增长的局面改变因素

伯克利—最近在圣彼得堡举行的G20财政会议确认了增长和紧缩之争已经结束——至少在当下是如此。随着欧洲的长期衰退和新兴市场的减速,对预算赤字的担忧已经让位给对增长的担忧。7月,IMF今年第二次下调全球增长预测。

日本和美国成为暗淡全球前景的亮点,但各有各的原因。在日本,首相安倍晋三同时抛出了激进的货币和财政扩张,并承诺改革劳动力市场、公司治理、监管和贸易。

在快速而大胆的刺激措施作用下,日本经济预计今年增长率为3%左右——为发达经济体中最高值之一——而日经指数在截至今年5月的半年中上涨了80%。如今,安倍放出信号将跟进一步采取严厉的结构性改革。若得偿所愿,那么他的政策将让日本焕然一新。

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.

    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.
