对抗美联储

发自剑桥——美联储正就一项法律提案与国会议员进行交锋,该法案名为美国联邦储备委员会问责制和透明度法案,要求美联储使用正式的规则来指导货币政策。美联储担心法律会限制其独立性,而该法案的支持者认为,这将产生更多可预测的低通胀经济增长。谁才是正确的呢?

为了理解这一冲突,有必要在此将美联储的独立性与<>英格兰银行及欧洲央行进行一些比较。

在英国,英格兰银行拥有“工具独立性”而不是“目标独立性”。财政部设定目标通货膨胀率,由英格兰银行决定采用何种政策来实现这一目标。如果结果偏离超过1%而不能实现目标,行长就必须向财政部发送一封公开信解释原因(以及央行提议应当采取什么措施进行补救)。

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls. 
    • But moving beyond Xi's anti-corruption purge to build robust and lasting anti-graft institutions will not be easy, owing to enduring opportunities for bureaucratic capture.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.
