Africa’s stocks beckon, but there's a hitch - The Globe and Mail
Apr. 30 2013 | The Globe and Mail | DAVID BERMAN.

Mohamed El-Erian, best known as the chief executive of Pacific Investment Management Co. LLC, the $2-trillion (U.S.) asset manager, gushed over Africa in the latest issue of Foreign Policy.

He argued that the region is moving beyond its reputation as an operations base for multinational commodity producers and is now seeing economic diversification in the form of homegrown small-and medium-sized enterprises.

The World Bank, he noted, reckons that these firms add 20 per cent to Africa’s gross domestic product and generate some 50 per cent of new jobs in sub-Saharan Africa.

“These successful businesses are giving rise to internationally competitive companies, thereby providing access to global markets, new business models and technologies, and higher wages and salaries,” Mr. El-Erian said in the article.

It’s a whole new game, and the U.S. doesn’t like the rules
Nov. 11, 2010 | G & M | Chrystia_Freeland. Mohamed
El-Erian, CEO of bond giant Pimco, and a former IMF economist, describes
the problem: “National responsibilities are conflicting with global
responsibilities for both the US & China. That is the real problem
for the global economy.”...Poor countries are accustomed to being told
by outsiders (e.g. IMF) what they need to do to participate in the
global economy...What's different today is that the world’s dominant
economy & its rising one are the 2 countries whose domestic
priorities are causing the greatest disruption for the rest of the
world. Small countries are used to accommodating big ones. But big
countries are accustomed to setting the rules. El-Erian believes that
“we will be writing about this period as one of fundamental global
realignment.” A big part of that realignment is figuring out how to
balance national needs against global ones--doing this is hard if you
are used to determining the international rules of the game.
