Conference Paper
An education support system
I think the conversation about system change rather than simply school change is beginning to increase in volume despite our culture's resistance to thinking about education in this way. I urge each of you to join this conversation about how we build a local infrastructure, not a school district necessarily, but a local infrastructure with the capacity to make our national education goals a reality rather than a hollow promise.

Conference Paper
Comments on \\"Understanding global imbalances\\"
In Australia, we debated the issue of sustainability of current account deficits extensively during the 1980s. A lot of the arguments that are being aired at the moment bear a striking similarity to the debate that occurred in Australia throughout the 1980s. Now, two decades on, by and large, the majority view of economists in Australia is very similar to that put forward in this excellent paper by Richard Cooper. Although it must be said that while most economists are relaxed about the current account, it still can engender a significant amount of fear amongst politicians and the public, almost the reverse of the situation in the US. The view reached in Australia is akin to the ?consenting adults? view of the Lawson doctrine, although it should be noted that this argument was made by John Pitchford and Max Corden quite some time before Lawson.

Conference Paper
Demographic shocks: the view from history
The paper will basically deal with four issues. The first one puts current changes or shifts into a historical comparative perspective. The second deals with "traditional" shocks or violent disturbances of the system and their consequences. The third discusses the "seismic" changes experienced in the past, attempts their measurement, and exemplifies their effects on population and society. The fourth deals with the relevance that past experience has for current changes.

Conference Paper
Global imbalances: as giants evolve - a conference sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston
?Global imbalances? are currently attracting much attention in policy and financial circles. In most official forecasts the threat of a disorderly correction of these huge imbalances appears as a key risk to the global outlook. While the phrase generally refers to net deficits or surpluses in international trade and investment, when these imbalances are large and persistent, they usually reflect major structural shifts in the distribution of global resources. Frequently cited explanations for today?s historic imbalances range from policy mistakes like ill-advised exchange rate arrangements to a savings glut in Asia juxtaposed with inadequate savings in the United States. Other candidate explanations include the remarkable productivity gains experienced in this country in recent years and the development of large pools of surplus labor released from agriculture and state-controlled enterprises in China, India, and Eastern Europe. Indeed, one of the more basic causal factors, linking others and explaining their current salience, may well be the recent arrival of these giant economies on the global stage. Together China and India?still very poor on a per capita basis?account for almost 40 percent of the world?s population. China is now the world?s second largest economy using purchasing power parity measures, and India is not far behind. ; This conference will gather economists, business leaders, and policymakers from around the world to explore the fundamental structural changes underlying today?s large global imbalances. We?ll consider the pressures and opportunities presented by China?s and India?s recent emergence as important actors in the global economy, and examine how demographic change and the ongoing evolution of the most advanced economies affect international resource flows. Our goal is to gain a better understanding of the required adjustments, the potential correction mechanisms, and the policies most likely to smooth the way.
