费希尔、美联储和美国的增长

美国剑桥—耶伦即将担任美国联邦储蓄委员会主席,于是人们的注意力转向了谁将接替她担任副主席。斯坦利·费希尔(Stanley Fischer)是理想人选,因为他拥有无与伦比的技能、资质和经验组合。

在学术生涯中,费希尔是货币经济学界成就最高的学者之一。接着,他担任过世界银行首席经济学家、国际货币基金组织(IMF)第一副总裁,最近又担任了以色列银行行长。在这些岗位上,费希尔都做出了斐然的成绩。事实上,你很难想象还有哪位经济学家(至少从凯恩斯以来)能像费希尔那样完美结合了分析技能、可靠的政策判断、清晰的表达、对世界的无私奉献以及把事情做对的能力——而且还具备了冷静幽默的特质。

此外,在20世纪90年代在IMF以及2008—2009全球金融危机中在以色列央行任职期间,费希尔积累了丰富的危机管理经验。这使他成为耶伦的理想搭档。耶伦也是成就卓著的学者和决策者,但在可以充分准备时,她从来不遗余力。

    For four decades, China has achieved unprecedented economic growth under a centralized, authoritarian political system, far outpacing growth in the Western liberal democracies. So, is Chinese President Xi Jinping right to double down on authoritarianism, and is the “China model” truly a viable rival to Western-style democratic capitalism?

    Whither the Multilateral Trading System?

    The global economy today is dominated by three major players – China, the EU, and the US – with roughly equal trading volumes and limited incentive to fight for the rules-based global trading system. With cooperation unlikely, the world should prepare itself for the erosion of the World Trade Organization.

    The Globalization of Our Discontent

    Globalization, which was supposed to benefit developed and developing countries alike, is now reviled almost everywhere, as the political backlash in Europe and the US has shown. The challenge is to minimize the risk that the backlash will intensify, and that starts by understanding – and avoiding – past mistakes.

    A Better British Story

    Despite all of the doom and gloom over the United Kingdom's impending withdrawal from the European Union, key manufacturing indicators are at their highest levels in four years, and the mood for investment may be improving.

    The UK’s Multilateral Trade Future

    With Brexit looming, the UK has no choice but to redesign its future trading relationships. As a major producer of sophisticated components, its long-term trade strategy should focus on gaining deep and unfettered access to integrated cross-border supply chains – and that means adopting a multilateral approach.
