阿根廷利用和滥用凯恩斯理论

布宜诺斯艾利斯——众所周知,美国共和党总统尼克松曾于1971年公开表示“现在我们都是凯恩斯主义者。”阿根廷奉行庇隆主义的经济部长阿克塞尔·基奇洛夫现在和尼克松的看法如出一辙。他究竟是对是错?

基奇洛夫举世闻名因为他是阿根廷对抗所谓秃鹫基金的代表人物,这些基金以几美分的价格购入面值1美元的阿根廷债券,并试图勒索阿根廷全额支付。但是在加盟克里斯蒂娜·费尔南德斯·基什内尔总统的内阁前,基奇洛夫在阿根廷知识界闻名是因为一本名为回归凯恩斯主义的著作。

上周,在被阿根廷商界精英挤得水泄不通的金色宴会厅讲话时,基奇洛夫将政府政策解释为凯恩斯主义理论的现实应用。长达一小时的讲话关键点主要有两个。

    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.
