中国的干预教训

北京—今年夏天以来,中国股市成为一个热门话题。急速上涨变成大崩盘,引发了全球股市大甩卖。现在的问题是如何防止进一步波动。

要回答这个问题,需要理解中国如何走到今天这一步。多年来,在当局的鼓励(或至少是默许)下,中国证券公司卯足了劲用各种新奇金融工具和做法推高指数,其唯一的目的是在股价上涨中收获资本利得(中国很少派发股息)。结果,在多年的熊市后,上证指数在不到七个月的时间里飙升100%度,从2014年11月的2,505点涨到今年6月的5,178点——这一水平是中国经济基本面无法支撑的。

助力这波涨势的最重要的工具是保证金交易。保证金交易让投资者大量借钱购买股票。据美国银行策略师崔伟的估计,7.5万亿元人民币的股票头寸来自保证金,“相当于A股市值的13%和流通市值的34%。”

    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.

    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.

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.
