美联储货币紧缩会不会搞垮新兴市场?

坎布里奇——随着被外界广为期待和猜测的美联储在美启动短期利率上调的日子越来越近,很多人都无法确定新兴市场经济将受到哪些冲击。 事实上,这个问题的提出始于2013年5月,时任美联储主席伯南克公开宣布将在当年晚些时候“收紧”量化宽松政策。该声明使美长期利率攀升,并导致资金流出新兴市场。

国际货币基金组织总裁克里斯蒂娜·拉加德提醒我们这种担忧已经不是第一次,比方说在1982和1994年,当时美联储货币政策收紧导致发展中国家陷入金融危机。如果美联储今年决定加息,哪些新兴经济体最容易受到资本流出的打击?

新兴市场无疑对全球市场波动极为敏感,这当中不仅包括美国的利率变化,还包括波动指数等其他金融风险。美国低利率所带来的充足现金流往往能稳定全球金融市场,但一旦条件逆转却会导致资金流突然枯竭。

    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.
