资本流之谜

伊萨卡—最近几个月以来,新兴经济体经历了资本流的鞭挞。美联储可能“逐步减少”其量化宽松(QE)等迹象让投资者争相降低新兴市场风险敞口,导致新兴市场货币大幅贬值、股价崩盘。如今“逐渐减少”被叫停,一些新兴市场又出现了资本回流。但是,新兴经济体对于下一步会发生什么缺少控制力和影响力,它们仍在苦苦寻找如何保护自己免受美联储政策反复的冲击。

美联储一开始暗示其意图逐渐减少QE时,一些新兴经济体的决策者怨声载道,但发达经济体官员指出他们经常这样大声抱怨。毕竟,一开始他们反对如今他们拼命要保留的政策。

但新兴市场决策者的批评并不自相矛盾;不论是一开始还是现在,他们抱怨的核心问题是波动。他们已经试图建立起防御工事抵御具有潜在破坏效应的发达国家货币政策——积累外汇储备、实施资本管制。如今,他们要求中央银行通过(比如)提高短期贷款税来确保稳定。

    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.
