建立我们所需要的市场体系

维也纳——当前,在全球金融危机的背景下,我们面临的最大的挑战在于,我们无法控制它的复杂性和多样性。实际上局面几乎已经失控。各个国家对此而采取的应对政策不断作出调整。过去的一些惯用做法已经过时。对于这场波及全球范围的危机,各国政府都在临着新的挑战,社会和经济的发展究竟何去何从。

一切都起源于2007年夏天爆发的次贷危机,先是衍变为金融危机,而后导致经济萧条。老的问题还没有解决,新的问题接踵而至。食品能源的价格先涨后跌,仿佛是在坐过山车。全球气候变暖的问题日益突现。各国政局的不稳定也令人担忧。

目前,在希腊,拉托维亚,立陶宛等国出现了社会动荡,看来连欧盟的内部都出了问题。放眼全球,从墨西哥到印度尼西亚,乃至在中国,社会的张力随时可能断裂。最倒霉的是那些失去财富的大批无辜者,他们不是这场危机的始作俑者,而却只能默默地承受。普遍焦虑的情绪不断攀升。

    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.

    Rage Against the Elites

    • With the advantage of hindsight, four recent books bring to bear diverse perspectives on the West’s current populist moment. 
    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    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.
