Is it the end

The inflation has a big impact on all the businesses at the time when we actually see a steay recovery from the different crisis. But this is definitely a cycle .. it repeats and repeats. It is very important for countires like China and other developing nations to actually have a strong dollar value to gain good profits on their imports. But at the same time as the economy of the developing nations becomes strong enough to weaken the us dollar in the near future.

Life is full of ups and downs. The impact on the US currency due to ungoing world crisis may exist for awhile. Inflation leads to liquidations. How many businesses have been impacted? How many have closed their shops? It appears endless but we should still hope that things will get better with time.

HC;

Resource acquisition (such as opening new mines by Japan), effective management of all resources (including re-cycling of Rare Earth Metals), expertise in human and money management, and ongoing innovation are the basic essentials that have to work well together in an interpendent and inter-related manner (systems approach) to achieve good outcomes. I don't believe there is a magic ingredient toto add.

No one country has all the right mixes of resources, hence the reason for the global economy.

Jbond, you’re absolutely right that the discussions may not change much; nevertheless, it is achieving something. The fact that it is been discussed.

This is such a great discussion on global economic situation, which is varying on many factors natural calamities like Japan's earth quake, war on Libiya, these factors having huge impact on daily fluctuation in dollar exchange rate, rising gold and oil prices. I hope there should be an end all these economic crisis in future.

Until something can be done about the daily fluctuations of currency exchange rates, inflation and the drastic rise in commodities, this talk will not do much. Yes, it might bring out a few ideas and shed some light on current issues, but this is not a group that can fix global issues. All they can hope to accomplish is to hopefully prepare themselves for the global rollercoaster of economics.

I am taking the opportunity to share some opinions also from my side. I agree with HC, maybe any countries have right mix of resources. Furthermore, since decades ago, we assist to the process that US $ is per excellence the currency influencing any economy and as of today, personally speaking, there aren't others across the globe with similar "power" and "weight".

Does any country have the right mixes of resources?

Even China has been fairly aggressive in recent years with regard to making friends with resource rich countries around the world, but ultimately the resource that matters the most is going to be 'Expertise'.

It is only with this resource that the other resource requirements can be correctly managed, 'short of a material':- use 'expertise' to find other alternatives to the material, or better still exploit a low value resource from else ware but reengineer it into something useful.

This is a direction Japan is taking since China started to squeeze the  rare earth market, the Americans have taken a more physical approach, that approach being stockpiling and opening new mineing resources that were previously un-echanomic to develop,  but again this has required 'Expertise' to be applied to solving the pollution problems associated with  extracting these materials. China takes a simpler 'Expertise' approach which is:  'just polute' and worry about it later.

However we have also seen China recently attempting to purchase Western companies, not so much for the technological aspect of what they contain, but rather gearing up towards the Expertise aspect, it would appear that they are slowly realizing that Technology does not equate expertise in a particular field, or to put it another way (my mom owns two mobile phones, she can use them and knows how they work, but she is going to be hard pressed to innovate a new mobile phone technology or solution).

Personally I would not put much store in financial expertise, after all it is such 'expertise' that has presided over each and every single financial market crash, if indeed these people are experts, then they would have seen it coming or at the very least put systems in place to reduce or negate  such  situations.

How much weightage ?

I am not sure how seriously these predictions should be taken by the investor community. The people or the institutions which really control the world economic scenario are the fiscal policies of the governments , the state owned banks' lending policies and the trade unions' demands for the wage revisions. The think tanks in the bodies like International Monetary fund may have a better  birds-eye-view on such matters.
