银行危机结束了吗?

慕尼黑——随着美国各项救市措施陆续出台,股票市场多少有些复苏。标准普尔500市盈率正逐渐攀升到16倍的长期均值。尤其是银行的股价正在回升,一些银行已经成功偿还了一部分政府注入的资本。

但是,就如同我在本人的新书《赌场-资本》中指出的,这些现象只是境况暂时好转,而并非全面复苏。因为银行资产负债表上的隐形亏损可能很大。根据国际货币基金组织最近的估算,在美国、日本、欧元区和英国,债权的总销账金额将达到40.05万亿美元,仅美元这一币种就将占到27万亿美元。

据我对彭博数据的分析,截至2009年2月,全球范围内实际销账的仅为11.2万亿美元。这意味着,在所有必需的销账中,目前只完成了四分之一。

    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 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.
