去风险再临

纽约—在金融市场最新一波动荡发生前,大量风险资产(包括股票、政府债券和商品)自去年夏天以来一直在反弹。但全世界的经济增长仍保持停滞状态,尽管风险厌恶程度和波动性在下降而资产价格在上升。如今,全球经济要消停了。

与停滞和斗争了二十年的日本不得不祭出安倍经济学来避免五重底衰退。在英国,自去年夏天开始的争论便集中于三重底衰退。大部分欧元区国家仍陷在严重的衰退中,如今已从外围蔓延至核心。即使在美国,经济表现也毫无亮点,过去几个季度的增长率一直徘徊在1.5%。

而如今,世界经济的宠儿新兴市场也无法扭转颓势了。据IMF的数据,中国年GDP增长已从2010年的10%放缓至8%;与此同时,印度增长率从11.2%降至5.7%。俄罗斯、巴西和南非以3%左右的速度增长,其他新兴市场也好不到哪里去。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
