即将到来的资本主义3.0

    剑桥--资本主义现在处于近百年来最严重的危机之中。严重的衰退、全球经济脱节以及世界上发达经济体金融部门实质上大量国有化已经深深地破坏了市场和国家之间的平衡。人们都在猜测新的平衡在哪里可以找到。

    那些预言资本主义灭亡的人必须面对一个重要的历史事实,那就是,资本主义具有几乎无限量的重新塑造自我的能力。的确,资本主义的可塑性是它克服几百年来周期性危机并且挺过了从马克思以来的抨击的原因。资本主义能否存活不是问题,它肯定可以。真正的问题是,世界各国领导人是否展示出必要的领导力,在我们从当前危机中脱身的时候把资本主义带入下一个阶段。

    在释放人类社会共同的经济能力上,资本主义无人可比。这就是为何从广义上说所有繁荣的社会都奉行资本主义。这些社会围绕私有财产而建立,并且允许市场在分配资源、决定经济奖赏上发挥重大作用。然而前提条件是,财产权利和市场都无法依赖自身运行。他们需要其他社会机构予以支持。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Rage Against the Elites

    • With the advantage of hindsight, four recent books bring to bear diverse perspectives on the West’s current populist moment. 
    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
