欧洲的空想资本市场联盟

伦敦—欧元区的生存再次面临威胁,希腊要求债务豁免并停止紧缩,否则……。但是,尽管欧洲货币联盟告急,银行联盟也仍处于初级阶段,但创造力无穷的欧盟委员会正在进行另一场冒险,所谓的“资本市场联盟”

“所谓”这个定于名副其实,因为这个工程在现阶段定义含糊,其意图绝不可能是打造单一的欧洲资本市场。事实上,如今欧盟领导人还不至于蠢到宣布如此野心——这需要新条约额,而没人准备打开这个魔盒。毕竟,欧洲选民无意给予布鲁塞尔更多的权力。

资本市场联盟起初其实是一个口号,由欧盟委员会主席容克的一位助手提出。如今,新任金融市场委员、英国的希尔勋爵(Lord Jonathan Hill)不可避免地承担了给出这一计划细节的任务。欧盟委员会关于该问题的“绿皮书”咨询轮所提出的问题多于找到的答案。

    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.

    Rage Against the Elites

    • With the advantage of hindsight, four recent books bring to bear diverse perspectives on the West’s current populist moment. 
    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    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.
