欧洲的法德梦幻团队

巴黎—国际货币基金组织(IMF)将其2014年和2015年全球增长预期分别从3.7%和3.9%调低到3.3%和3.8%时给出的原因是欧元区前景日益暗淡,而德国增长大幅放缓是主要因素。毕竟,欧元区仍贡献了全世界13%的产出(以市场价格衡量),与中国大致相当。

欧洲经济低迷反映在其政治局面中,许多欧洲选民如今陷入了无望的情绪,日益滑向极端意识形态。但两位极有名望的经济学家——法国政府政策规划总顾问让·皮萨尼-费里(Jean Pisani-Ferry)和德国改革派经济学家领袖人物亨里克·恩德莱恩(Henrik Enderlein)在他们即将发表的文章中设计了一条前进道路。

皮萨尼-费里和恩德莱恩的任务是为欧洲两大经济体设计新的改革战略,法国的关注点是结构性改革,德国的关注点是增加投资。我们希望这篇将在12月1日发表的文章能够实现突破,让长期宕机的欧元区经济引擎重新发动。

  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.
