as the market has gone very much global.


Even in the current economical climate in the US, it is a stop-gap measure to save many large companies from bankruptcy. China tops the list…of the likeliest winners Q: How should the United States respond? Bremmer considers the recent sharp turn towards state controlled economy as dangerous if it continues too long. The neo-liberal free market ideology was dominant during the last 20 years of the 20th century, but suddenly, inthis trend changed when the United States entered in the biggest financial crisis since The most surprising of these horsemen would probably be the sovereign wealth funds SWFbecause they rocketed to prominence so quickly after having existed as a very small factor in global market performance for many years.

His still high public approval ratings suggest his government will ride out the current crisis with its market-friendly reputation secure.

Risks in Russia Q: Thus I would not say this phenomenon has come of age in the US. Infighting among key politicians in Ukraine prevents its government from moving forward on implementation of changes needed to ensure IMF help is not delayed.

Are we assisting to the swinging of the pendulum in economic doctrines? But in an economic context, state capitalism is not a particularly efficient engine for long-term expansion. Across the United States, Europe, and much of the rest of the developed world, the recent wave of state interventionism is meant to lessen the pain of the current global recession and restore ailing economies to health.

It accelerated with the growth in importance of emerging markets to global economic growth. But it needs better control than what existed over the last decade in the US. Managing China’s looming social and environmental challenges will ultimately prove beyond the capacity of bureaucrats; they will eventually realize that the free market is more likely to help them feed and house the country’s 1.
