法兰克福——在2008—2009金融危机顶峰时期,人们都以为西方银行要卷起海外股份回国了,金融市场要陷入各回各家之局了。但是,德意志银行研究所的一份最新报告显示,银行跨国业务(不管是直接业务还是通过分行和子公司进行的业务)大体上已经企稳了。

在危机中,传统私人部门贷款等资本密集型领域的银行活动积极度下降得最为厉害。其中又以贷向非金融企业的贷款受创最重,而家庭贷款——传统上这一领域国际化程度较低——则依然活跃。

银行活动积极度的下降部分要归因于外国公债持有量相对私人债务的上升。危机前,银行通常是外国国债的净卖方,但在2008—2009年却在大举买入。2010年,随着欧洲主权债务危机开始发酵,银行对公债的兴趣再次减退。

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • In the first year of his presidency, Donald Trump has consistently sold out the blue-collar, socially conservative whites who brought him to power, while pursuing policies to enrich his fellow plutocrats. 

    • Sooner or later, Trump's core supporters will wake up to this fact, so it is worth asking how far he might go to keep them on his side.

    The Man Who Didn’t Save the World

    A Saudi prince has been revealed to be the buyer of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," for which he spent $450.3 million. Had he given the money to the poor, as the subject of the painting instructed another rich man, he could have restored eyesight to nine million people, or enabled 13 million families to grow 50% more food.

    Two Myths About Automation

    While many people believe that technological progress and job destruction are accelerating dramatically, there is no evidence of either trend. In reality, total factor productivity, the best summary measure of the pace of technical change, has been stagnating since 2005 in the US and across the advanced-country world.

    The Hungarian Government’s Failed Campaign of Lies

    The Hungarian government has released the results of its "national consultation" on what it calls the "Soros Plan" to flood the country with Muslim migrants and refugees. But no such plan exists, only a taxpayer-funded propaganda campaign to help a corrupt administration deflect attention from its failure to fulfill Hungarians’ aspirations.
