过去共产党中央计划抑制中国经济时,固定资产投资成为该政权促进经济发展的衡量标准。出产越多的钢材,越多混凝土灌注下去,越多原油从地下开采出来那么就越好。西方资本主义唯首是瞻的以消费为基础的经济,被当作一只纸老虎甩到了一边。

表面上什么都没有改变。中国继续沉迷于投资。2005年新建工厂和基础设施占到了国民生产总值的41%,占据了几乎一半的经济增长。此外,国家持续高水平的固定资产投资有其意义所在。建设道路、水管、地铁系统、通讯网络和电子厂是一个幅员辽阔、快速现代化的国家必须要做的。

但是共产党领导人认定在下一个十年,理发师、会计、卡拉OK女服务员、导游和电影导演将成为经济表现的新支柱。在投资增长放缓以及出口市场面临不可预测的商业循环和保护主义情绪的情况下,中国将越来越多地依赖消费来增加工作岗位和收入的增长,而服务业正是消费产生最多的产业。

    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.
