危机中的跨国银行业务

伦敦——欧元区危机的威力终于显现出来了。我们已经投下了最重的赌注。各国政府和金融机构竭尽全力,试图在极其紧张的政治和经济约束中拿出一举解决问题的方案。方案的设计还有相当多的问题需要解决;其中如何实施便是一项重大挑战。

现在,欧元区领导人必须不仅要捍卫单一货币,而且还要捍卫欧洲金融一体化所带来的好处。世界上没有哪个地区比欧洲从跨国银行业务中获得更多的好处,如今,这些成就陷入了危机,各大欧洲银行集团本身也随之岌岌可危。

跨国银行所面临的威胁不仅来自因主权债务质量下降和增长前景转坏而恶化的资产负债表,也来自政策应对本身。眼下,人们已经接受了欧洲银行需要大笔新资本这一事实。但是,尽管新的欧洲银行监管局(European Banking Authority)当机立断,出台并协调所需要的措施,欧洲方案仍然需要将全欧洲的外国银行支行网络纳入考虑范围。

    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.
