走向全球的中国公司

纽约——中国经济正在迈出又一大步:其制造部门的一部分正在朝增值链的高端转移,并在走出国门。中国挑战如今已成为全球挑战。

个中原因不难看穿。中国沿海省份(该国大部分制造和服务产品的生产和外国直接投资坐落于此)的生产成本(工资、租金、土地、资本等)已出现快速上升。去年一年,12个沿海省份(包括北京)的最低工资平均上升了21%。

与此同时,人民币也在升值,这使得国内出口导向产品和服务的生产变得更贵了。这绝非小事,特别是对于劳动密集型活动(从玩具制造到数据输入服务)来说尤其如此,不管是外国跨国公司(占中国出口的二分之一强)分公司还是国内公司,都在失去国际市场上的竞争力。

  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.

  5. Harvard’s Jeffrey Frankel Measures the GOP’s Tax Plan

    Jeffrey Frankel, a professor at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and a former member of President Bill Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisers, outlines the five criteria he uses to judge the efficacy of tax reform efforts. And in his view, the US Republicans’ most recent offering fails miserably.

    The Holy Grail of Genetic Engineering

    CRISPR-Cas – a gene-editing technique that is far more precise and efficient than any that has come before it – is poised to change the world. But ensuring that those changes are positive – helping to fight tumors and mosquito-borne illnesses, for example – will require scientists to apply the utmost caution.
