减速增长再创改革红利

香港——三十多年来,中国以超过10%的GDP增长率快速发展。然而,在这令人赞叹的经济增长成绩背后,随之而来的是诸多经济、社会、环境成本和挑战,正如前总理温家宝准确的描述——“不稳定、不平衡、不协调、不可持续”。现在,中国必须做出选择:以出口投资为驱动的旧的经济增长模式,还是可持续的经济增长新秩序。

廉价信贷和错误的激励机制(例如提拔对GDP增长贡献最大的官员等)引发大规模的重复投资,进而导致制造业和基础设施行业的产能过剩。这种模式不仅效率低下,还引导政府资源流向阻碍中国社会发展的无效投资。

有鉴于此,中国领导人已决定停止将GDP增长作为评价官员政绩的主要标准。实际上,将于2015年结束的“十二五”规划旨在实现中国经济向以质量和创新为基础的可持续的新增长模式转型,并接受在转型期间GDP增长率降至7%的可能性。

    Angela Merkel’s Endgame?

    The collapse of coalition negotiations has left German Chancellor Angela Merkel facing a stark choice between forming a minority government or calling for a new election. But would a minority government necessarily be as bad as Germans have traditionally thought?

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.

    The Platform Economy

    While developed countries in Europe, North America, and Asia are rapidly aging, emerging economies are predominantly youthful. Nigerian, Indonesian, and Vietnamese young people will shape global work trends at an increasingly rapid pace, bringing to bear their experience in dynamic informal markets on a tech-enabled gig economy.

    Profiles in Discouragement

    One day, the United States will turn the page on Donald Trump. But, as Americans prepare to observe their Thanksgiving holiday, they should reflect that their country's culture and global standing will never recover fully from the wounds that his presidency is inflicting on them.

    How Women Shape Coups

    In Zimbabwe, as in all coups, much behind-the-scenes plotting continues to take place in the aftermath of the military's overthrow of President Robert Mugabe. But who the eventual winners and losers are may depend, among other things, on the gender of the plotters.

    The Abnormality of Oil

    At the 2017 Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, the consensus among industry executives was that oil prices will still be around $60 per barrel in November 2018. But there is evidence to suggest that the uptick in global growth and developments in Saudi Arabia will push the price as high as $80 in the meantime.

    The Saudi Prince’s Dangerous War Games

    Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is working hard to consolidate power and establish his country as the Middle East’s only hegemon. But his efforts – which include an attempt to trigger a war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon – increasingly look like the work of an immature gambler.
