This monthly webcast (upgraded from a quarterly to a monthly webcast) provides the latest insights from TCB’s Economics Team on the growth performance of major emerging markets, especially the outlook for China, India, Brazil and Mexico as well as Southeast Asia.

As a special topic, this month’s Economics Watch will explore the many challenges and possible impact on the emerging markets on both their financial stability and real economic growth, when the Federal Reserve Bank eventual tightens its monetary policy. The anticipation of the Federal Reserve Bank’s tapering back its quantitative easing operations has already sent the emerging economies’ financial markets rattled, with declines in stock prices, rise in inflationary pressures, and sharply devaluation in their currencies. As the U.S. economy gradually strengthens the Federal Reserve continues the tapering process, how will it affect the emerging markets, which in large had become addicted to central banks propping up growth with liquidity?
