In the aftermath of the 2008-09 financial crisis, growth has been slowing down in developed economies and emerging economies, even though it had been thought that emerging economies could de-couple from advanced economies and become the main engine of global growth. A variety of reasons has been offered to explain such slow growth, including slowing technological change, balance sheet recessions created by the private debt overhang, and insufficient demand. In the case of emerging economies, the current growth malaise is also related to the long-term difficulties for middle-income economies to converge to high-income status: the so-called “middle-income trap”.
