Seventh Edition of the Atlantic Dialogues Conference under the theme: Atlantic Dynamics: Overcoming the Choke Points

Marrakesh, Morocco

Since its inception in 2012, the Atlantic Dialogues (AD) conference has become a well-established annual meeting point taking place in Marrakesh, bringing together around 350 high-level senior officials, business leaders, academics, opinion shapers and civil society actors. Morocco has been host to these gatherings given its location and close relations to all countries bordering the Atlantic. Initially created in a dual effort between the OCP Policy Center and the German Marshall Fund of the United States, the event encourages a lively and informal exchange of views between young professionals and today’s leaders.

Call for submissions: Africa and global commodity markets: towards a new paradigm? For the 6th Bordeaux Workshop in International Economics and Finance

 

Theme

Over the last two decades, as in previous decades, commodity prices have gone through particularly significant upward and downward phases, which have not been without major consequences on the economic, social and political realities of African exporting countries. The ambition of this workshop, two years after the return of bullish prices, is to appreciate the nature of the various links that unite Africa and world commodity markets and to characterize a possible paradigm shift. Considering the high degree of commodities’ price instability, has the macroeconomic resilience of the African continent increased over the last decade? What have been the consequences of the financialization of commodity markets on the reality of African producers? What are the challenges that Africa must now overcome to ensure the economic diversification that governments are calling for? Is there a significant evolution since the end of the super-cycle of the relations between Africa on the one hand and Western or Chinese groups on the other? What are the opportunities offered to African producers by the creation of the Continental free trade area and the promotion of continental demand? Is a reform of global commodity markets that would benefit African countries now only a distant utopia? So many questions, among others, that this workshop will try to address. This analysis could be as general as it could be specific to a specific commodity or a (group of) country. In this respect, this workshop is not necessarily limited to strictly economic approaches and remains open to alternative approaches combining economics, politics, geopolitics, law, or sociology as long as they open a new perspective on the theme of this workshop.

The IMF and the Future of International Monetary and Financial Cooperation

Ministry of Economy and Finance, Rabat

By Edwin M. Truman, Non-Resident Senior Fellow, Peterson Institute for International Economics

For almost 75 years, the International Monetary Fund has been at the center of the post-World War international monetary system. The institution has evolved as the global economy has been transformed politically and economically. As with other international institutions, the IMF and its position in the center of the system are now under threat from potential neglect by the Trump administration and from competition from China as the principal rival to US domination of the Bretton Woods system. For example, the US Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin has stated that the IMF has adequate financial resources, implying that the review of IMF quotas that is to be completed by the end of 2019 need not add further to IMF resources, even though some of the IMF’s current resources will be unavailable after 2020. If IMF quotas are not increased, the governance of the IMF will remain static, frustrating the dynamic emerging market economies.

Bayesian Estimation of the Storage Model using Information on Quantities

OCP Policy Center, Rabat

In this presentation, Mr. Christophe Gouel will discuss his paper entitled “Bayesian Estimation of the Storage Model using Information on Quantities”. This paper presents a new strategy to estimate the rational expectations storage model. It uses information on prices and quantities – consumption and production – in contrast to previous approaches which use only prices. This additional information allows to estimate a model with elastic supply, and to identify parameters such as supply and demand elasticities, which are left unidentified when using prices alone. The estimation relies on the Bayesian methods popularized in the literature on the estimation of DSGE models. It is carried out on a market representing the caloric aggregate of the four basic staples – maize, rice, soybeans, and wheat – from 1961 to 2006. The results show that to be consistent with the observed volatility of consumption, production, and price, elasticities have to be in the lower ranges of the elasticities in the literature, a result consistent, according to the authors, with recent instrumental variable estimations on the same sample.
