I've been out of the office for a while, so here's a collection of some of the things that caught my eye while traveling over the last week or two:

  • Can we use early warning systems to predict the next major financial crisis? Jeffrey Frankel and George Saravelos say 'yes'. Andrew Rose and Mark Spiegel are sceptical.
  • China's much anticipated IMF Article IV report is now available. And here is the Fund's latest report on the US economy.
  • Barry Eichengreen and Peter Temin compare (pdf) the euro to the gold standard.
  • Niall Ferguson debates himself.
  • In the FT, Martin Wolf muses on the political genius of supply-side economics, Edward Luce writes on the crisis of middle-class America and Alan Beattie has lunch with Alan Greenspan.
  • A report from the BIS on long-term issues in international banking.
  • John Cassidy on Paul Volcker in the New Yorker.
  • The Harvard Kennedy School's Indonesia Program has released its strategic assessment of Indonesia's development challenges.
