中国的股市烟雾弹

发自罗马——上证券综合指数自去年六月以来已经出现超过40%的跌幅,而全球投资者对这场下跌的关注也日渐增加——这并不是因为他们有意趁暴跌抄底(中国的股票绝大多数还是由中国投资者持有)。相反,他们担心的是股价暴跌意味着中国的经济已经进入下行通道。而那些试图分辨中国经济未来的人则应该从其他地方去寻找可靠的线索。

当然,中国的增长速度已经显著放缓是事实,并有充足的理由相信,这种减速并非是暂时的。但所有这些原因基本上都跟股市没什么关系。

这种脱节状况其实已经相当明显,因为当前的股市价格竟然比2014年更高,而那年正是中国超过美国成为世界第一大经济体(按购买力平价计算)并催生了乐观预期的一年。但当时似乎并没有什么观察家认识到中国的经济已经放缓。据官方统计,1980~2010年间的增速平均为10%,而在2012~2014年间则下降到7-8%。

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • In the first year of his presidency, Donald Trump has consistently sold out the blue-collar, socially conservative whites who brought him to power, while pursuing policies to enrich his fellow plutocrats. 

    • Sooner or later, Trump's core supporters will wake up to this fact, so it is worth asking how far he might go to keep them on his side.

    The Man Who Didn’t Save the World

    A Saudi prince has been revealed to be the buyer of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," for which he spent $450.3 million. Had he given the money to the poor, as the subject of the painting instructed another rich man, he could have restored eyesight to nine million people, or enabled 13 million families to grow 50% more food.

    Two Myths About Automation

    While many people believe that technological progress and job destruction are accelerating dramatically, there is no evidence of either trend. In reality, total factor productivity, the best summary measure of the pace of technical change, has been stagnating since 2005 in the US and across the advanced-country world.

    The Hungarian Government’s Failed Campaign of Lies

    The Hungarian government has released the results of its "national consultation" on what it calls the "Soros Plan" to flood the country with Muslim migrants and refugees. But no such plan exists, only a taxpayer-funded propaganda campaign to help a corrupt administration deflect attention from its failure to fulfill Hungarians’ aspirations.
