全球银行标准的威胁

伦敦—2008年金融危机极大地提高了全球标准制定者的地位。一夜之间,巴塞尔委员会(它负责制定国际银行监督标准)开始引领财经新闻。曼哈顿和肯辛顿(Kensington)的晚宴派对上充斥着关于巴塞尔II的细节和顺周期资本要求的弊端的闲言碎语。被质疑进行国际干预的政府急切地渴望更加严格的全球规则以防止银行危机溢出国界,像亚洲流感一样传染给其他国家。

这一热情的具体结果就是金融稳定委员会(FSB),它脱胎于金融稳定论坛,于2009年4月在G20伦敦峰会上成立,其成员包括所有G20成员国的代表以及巴塞尔委员会和其他机构的规则制定者。G7主导模式不再,人们希望更加广泛的参与能为增加银行系统资本要求带来更加全面的接受和更多政治支持。

所有这些变化都起了作用,但作用有限。比如,巴塞尔III规则将个体银行的资本要求提高了一倍,并加强了资本的质量。金融系统也因此看上去更加安全了。但如今,危险迹象表明加强全球标准——事实上,是一切共同标准——的努力可能正在消退。

    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.
