中国将增长得多快?

北京—在市场经济改革以来的35年中,中国的平均增长率高达9.8%——这是前所未有的爆炸式增长。但有迹象表明中国奇迹正在走向终点——或者至少经济增长正在放缓。自2010年一季度以来,中国的增长率一直在下降。2014年三季度,经济增长率降到了相对较低的7.3%。

随着2014年临近尾声,中国的经济增长可能将继续面临强劲的逆风,至少与前几十年相比是如此。2015年,决策者将制定中国的十三五规划,他们将面临一个基本问题:可以预期中国增长得多快?

在制定一国GDP目标时,首先要明白经济的潜在增长率,即假设内部和外部条件有利、未来增长稳定性与可持续性不会受到威胁的情况下的最快扩张速度。亚当·斯密在《国富论》中论证了经济增长取决于劳动生产率的改善,而今天劳动生产率的改善要么来自技术创新,要么来自产业升级(将产能重新配置给更高附加值的新部门)。

    A Tax Plan that’s All Stuffing?

    US President Donald Trump has set a Christmas deadline for enacting the Republican tax plan, and economic observers are virtually unanimous in judging it a turkey. A scheme that squeezes the middle class and blows out the fiscal and current-account deficits may pass, but it will never fly.

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls. 
    • But moving beyond Xi's anti-corruption purge to build robust and lasting anti-graft institutions will not be easy, owing to enduring opportunities for bureaucratic capture.

    The Dangers of Nuclear Bombast

    US President Donald Trump has refused to recertify the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, an agreement that he once predicted would "lead to a nuclear holocaust." Unfortunately, by creating more perverse incentives for hostile regimes to pursue nuclear armaments at all costs, Trump has made the nightmare scenario he fears even more likely.

    Insider Interview

    • With right-wing populists ascendant in Poland and Hungary, and gaining ground elsewhere in the European Union, politics in some parts of the West looks increasingly like politics in Russia.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.
