活力四射的巴西

自从路易斯•伊纳西奥•卢拉•达席尔瓦(Luis Inácio Lula da Silva)总统2002年10月首度当选以来,巴西的圣保罗证交所指数(Bovespa index)在扣除通胀因素后的价值增长已经超过四倍,而且目前所处的点位是2000年高点的两倍。相比之下,扣除通胀因素后的上证综指仅仅上涨了两倍,而美国股市如果用扣除通胀因素的标准普尔500来衡量,增长率只有50%。事实上,美国股价还从未在不到五年的时间内经历过四倍的增长,即便在20世纪90年代后期的股市泡沫中也不例外。

考虑到卢拉是人所共知的左翼分子,坚定地把雨果·查维兹(Hugo Chávez)和菲德尔·卡斯特罗(Fidel Castro)列为自己的伙伴,巴西的经济发展就更令人感到震惊。他是怎样导演了这样一场蔚为壮观的股市大发展?巴西股市是不是太过繁荣了?国外投资者是不是应该撤出资金?

股市的运行肯定很难解释,但我们有理由认为巴西仍然属于 理性的 繁荣。巴西企业盈利的增速几乎可以同股价的增速相媲美。由于市盈率保持稳定并相对合理,目前的股市繁荣似乎不只是投资者心理的反映。

    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.
