Securing the Future of Emerging Economies

2014 International Writing Challenge on Economic IdeasAbout Emerging Countries and Their Competitiveness

Although emerging countries’ economic growth has been showing stunning performance with relatively high level of growth (compared to their developed countries counterparts), there are questions whether this growth will be sustainable. One of the main problems are institution-related. Institution’s utmost role is to reduce transaction cost (all costs those are related to searching and bureaucracy process). Efficient institutions can reduce transaction cost to the rate of stimulating the economic activities and productivity.

Considering its important role, institutions in emerging economies are considered to have these problems: ineffective and rigid bureaucracies, lack of transparency, lack of reliable information provision, high-rate of corruption and bribery, and so on. Those obstacles trap down emerging countries’ pursuit of sustainable and high-quality economic growth.

Thus, this essay competition is hoped to answer these lingering questions :

  •  What is going on with institutions in emerging countries?
  •  How should the institutions in emerging countries be?
  •  What can be done to realize that?
