A Risky Business

Center for Global Development Global Health Forecasting Working Group

Access to medicines is an issue of life or death for millions of people in poor countries. While great strides have been made in the last decade to improve health in poor countries the global supply chain that connects the dots does not work well. This report of the Global Health Forecasting Working Group, which was convened in early 2006 by senior fellow and director of programmes Ruth Levine, provides an elegant analysis of the problem and a sensible agenda for action.

Growing Pains in Latin America

Liliana Rojas-Suarez

This book tackles the complex issue of how to accelerate economic growth and ensure sustainability in Latin America. It first lays out the framework designed by experts in the economics and politics of growth in the region. Although simple and intuitive, the framework addresses the many ingredients that shape economic growth there, including macroeconomics, the quality of political institutions, productivity, income inequality, democracy, and resistance to reform.A second group of experts then apply the framework to five countries: Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, and Peru. They provide specific policy recommendations on how to proceed with the reform process while taking into account the local conditions (economic, social, and political) that characterize the individual countries.

Achieving an AIDS Transition

Mead Over

Five million people in poor countries are receiving AIDS treatment, but international AIDS policy is still in crisis. Donors are giving less than they had been, even though infections continue unabated, and the number of people dependent on treatment rises each year.This book proposes a feasible medium-term objective for AIDS policy: achieving an "AIDS transition," that is, keeping AIDS deaths down by sustaining treatment while pushing new infections even lower, so that the total number of people living with HIV/AIDS begins to decline. How? Through a new, incentive-driven strategy to improve HIV prevention and a sustained effort to get the most from AIDS treatment.

The Governor's Solution

Todd Moss

Reliance on natural resource revenues, particularly oil, is often associated with bad governance, corruption, and poverty. Worried about the effect of oil on Alaska, Governor Jay Hammond had a simple yet revolutionary idea: let citizens have a direct stake. The Governor's Solution features his firsthand account that describes, with brutal honesty and piercing humor, the birth of the Alaska Permanent Fund dividend, which has been paid to each resident every year since 1982.Thirty years later, Hammond's vision is still influencing oil policies throughout the world. This reader, part of the Center for Global Development's Oil-to-Cash initiative, includes recent scholarly work examining Alaska's experience and how other oil-rich societies, particularly Iraq, might apply some of the lessons. It is as a powerful reminder that the combination of new ideas and determined individuals can make a tremendous difference—even in issues as seemingly complex and intractable as fighting the oil curse.

Partners in Prosperity

Daniel S. Hamilton

One of the most dangerous deficits facing transatlantic relations today is not in trade, payments, or military capabilities. It is a deficit in understanding the vital stake Americans and Europeans have developed in the health of their economic relationship. Globalization is happening faster and reaching deeper between Europe and America than between any other two continents. The transatlantic economy generates roughly $3.5 trillion in total commercial sales a year and employs over 12 million workers in mutually "insourced" jobs. This book maps the increasingly dense web of investment, trade, and jobs that connects Europe's regions to America's states. It traces the impact of NAFTA and EU enlargement on transatlantic economic flows. It tracks intercontinental "connectivity" in the new knowledge economy, and it sets forth areas in which Europe and America continue to be global pathfinders. In the context of today's debates about globalization and transatlantic drift, this book offers some unanticipated and counterintuitive connections that have important policy implications.

Deep Integration

Daniel S. Hamilton

A Center for Transatlantic Relations SAIS and Center for European Policy Studies publicationOne of the defining features of the global economic landscape over the past decade has been the increasing integration and cohesion of the transatlantic economy. Globalization is happening faster and reaching deeper between Europe and America than between any other two continents.Transatlantic markets are the cutting edge of globalization. Key sectors of the transatlantic economy are integrating as never before. Europeans and Americans have become so intertwined that they are literally in each other¡¯s business. These linkages underpin a $3 trillion economy that provides up to 14 million ¡®insourced jobs¡¯ on both sides of the Atlantic. Deep integration, however, can also generate frictions when different systems rub up against each other. Neither the framework for our relationship nor the ways our governments are currently organized adequately capture these new realities.Case studies illustrate the phenomenon of deep transatlantic integration and its implications for a truly free Transatlantic Market in such sectors as aerospace and civil aviation, biopharmaceuticals, services, financial markets and telecommunications, and in such controversial policy areas as climate change and emissions trading, corporate governance and chemicals regulation.Contributors include: Richard Aboulafia (Teal Group), Matthew Dixon(Tyler and Company), Christian Egenhofer (Centre for European Policy Studies), Frederick Erixon (Timbro), Daniel Gros (SAIS Center for Transatlantic Relations, Johns Hopkins University), Arman Khachaturyan (Armenia Telephone Company and CEPS), Karel Lannoo (CEPS), Boaz Moselle (Brattle Group), Thomas Mayer (Deutsche Bank), Joseph A.

Sleeping Giant

Daniel S. Hamilton

Service activities are the sleeping giant of the transatlantic economy. If awakened and unbound, they would further deepen the commercial stakes between the United States and Europe and enhance global competitiveness on both sides of the Atlantic. Today, services account for the largest share of gross domestic product in virtually all of the nations that comprise the transatlantic economy. The service economies of the United States and Europe have never been as intertwined as they are today, notably in such activities as financial services, telecommunications, utilities, insurance, advertising, computer services, and other related functions. Europe is the most important market in the world for U.S. global sales of services; the United States is Europe's most important market for services as well. Yet the full potential of the transatlantic service economy remains hampered by internal barriers, regulation, and obstacles in the U.S. and in Europe. This volume explores the prospects and challenges associated with opening the transatlantic service economy. European and American authors examine the state of the U.S. and European service economies; offer case studies in key sectors such as health services, financial services, and telecommunications; and highlight the opportunities for the United States, Europe, and the rest of the world.
