中国的最新五年规划

坎布里奇—上个月我在北京,中国政府发布了其第13个五年规划的预览纲要。这是一份重要的文件,可以帮助我们理解2016—2020年中国的走向。但中国的五年规划已不再是从前的五年规划。

中国经济已不再是我30多年前第一次访问这里时的国家所有和国家管理制度。当时没有民营企业,只有政府或国有企业才能合法雇用员工。如今,中国只有20%的工人为国有企业工作。其余部分为充满活力的分散的民营企业。美国跨国公司和其他外国企业也是中国经济图景中的重要部分。

因此,五年规划已不再是工业扩张的详细蓝图;相反,它说明了中国领导层希望在政府总体指导下实现什么目标。其目的是改善总体生活水平——实现略强的增长,提高消费占GDP之比,并改善空气和水质量——其手段是西方式货币和财政政策、国家融资的基础设施开发以及环境和其他监管改革相结合。

    Angela Merkel’s Endgame?

    The collapse of coalition negotiations has left German Chancellor Angela Merkel facing a stark choice between forming a minority government or calling for a new election. But would a minority government necessarily be as bad as Germans have traditionally thought?

    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.

    The Platform Economy

    While developed countries in Europe, North America, and Asia are rapidly aging, emerging economies are predominantly youthful. Nigerian, Indonesian, and Vietnamese young people will shape global work trends at an increasingly rapid pace, bringing to bear their experience in dynamic informal markets on a tech-enabled gig economy.

    Profiles in Discouragement

    One day, the United States will turn the page on Donald Trump. But, as Americans prepare to observe their Thanksgiving holiday, they should reflect that their country's culture and global standing will never recover fully from the wounds that his presidency is inflicting on them.

    How Women Shape Coups

    In Zimbabwe, as in all coups, much behind-the-scenes plotting continues to take place in the aftermath of the military's overthrow of President Robert Mugabe. But who the eventual winners and losers are may depend, among other things, on the gender of the plotters.

    The Abnormality of Oil

    At the 2017 Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, the consensus among industry executives was that oil prices will still be around $60 per barrel in November 2018. But there is evidence to suggest that the uptick in global growth and developments in Saudi Arabia will push the price as high as $80 in the meantime.

    The Saudi Prince’s Dangerous War Games

    Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is working hard to consolidate power and establish his country as the Middle East’s only hegemon. But his efforts – which include an attempt to trigger a war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon – increasingly look like the work of an immature gambler.
