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。

  3. Murdoch's Last Stand?

    Rupert Murdoch’s sale of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney for $66 billion may mark the end of the media mogul’s career, which will long be remembered for its corrosive effect on democratic discourse on both sides of the Atlantic. 

    From enabling the rise of Donald Trump to hacking the telephone of a murdered British schoolgirl, Murdoch’s media empire has staked its success on stoking populist rage.

    The Dangerous Delusion of Price Stability

    Since the hyperinflation of the 1970s, which central banks were right to combat by whatever means necessary, maintaining positive but low inflation has become a monetary-policy obsession. But, because the world economy has changed dramatically since then, central bankers have started to miss the monetary-policy forest for the trees.
