当金融市场对政治产生误读

坎布里奇——当土耳其正义与发展党(AKP)11月1日在大选中重获议会多数推翻了专家和民意调查机构的预测,金融市场欢呼雀跃。第二天,伊斯坦布尔证交所指数涨幅超过5%,土耳其里拉也有所升值。

别说如今在金融圈要找说雷杰普·塔伊普·埃尔多安或他在2014年当选总统前领导的土耳其正义与发展党(AKP)好话的人很难。而且不要搞错:虽然土耳其总统本该超脱于党派政治之上,但正义与发展党的事务仍然完全由埃尔多安掌握。

其实是埃尔多安的分而治之策略——即推动宗教民粹主义和民族主义情绪,并煽动与库尔德人的民族紧张——让正义与发展党取得了胜利。可以说,这是唯一可能有效的策略。毕竟,埃尔多安政权对媒体的攻击已经疏远了自由主义者;在所谓葛兰运动中没收昔日盟友所属的企业又疏远了商界领军人物;其对抗性语言和对待伊斯兰国的多变立场又得罪了西方盟国。

  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.

  5. Harvard’s Jeffrey Frankel Measures the GOP’s Tax Plan

    Jeffrey Frankel, a professor at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and a former member of President Bill Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisers, outlines the five criteria he uses to judge the efficacy of tax reform efforts.

But ensuring that those changes are positive – helping to fight tumors and mosquito-borne illnesses, for example – will require scientists to apply the utmost caution.
