创建增长连动式债券

在一年前的美洲峰会上,34个西半球国家领导人达成一致,建立一项由政府发行、支出依赖于国内生产总值的增长连动式债券。但是这一进程现在却几乎处于停滞状态。仅有一项与这种债券相关的主要提案还在讨论之中。这项提案来自于阿根廷。这样一个独一无二、并且能长期加强世界金融基建和提高经济效益的机会眼看就要悄悄溜走。

自1993年起,我就在我的著作《宏观市场》中提倡增长连动式债券。国内生产总值是衡量我们的经济制度成功与否最为全面的标准。增长连动债式券中最简单的一种形式就是一项长期的、根据发行国家的GDP比例定期支付红利的政府证券。

    Whither the Multilateral Trading System?

    The global economy today is dominated by three major players – China, the EU, and the US – with roughly equal trading volumes and limited incentive to fight for the rules-based global trading system. With cooperation unlikely, the world should prepare itself for the erosion of the World Trade Organization.

    The Globalization of Our Discontent

    Globalization, which was supposed to benefit developed and developing countries alike, is now reviled almost everywhere, as the political backlash in Europe and the US has shown. The challenge is to minimize the risk that the backlash will intensify, and that starts by understanding – and avoiding – past mistakes.

    A Better British Story

    Despite all of the doom and gloom over the United Kingdom's impending withdrawal from the European Union, key manufacturing indicators are at their highest levels in four years, and the mood for investment may be improving.

    The UK’s Multilateral Trade Future

    With Brexit looming, the UK has no choice but to redesign its future trading relationships. As a major producer of sophisticated components, its long-term trade strategy should focus on gaining deep and unfettered access to integrated cross-border supply chains – and that means adopting a multilateral approach.
