Catatan tentang koordinasi keuangan global

Minggu lalu Sarkozy mengimbau negara-negara maju untuk merombak sistem keuangan dunia; tanggapan Amerika masih menunggu. Terlepas dari motivasinya, dia pemimpin negara maju pertama yang menyadari bahwa krisis kali ini bukan krisis biasa, sehingga memerlukan rethinking sistem moneter. Seperti apa proposal para politisi Eropa dan Amerika untuk memperbaiki sistem finansial global?

Ini menjadi waiting game yang panjang.  Sambil menunggu apa yang bakal terjadi, berikut penggalan kutipan sebuah media cetak tentang koordinasi keuangan global.

” … As for the idea of a new global regulator, anything that improves information flow and taking of decisions at the appropriate level is welcome. Yet the current crisis, while undoubtedly global in nature, did not arise from a failure of co-ordination. It arose because regulators and policymakers in a variety of countries – including the UK – made similar mistakes. They allowed credit growth and housing booms to spin out of hand and they failed to understand the risk from toxic derivatives.

Globalising regulation would not by and of itself have stopped the Northern Rock fiasco, saved Lehman Brothers, nor prevented banking systems across the world from needing wholesale government interventions.

Although the crisis is still with us, it is still important to plan for what will come next. The world needs a thorough look at how global finance is managed. But there is little point in rushing. Any credible plan will need US support, which means a new administration must be in place. It must include the developing world both as a subject and as a participant. This is a topic to which we and others shall return. It is an important discussion that will require deep thought and prolonged preparation, not easy slogans and old ideas.”
