Waiting game begins after urgent Turkish top-level economy meeting

Stanley Fischer, a former Federal Reserve vice chairman who was also number two at the International Monetary Fund (IMF), said on Wednesday that emerging markets would have to act quickly in the wake of the dollar rise, as it happened much faster than he had anticipated.

The Institute for International Finance had said Ukraine, China, Argentina, South Africa and Turkey were the top five most vulnerable to changes in risk appetite. Argentina has already been forced to go to the IMF for help this week.

With the dollar index hitting fresh highs since late 2017, Fischer said that in order to stabilise local currencies in vulnerable countries, a lot of people were required to do the right thing at the right time and the right time was pretty soon for many of them.  

The same day Fischer spoke about the urgency of the situation, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan gathered his economy officials to discuss the falling lira. The participants at the critical meeting included the Turkish central bank governors, who have been blamed for being inactive on monetary policy to rein in the lira and inflation, advisors Cemil Ertem and Yigit Bulut, who have been feeding the president with unorthodox economic policies, and Minister Mehmet Simsek, who happens to be Merrill Lynch’s former Turkey economist and the most market friendly face in the top ranks.

Research & Commentary: Study Details the Positive Impact of Chile's National School Choice Model

, Author Mariano Narodowski, professor of Education at Universidad Torcuato Di Tella in Buenos Aires, Argentina, discusses the country’s free school choice program, where parents are given a voucher to send their children to any public or private school that meet the state’s regulatory criteria. These schools “are given autonomy for pedagogic and administrative decision making, and they compete for a share of total enrollments.”

Under this system, Chile scored higher than any other Latin American country on the latest round of the PISA exam in 2015. Inaugurated in 2000, PISA tests 15-year-olds in mathematics, reading, and science every three years. Since the first examination in 2000, Chile’s math scores have jumped from 384 to 423, science scores from 415 to 447, and reading scores from 410 to 459. Chile’s average score of 443 points on PISA 2015 dwarfed its nearest Latin America competitors, Costa Rica and Mexico, which both averaged 416.

Chile’s success on PISA is reinforced by its performance on other examinations. As Narodowski notes, “in the 1997 United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) assessment of students, Chile ranked third—behind Cuba and Argentina—but was ranked first in the latest assessment of Latin American and Caribbean countries. According to the 1999, 2003, and 2011 Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) assessments, Chile was the only Latin American country to participate, and between 1999 and 2011, improved its performance, moving closer to the overall average and achieving meaningfully better results than other countries with similar economic development.”
