2011年的全球风险和机遇

发自纽约——在某种程度上,2011年将会是一系列2010年趋势的延伸——发达经济体将经历一个贫血且落后于大势的U型复苏,因为企业和家庭都需要时间去修复自身的资产负债表;而得益于强大的宏观经济,财政和政策手段,新兴市场经济体将实现强劲的V型复苏。这意味着全球经济将在2011年取得大概4%的增长,其中发达经济体增长约2%,而新兴市场国家则有6%。

而在这种情况中,下行风险和上升机遇是同时存在的。在下行风险方面,其中一个最严峻的问题就是如果欧元区的问题向葡萄牙,西班牙和比利时蔓延(这种可能性极大),欧洲国家的财政危机将进一步恶化。考虑到国际货币基金组织以及欧盟当前掌握的官方资源总量,他们一方面无法承受西班牙财政崩溃的后果,另一方面却又无力拯救如此庞大的一个国家。

而美国则代表了全球增长的另一个下行风险。2011年的美国将可能遭遇住宅市场二次探底、高失业率新增职位不足、长期信用恐慌、各州和地方政府预算缺口增大,以及由于联邦政府财政状况不够稳定而导致的借贷成本急升。此外由于金融机构更倾向于规避风险,所以欧美两地的信贷增长将十分有限。

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • In the first year of his presidency, Donald Trump has consistently sold out the blue-collar, socially conservative whites who brought him to power, while pursuing policies to enrich his fellow plutocrats. 

    • Sooner or later, Trump's core supporters will wake up to this fact, so it is worth asking how far he might go to keep them on his side.

    The Man Who Didn’t Save the World

    A Saudi prince has been revealed to be the buyer of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," for which he spent $450.3 million. Had he given the money to the poor, as the subject of the painting instructed another rich man, he could have restored eyesight to nine million people, or enabled 13 million families to grow 50% more food.

    Two Myths About Automation

    While many people believe that technological progress and job destruction are accelerating dramatically, there is no evidence of either trend. In reality, total factor productivity, the best summary measure of the pace of technical change, has been stagnating since 2005 in the US and across the advanced-country world.

    The Hungarian Government’s Failed Campaign of Lies

    The Hungarian government has released the results of its "national consultation" on what it calls the "Soros Plan" to flood the country with Muslim migrants and refugees. But no such plan exists, only a taxpayer-funded propaganda campaign to help a corrupt administration deflect attention from its failure to fulfill Hungarians’ aspirations.
