    G-20 leaders need to forcefully address the complications created by this bifurcation

    Dear all,

    How should I understand the underlined?

    Thanks in advance.

    The global economic recovery is proceeding on twin tracks. Advanced economies face a tepid and uncertain recovery while emerging markets experience red-hot growth and try to cope with the risks of asset market bubbles and rising inflation. G-20 leaders need to forcefully address the complications created by this bifurcation of growth prospects and required policies. Otherwise, we are in for a train wreck.

    There are two different conditions here. One in emerging markets and the other in the "advanced" economies. The leaders have to make policies that address the concerns for each while not causing damage to either.

    "Bifurcation" is just a fancy word for something being split into two.

    And not only is it just a fancy word, it's just wrong. In this context he's talking about a knot.
