北京的“世界传媒新秩序”

自天安门大屠杀以来的30年间,中国的经济大幅成长,但是,与当年许多西方领袖和分析家的预测相反,中国政府对公民权利和新闻自由的尊重并未伴随经济一同提升。无国界记者组织近日发表报告指出,中国正积极建立世界传媒新秩序,对全球民主国家造成明显而立即的危险。

新闻自由是当年天安门广场上示威者的主要诉求之一,也受到中国宪法第35条明文保护,但中国国家机器和共产党依旧不断蔑视新闻自由。

在无国界记者组织的2019年世界新闻自由指数报告里,中国在180个国家中排名第177位,目前仍为全球监禁记者大国之一。“防火长城”是一个极度复杂的网路过滤系统,限制中国8.3亿网路用户中大多数人的网路浏览。中国共产党不但毫无疑虑向出版商和社群网络平台施压,让他们进行自我审查,还公然以“社会和谐”和“价值观相对性”等修辞,来抗拒世界人权宣言。

With rational decision-making having become all but impossible, any new political agreement that emerges is likely to be both temporary and deeply flawed.

    Could Ultra-Low Interest Rates Be Contractionary?

    Ernest Liu, et al.

    Although low interest rates have traditionally been viewed as positive for economic growth because they encourage businesses to invest in enhancing productivity, this may not be the case. Instead, Ernest Liu, Amir Sufi, and Atif Mian contend, extremely low rates may lead to slower growth by increasing market concentration and thus weakening firms' incentive to boost productivity.
