印度是如何走出危机的

发自新德里——随着世界经济开始复苏,印度人也得以志得意满地回顾自己当时是如何应对这场危机的。虽然全球正遭遇着前所未有的衰退,但印度依然成功保持着世界第二快的增长态势。而当其它国家的GDP在过去两年内出现了至少25%的负增长时,印度反而取得了6%的提升——2009年第4季度更实现了7.9%的飞跃。

而将印度的成就衬托得更为引人注目的,在巴基斯坦恐怖分子于2008年11月对孟买——印度的经济神经中枢和商业首都——的袭击事件。当时正值危机中期,印度的国际形象——正在崛起的经济巨人,全球化时期的成功故事,全球投资者和旅游者的圣地——都因恐怖分子的暴行而蒙上了阴影。

在2008年年末的时候,外国投资者已经从印度股市中抽回了120亿美元,但凭借着遭受困境之后的回复力以及面对暴力挑衅时的克制力,印度成功赢回了投资者的心。在全球危机之中,境外直接投资总额在2008~2009年达到了273亿美元,仅在2009年5月就取得了10亿美元的成绩。

    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.

    Rage Against the Elites

    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    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.
