新兴市场的欧洲复仇女神

布鲁塞尔—新兴市场货币正在暴跌,它们的央行忙于收紧政策,试图稳定国内金融市场。出现这样的状况谁是罪魁祸首?

几年前,当美联储抛出新一轮“量化宽松”时,一些新兴市场领导人大胜抱怨。他们认为美联储无限期的购买长期债券是在试图造成美元的竞争性贬值,并且担心极端宽松的美国货币条件会导致“热钱”大量涌入,推高他们国家的汇率。他们担心,这不但会削弱他们的出口竞争力,导致他们的对外账户转为赤字;如果美国决策者转变政策方向,这还会造成资本流入突然停止的严重后果。

乍一看,这些担心不无道理。IMF最新论文的标题言简意赅地指出,《资本流是易变的:不论何时,不论何国》(“Capital Flows are Fickle: Anytime, Anywhere)。仅仅宣布美联储可能缩减非常规货币政策操作的规模便已导致如今资本逃离新兴市场的局面。

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls. 
    • But moving beyond Xi's anti-corruption purge to build robust and lasting anti-graft institutions will not be easy, owing to enduring opportunities for bureaucratic capture.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.

    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.
