拉丁美洲右翼的崛起

拉古娜海滩—从阿根廷到巴西的政府更迭到智利的政策半途调整,拉丁美洲政治似乎正在向右转。但这一复现象行并非右派所鼓吹的经济政策的吸引力所“拉动”,而主要是疲软的增长和令人失望的公共品供给(特别是社会服务)所带来的“推力”的表现。

事实上,我们可以将这一转变视为西方反建制运动如火如荼的拉丁美洲版。而这意味着该地区的政府必须表现得出公民有所得。否则,这一转变将只是通往更不稳定的目的地的不确定道路上的一站,而这条道路可能变得更加复杂,经济更加难以驾驭。

方兴未艾的政治变革迹象呈现出多种形式。在经历了多年的基什内尔家族财政失责的民粹主义统治后,阿根廷选择了来自右翼阵营的前商人马克里。在巴西,等待参议院最终考虑结果的总统罗塞夫已经被一边倒地“暂时弹劾”,而她的下台标志着对左翼工党(Workers’ Party)政策的背离。

  3. Murdoch's Last Stand?

    Rupert Murdoch’s sale of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney for $66 billion may mark the end of the media mogul’s career, which will long be remembered for its corrosive effect on democratic discourse on both sides of the Atlantic. 

    From enabling the rise of Donald Trump to hacking the telephone of a murdered British schoolgirl, Murdoch’s media empire has staked its success on stoking populist rage.

    The Dangerous Delusion of Price Stability

    Since the hyperinflation of the 1970s, which central banks were right to combat by whatever means necessary, maintaining positive but low inflation has become a monetary-policy obsession. But, because the world economy has changed dramatically since then, central bankers have started to miss the monetary-policy forest for the trees.

And in his view, the US Republicans’ most recent offering fails miserably.
