In 2018, the developing economies were experiencing a capital outﬂ ow due to toughening, by the USA, of its monetary policy, as well as the trade war between China and the United States. The most vulnerable ones turned out to be Argentina and Turkey, two countries that had accumulated quite a few domestic problems. In spite of the somewhat improved outlooks in early 2019, some signiﬁcant risks of destabilization of the existing economic situation are still there. The strongest threats are associated with the situation in China: its domestic problems have the potential of triggering a new global economic crisis.
