楼市背后的凯恩斯与哈耶克之争

香港—中国一线城市房地产价格正在暴涨,导致对经济前景针锋相对的预测:即将来临的泡沫破裂还是可以预见的宏观经济峰回路转?中国红得发紫的房地产市场究竟发生了什么?

国家统计局上周公布,70大中城市新建商品房价格同比增长超过20%的城市有10个,其中一线城市上海和深圳涨幅超过了37%,而二线城市厦门和合肥涨幅超过了40%。

长景经济顾问公司(Longview Economics)的克里斯·沃特林(Chris Watling)将当前的中国房地产市场比作 1637年见顶的荷兰郁金香狂热。他特别指出,深圳楼价自2015年初以来上涨了76%,使得当地典型住宅价格已高达800,000美元,仅比硅谷平均房价略低。他认为,这也许是市场崩溃前的最后疯狂。

    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

    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.
