Football in the time of protest

Nauro F Campos 13 June 2014

Football is actually coming home. Brazil is the spiritual home of the ‘beautiful game’. It is the only country to have competed in all 20 World Cup tournaments, it has won the tournament a record five times, and it is the only country to have won the tournament ‘away’ (Ponzo and Scoppa 2014).1 Brazilians worship football. As in all previous World Cups, the country will stop when the Seleção plays. Unlike all other Cups, however, this time there may be protests.

How to address inequality

Jeffrey Frankel 29 April 2014

a

A

Inequality has received a lot of attention lately, particularly in two arenas where it had not previously received as much: American public debate and the International Monetary Fund. A major driver is the observation in the US that income inequality has now returned to the extreme levels of the Gilded Age (Piketty 2014).

The limits to partial banking unions: A political economy approach

Octavia Foarta 02 February 2014

a

A

A key concern of policymakers following the Eurozone banking crises has been how to design common rules for public interventions in the banking sector. Recent proposals aim at creating a banking union to complement the Eurozone monetary union, and reduce the risk of contagion generated by cross-border spillovers from bank failures (Bolton and Jeanne 2013). The presence of spillovers suggests that a banking union may be welfare-improving for all member countries.
