Summary

Senior fellows Michael Mussa, Martin Baily, and Anders Åslund discussed the international economic outlook for 2006 at the Institute's ninth semiannual Global Economics Prospects meeting.

Michael Mussa was chief economist of the International Monetary Fund from 1991 until 2001 and a member of the Council of Economic Advisers during 1986–88; he addresses the outlook for the overall world economy. Martin Baily was Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers from 1999 until early 2001; he focuses on the prospects for growth and inflation in the United States.  Anders Åslund, a leading expert on Russia, the rest of the former Soviet Union, and Eastern Europe, describes the likely contribution of that rapidly growing region to the global outlook over the medium term.
