“半个面包”增长

米兰—在经济增长萎靡的时期,全球各国都在尝试构思和实施刺激和维持复苏的战略。这里的关键词是战略:要想成功,决策者必须保证这些措施能开放经济、提振公共投资、加强宏观经济稳定、增加市场恢复力、资源配置激励以合理且完整的方案实施。只追求其中几个目标所产生的结果会大大下降。

中国就是一个绝佳的例子。1978年邓小平启动“改革开放”政策之前,中国公共部门投资相对较高。但中央计划经济缺少市场激励,也基本对全球经济的主要商品、投资和技术市场封闭。结果,公共投资回报十分平庸,中国经济表现也十分低下。

中国的经济转型起始于20世纪80年代在农业部门中引入市场激励。随后是逐渐向全球经济开放的过程,这一过程在20世纪90年代有所加速。经济增长大踏步向前,公共投资回报也大幅上升,改革是时候不久年GDP增长率就达到了9%以上。

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    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. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.

    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.
