什么让希腊如此特殊?

布鲁塞尔—欧元危机似乎已经大致结束了。风险溢价在全面下降,两个国家——爱尔兰和葡萄牙——已经退出了调整计划。现在它们已经能够在市场上为自己融资,它们的经济似乎也已重新开始增长。

相反,希腊在实现调整计划目标方面仍然存在问题,并且似乎陷入了关于新一轮多边融资计划的没完没了的谈判。问题总结起来就是两个字:出口(或者说是出口增长乏力)。

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent.

    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.
