用欧元债券平息恐慌

圣地亚哥——欧元债券的诞生很可能已经不远了。这个用来解决欧洲金融危机的办法曾经被嗤之以鼻,现在摇身一变,成了挽救欧元唯一可靠的方法。欧洲央行的国债买入计划并未使希腊、爱尔兰和葡萄牙免于救援。西班牙和意大利也一样。

但西班牙和意大利太大了,没人救得了。新的欧洲金融稳定基金(EFSF)无法胜任这一职责。而且将EFSF扩大到足够规模将大大增加法国的贷款,这将不利于法国,将其置于投机冲击的风险之下。

此时就需要欧洲债券出马了。五个受困国家需要发行数百亿欧元新债务,并对更大数额的就债务实行展期。市场上在很久以前就已难觅希腊、爱尔兰和葡萄牙发行的债务的买家了,很快,意大利和西班牙债也将无人问津(或者要求极高的利率)。但市场对于由整个欧元区的信誉作支撑的债券是不会失去兴趣的。

    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.
