Maintaining today’s global imbalances would help to overcome the major disproportion of our times – income gap between developed and developing countries. This gap waswidening for 500 years and only now, in the recent 50 years, there are some signs that this gap is starting to decrease. The chances to close this gap sooner rather than later would be better, if the West would go into debt, allowing developing countries to have trade surpluses that would help them develop faster. Previously, in 16-20th century, it was the West that was developing faster, accumulating surpluses in trade with -the rest- andusing these surpluses to buy assets in developing countries, while -the rest- were going into debt. Now it is time for -the rest- to accumulate assets and for the West to go into debt.
