La importancia política de Elizabeth Warren

WASHINGTON, D.C. – La reforma financiera en los Estados Unidos y a escala mundial está en el aire. Los problemas que nos provocaron la terrible crisis del período 2007-08 no están resueltos. En realidad, algunas deficiencias subyacentes son peores ahora que hace un decenio, incluido el problema de los megabancos “demasiado grandes para quebrar”.

Europa está retrocediendo en materia de reforma financiera: sus autoridades están demasiado centradas en mantener unida la zona del euro. En los EE.UU., no habrá una nueva legislación con el Congreso actual... y probablemente durante mucho tiempo por venir. La Ley Dodd-Frank, de 2010, podría resultar un marco para una reglamentación eficaz o ser sólo un conjunto de promesas vacías. Hasta ahora, la aplicación ha sido escasa.

La aplicación depende de los reguladores: algunos de ellos son muy buenos, mientras que otros están a merced de los grandes bancos de Wall Street. Las cuestiones son muy detalladas y técnicas y el grupo de presión financiero ha desplegado un pequeño ejército de expertos muy bien pagados para que lleven a cabo una misión de retraso, dilución y distracción. Ese proceso está aún sujeto a una revisión política, pero muchos políticos se dejan enredar fácilmente cuando la conversación entra en demasiadas honduras de detalle.

    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. 
    • But moving beyond Xi's anti-corruption purge to build robust and lasting anti-graft institutions will not be easy, owing to enduring opportunities for bureaucratic capture.

    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.
