打赢下一次全球金融危机

纽黑文—当人们批评将军们“打上一场战争”时,他们是什么意思?并不是将军们会认为他们将在同一片战场上面临同一套武器系统。他们显然知道得更多。就将军们所犯下的错误而言,必然是在更加微妙的层面犯下的。有时候,将军们为这些新武器系统和战场制定计划和装备的动作缓慢。同样重要的是,有时候他们假设大众心理,以及影响对获胜至关重要的士气的叙事,与上一场战争是一样的。

对于负有预防金融危机责任的监管者来说也是如此。出于同样的原因,他们应对新情况可能动作缓慢。他们总是很慢地适应变化的大众心理。监管需要取决于大众对上一场危机的感知,乔治·阿克洛夫(George Akerlof)和我在《动物精神》(Animal Spirits)中指出,这一感知严重取决于变化的流行叙事。

巴塞尔金融稳定委员会(FSB)最新进展报告列出了全球24个最大经济体在强化稳定的金融监管方面所做出的切实改进。它们的“仪表板”上标明了14个不同监管领域的进展。比如,FSB给所有24国对基于风险的巴塞尔III要求的实施情况都打了高分。

  3. Murdoch's Last Stand?

    Rupert Murdoch’s sale of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney for $66 billion may mark the end of the media mogul’s career, which will long be remembered for its corrosive effect on democratic discourse on both sides of the Atlantic. 

    From enabling the rise of Donald Trump to hacking the telephone of a murdered British schoolgirl, Murdoch’s media empire has staked its success on stoking populist rage.

    The Dangerous Delusion of Price Stability

    Since the hyperinflation of the 1970s, which central banks were right to combat by whatever means necessary, maintaining positive but low inflation has become a monetary-policy obsession. But, because the world economy has changed dramatically since then, central bankers have started to miss the monetary-policy forest for the trees.

    Jeffrey Frankel, a professor at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and a former member of President Bill Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisers, outlines the five criteria he uses to judge the efficacy of tax reform efforts. And in his view, the US Republicans’ most recent offering fails miserably.

But ensuring that those changes are positive – helping to fight tumors and mosquito-borne illnesses, for example – will require scientists to apply the utmost caution.
