La financiación de la seguridad climática

NUEVA YORK – El objeto del sistema financiero mundial es el de asignar los ahorros del mundo a sus utilizaciones más productivas. Cuando el sistema funciona adecuadamente, se canalizan dichos ahorros en inversiones que aumentan el nivel de vida; cuando no funciona bien, como en los últimos años, se canalizan los ahorros en burbujas inmobiliarias y proyectos medioambientalmente perjudiciales, incluidos los que exacerban el cambio climático inducido por el hombre.

El año 2015 será un punto de inflexión en el empeño de crear un sistema financiero mundial que contribuya a la seguridad climática en lugar de a la ruina climática. En julio, los gobiernos del mundo se reunirán en Addis Abeba a fin de acordar un nuevo marco para la financiación mundial.

El objetivo de la reunión será el de facilitar un sistema financiero que apoye el desarrollo sostenible, lo que quiere decir un crecimiento económico que no sea socialmente excluyente y sí medioambientalmente racional. Cinco meses después, los gobiernos del mundo firmarán en París un nuevo acuerdo mundial para luchar contra el cambio climático inducido por el hombre y canalizar fondos en la energía inocua para el clima, partiendo de los avances logrados este mes en las negociaciones celebradas en Lima (Perú). También allí la financiación cobrará gran importancia.

    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.

    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.
