中国共产资本主义的矛盾

伯克利—最近,上海和深圳股市暴跌对中国共产党构成了独特的考验。只要市场保持升势,世界最大最强的共产党掌控有力的资本主义式发展这一矛盾就只会引起学者和老派马克思主义者的困惑。只要中共精英及其亲属、外国金融机构和一些中国小投资者(得益于保证金贷款)从股市中赚钱,就不会有人会去费心理解他们所哺育的怪物。

但如今,人们开始认识到中国股价不会永远上涨,而中共也开始了病急乱投医式的控制回调的措施。所有新股首发被叫停,许多交易被取消;央行也被要求帮助中国证券金融公司诱导投资者买入股票、稳定市场。事实上,就连中国主权财富基金也采取了行动。

但是,与其他资本主义经济不同,钱并非当局所能动用的唯一工具。在中国,如果经纪人建议你卖出股票,他们必须小心翼翼地避免成为造谣者,这样会受到官方惩罚。有消息说大宗卖出行为可能招致当局的调查。在中国,扰乱公共秩序和金融稳定是可能是严重罪名,而关于境外势力暗中破坏经济的阴谋论更是层出不穷。

    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.

    • Sławomir Sierakowski, Director of the Institute for Advanced Study in Warsaw interviews Adam Michnik, one of the intellectual architects of Solidarity and of the transition from communism in Central Europe, on Europe's illiberal turn.

    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.
