This analysis is conducted against a backdrop of a gradual domestic recovery, but still uncertain international context and remaining domestic vulnerabilities. Household debt is high and negative equity among young borrowers is prevalent. A substantial portion of households have a loan-to-value ratio above 100 percent. While bank capitalization has improved since the crisis, balance sheets have contracted, profitability is low, and banks remain significantly reliant on wholesale funding. Financial institutions also face challenges from the continuing low interest rate environment and slow credit growth.

Genre: Business & Economics

In this book input-output analysis is applied to the regional economy of The Netherlands. The re~ults are based on a publication of The Netherlands Central Bureau of Statistics: Regional Accounts 1960, The Hague, Staatsuitgeverij, 1968. Dr. Schilderinck and Mr. Sinner call special attention to the structure which are concealed in the cumulated primary costs of the final demand categories. Part I of the book deals particularly with a survey of this feature of input-output analysis. Part II starts with comparing the production structure of each industry in the eleven provinces of The Netherlands by means of semi-regional tables. Next, authors analyse the structure of the induced income resulting from a surplus or deficit of each industry on current final transactions per province. Thanks to its methodical elaboration the book is a valuable guide to those confronted with the problems of regional economic analysis. J. J. J.

War has ever exercised a great appeal on men's minds. Oscar Wilde's witticism notwithstanding this fascination cannot be attri buted simply to the wicked character of war. The demonic forces released by war have caught the artistic imagination, while sages have reflected on the enigmatic readiness of each new generation to wage war, despite the destruction, disillusion and exhaustion that war is known to bring in its train. If there never was a good war and a bad peace why did armed conflicts recur with such distressing regularity ? Was large-scale violence an intrinsic condition of Man? The answers given to such questions have differed widely: it has even been suggested that the states of war and peace are not as far removed from one another as is usually supposed. The causes of war and the interaction between war and society have long been the subject of philosophical enquiry and historical analysis. Accord ing to Thucydides no one was ever compelled to go to war; Cicero remarked how dumb were the laws in time of war, while Clausewitz's profound observation concerning the affinity between war and politics has become almost a commonplace. War being the severest test a society or state can experience historians have naturally been concerned to investigate their rela tionship.

The recent crisis and interest rate declines have put the financial sustainability of the Dutch occupational pension system under severe strain. The benefit-cutting measures have been received by the public as an unexpected and almost unknown option inherent in the pension contracts. Adding to the strain on the pension funds is an unexpected increment in the longevity of the Dutch population. The transparency and risk-sensitive framework of pension funds regulation has brought the question of the sustainability of the Dutch pension system.

This 2013 Article IV Consultation highlights that economic output in Aruba remains 12 percent below its pre-crisis level, with recovery slower than others in the Caribbean region. The non-oil current account (CA) balance, which mostly reflects developments in the tourism sector, has improved since mid-2000 reaching a balanced position in 2012. The overall CA balance, however, after being in surplus for years, showed volatilities in recent years reflecting oil-sector developments. In 2012, it recorded a surplus of 5 percent of GDP. In 2013, real output is projected to grow by 1¼ percent. Robust tourism growth and some pickup in consumption from projected deflation will support the subdued near-term recovery.
