中国的货币政策选择

上海—近几年来,中国经济的运行轨迹不可不谓引人注目:从打破纪录的增长发动机沦为了重大全球风险,至少在某些人眼里是如此。事实上,今年GDP增长几乎肯定无法达到当局7%的目标,目前,全世界都在密切关注危机和急剧减速的信号。中国是如何走到这一步的?它能够让经济增长重回正轨吗?

中国增长不可持续已经有一段时间了。2008年,为了应对全球金融危机,中国实施了有欠审慎的固定资产投资刺激计划,保持了两年9%的GDP增长。但是,2011年后,刺激转变为宏观经济紧缩,导致投资增长从30%以上的名义增长率下降到最近的10%左右。这阻止了产能和资源的充分利用,也解释了为何GDP增长不可能超过7%。

产能过剩和增长下降是互相强化的。不仅产能过剩对增长具有消极影响,也许更重要的是,急剧下降的增长也会导致某些行业的大规模冗余(特别是资源业、重工业和化工业)。

    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.
