Transcript: Part I: The Middle-Income-Trap developing countries enjoy high comparative advantages in manufacturing due to cheap labour as the national income increases and industrialization advances, wages rise country loses competitiveness due to rising wages but somehow can't catch up with rich countries Reasons? Often cited: lack of human capital; insufficient infrastructure; unstable institutions, politics, administration Positive outlook for Malaysia: per capita growth at 4% (average) since 2010 (3.5% for seven yrs was benchmark in our lecture) Malaysia 2020 programme aims for high-income-status by 2020 At 4% per capita growth: ~13.300$/capita in 2020 (comparable to Poland) Summary: Malaysia is on the right trajectory to escape the middle-income-trap! Which measures need to be taken, though? "Policy Brief: Law and Development of Middle-Income-Countries" World Bank: Middle-income countries at a glance The World Bank classifies countries with a 2012 GNI per capita between $1,035 and $12,616 as middle-income. Currently, there are 108 MICs In 2012, MICs housed roughly 4.9 billion of the world’s 7 billion people, including 73% of the world’s poor Of 101 middle-income economies in 1960, only 13 became high income by 2008 MICs are geographically dispersed, with a particularly high concentration in East Asia, Latin America, and Central and Eastern Europe Therefor our recommendations to Malaysia: Now low cost manufacturing has been already outsourced. Stratfor identifies the "Post-China 16" as successors HDB: giving people a stake in society -> political stability Example: China Once called "the workshop of the world" Rising wages, new middle-class and budding institutions (social security etc.) emerge Source: World Bank Group World Development Indicators Do you agree? If not, why? Thank you for your attention! Is Malaysia a victim of the Middle-Income-Trap? Rise of the secondary sector due to low wages MIT-danger also high: rising costs for geriatric care, health etc. share of high-tech-exports has decreased FDI very low (~1% of GDP) + stable inflation + credible monetary and fiscal policy + sound financial/macroprudential measures World Bank data (2013): GDP (current US$) $312.4 billion 2013 Population (Total) 29.72 million 2013 GDP/capita (current US$) 10,511 classification upper-middle-income the MIT is usually identified when growth slows down before high-income-status has been achieved Content: What is the Middle-Income-Trap (MIT)? How did Singapore manage to avoid the MIT and become a high-income-country? Is Malaysia in the Middle-Income-Trap? Which policies from Singapore can be applied to Malaysia? social indicators are developing well: access to sanitation: both rural and urban constantly high at 96% per capita health exp. (at PPP) tripled between 1995 and 2012 life expectancy increased steadily from 71 yrs (1990) to 75 yrs (2012) high HDI (0.773) and growing - skill-mismatches as largest problem - educational reforms on track, but increasing difficulty: ever increasing performance during budget-cuts (setting priorities) - brain-drain - quality control in private universities - educational attainment at basic and secondary level In Conclusion: which policies are promising to copy? - Creating middle-class people through property: HDB for Malaysia? -> prevent concentration of best workers in few areas - Increasing cooperation between universities and companies: addresses skill-mismatches and improves R&D impact on local economy by better allocation of educational resources -> a cost-effective measure in times of shrinking budgets Quality of life: attract talent from other countries Malaysia's way out of the Middle-Income-Trap Policy recommendations and best practices from Singapore by Park Eun-Hong and Philip Hanspach - giving people a stake in society like Singapore with HDB (tackles brain-drain) - prioritizing strategic industries and promote related tertiary education (like SG with biotech, financial etc.) to address skill mismatch -... ... ... ... - Increase the global outreach of Malaysian economy -> in times of difficult market situations in developed countries, foreign investors can be "locked-in" to Malaysia - Intelligent urban planning (esp. traffic reduction, security) is needed to make Malaysian cities attractive to foreign specialists no definition of MIC besides wealth because the group is extremely diverse! High tech goods: keeping up with chain of manufacturing let's have a look at some other development indicators: Growth is slowing down, yet China is not a rich country. The Middle-Income-Trap has struck. How did Singapore become rich? Low wage jobs will be outsourced Most countries fail to climb up the technological ladder negative trend, much higher recovery in 2010 should have been expected! IMF (country report no.14/80): Visualization: Examplified by the rise of net national income in China since 1990: education: high-standard secondary schools, good English knowledge of workforce
