美联储升息后的新兴市场

纽约—美联储将于今年晚些时候开始退出零利率政策,这一前景让人们日益担心新兴经济体货币、债券和股市波动将卷土重来。这一担心不难理解:2013年美联储放出信号表示即将结束量化宽松政策时,由此到来的“缩减恐慌”(taper tantrum)在诸多新兴国家金融市场和经济中引起余震。

事实上,人们担心,美国利率的上升以及美元价值的继续上升可能重创新兴市场政府、金融机构、公司甚至家庭。在过去几年中,所有这些部门借入了数以万亿计的美元,如今,它们将面临债务实际本币价值的上升,而与此同时,美国利率的升高将进一步推高新兴市场国内利率,从而进一步增加债务维持负担。

但是,尽管美联储升息的前景可能造成新兴国家金融市场的剧烈动荡,但爆发全面危机和灾难的风险比较有限。首先,2013年的削减恐慌让市场措手不及,但美联储在今年升息的意图已经明确表态了好几个月,不会再让市场措手不及。此外,美联储升息时机和节奏可能会比此前几个周期更晚更慢,采取逐步响应的方式,以符合美国经济增长之稳健足以维持更高的借贷成本的信号。更加强劲的增长将有益于向美国出口商品和服务的新兴市场。

    China in the Lead?

    For four decades, China has achieved unprecedented economic growth under a centralized, authoritarian political system, far outpacing growth in the Western liberal democracies. So, is Chinese President Xi Jinping right to double down on authoritarianism, and is the “China model” truly a viable rival to Western-style democratic capitalism?

    Whither the Multilateral Trading System?

    The global economy today is dominated by three major players – China, the EU, and the US – with roughly equal trading volumes and limited incentive to fight for the rules-based global trading system. With cooperation unlikely, the world should prepare itself for the erosion of the World Trade Organization.

    The Globalization of Our Discontent

    Globalization, which was supposed to benefit developed and developing countries alike, is now reviled almost everywhere, as the political backlash in Europe and the US has shown. The challenge is to minimize the risk that the backlash will intensify, and that starts by understanding – and avoiding – past mistakes.

    A Better British Story

    Despite all of the doom and gloom over the United Kingdom's impending withdrawal from the European Union, key manufacturing indicators are at their highest levels in four years, and the mood for investment may be improving. While parts of the UK are certainly weakening economically, others may finally be overcoming longstanding challenges.

    The UK’s Multilateral Trade Future

    With Brexit looming, the UK has no choice but to redesign its future trading relationships. As a major producer of sophisticated components, its long-term trade strategy should focus on gaining deep and unfettered access to integrated cross-border supply chains – and that means adopting a multilateral approach.
