欧元会跌多少?

伦敦—美元几乎每天都在创造12年新高,而欧元则在通往低于美元平价的道路上越走越远。货币波动常常被称为最不可预测的金融变量;但最近的外汇市场似乎表明,这一次存在显而易见的解释,一个几乎所有经济学家和决策者都会接受并支持的解释。

比如,法国总统奥朗德热烈欢迎欧元贬值:“这让形势变得方便又清楚:一欧元等于一美元,” 他对业界人士说。但当形势“方便又清楚”时,投资者就应该质疑传统智慧了。强势美元和弱势欧元显然是2015年最流行的预测。因此,是否有可能汇率趋势已经处于超调阶段?

从某种角度,对近期欧元-美元波动的传统解释毫无疑问是正确的。主要驱动力显然是货币分化,美联储在收紧政策,而欧洲央行维持极低利率并启动量化宽松。但这一分化在多大程度上已经体现在价格中?答案取决于多少人或者不了解利差,或者不相信利差会大幅扩大。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
