Is the global crisis behind us? The divergent development of major emerging countries, Europe and the United States reminds us that despite a strong tendency for unification during the past two decades, despite our growing interdependence, the world economy is still highly fragmented. Under the circumstance, it doesn't make sense to draw a general picture without taking a closer look at these differences: between emerging and advanced countries, between the United States and Europe, and even within Europe itself.
Le monde est-il sorti de la crise? Les trajectoires divergentes des grands émergents, de l'Europe et des Etats-Unis rappellent qu'en dépit du puissant courant d'unification qui l'anime depuis une vingtaine d'années, en dépit aussi d'une interdépendance croissante, l'économie mondiale reste morcelée. Impossible, dans ces conditions, de tracer un tableau d'ensemble sans s'intéresser au jeu des différences entre les émergents et les autres, les Etats-Unis et l'Europe, et au sein même de l'Europe.
