Emerging economies prosper as the west muddles throughRight now, the smart money is sitting on the sidelines. This is what Diane Brady, senior editor and content chief of Bloomberg Businessweek, suggested at a panel discussion at APEC earlier this month. The other speakers didn’t entirely disagree, especially where Europe is concerned, but several suggested that the emerging markets are where smart money will be in the future. The Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance of New Zealand, Bill English, suggested that his country was a barometer for broader currents because it has such a small economy.

Obama at APEC: America is still welcomeAlthough his remarks at the recent APEC CEO conference in Hawaii earlier this month were mostly serious, US President Barack Obama opened with a joke. “This is my birthplace, I know that was contested for a while,” he said. “I can show you the hospital if you’d like.” That matter dispensed with he moved to weightier topics.

The Future. Redefined.Michael Oreskes, a senior editor at the Associated Press, spends most of his time on the shores of the Atlantic but at APEC’s opening session today he said that being on the Pacific was a big relief. “The mood is so much better here.” It was only partly a joke. In Europe and the US the euro crisis dominates, but at APEC the conversation is all about growth.
