摆脱欧元区的恶性循环

萨拉曼卡—欧元区陷入了恶性循环,疲软的银行系统危害了主权国家的财政状况,而这反过来又危害银行系统的稳定。但是,在过去几年中,决策者的注意力基板上集中在减少银行对主权国家的影响上——比如成立泛欧洲监管当局和建立欧洲清算机制——而忽略了反方向的反馈。

尽管欧元区主权债务市场已经稳定下来,但银行持有本国主权债券的比例在最近几个月中大幅上升,一些国家甚至达到了净新增债务的一半以上。在西班牙和意大利,主权债券目前占银行总资产的10%左右。

风险在于,疲软债务国的主权债券市场所面临的任何意料之外的挑战——比如加泰罗尼亚的独立公投或葡萄牙和希腊援助计划的重新谈判——都会破坏银行偿债能力,并且破坏力常常会比前几次反馈循环更大。此外,即使不发生危机,主权债券市场的地理隔离也极大地妨碍着货币政策的传导。

    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.
