什么在阻止复苏?

米兰—全球经济的增长地图已经相对清晰。美国正在局部复苏之中,增长率为1.5—2%左右,但就业萎靡不振。欧洲作为一个整体只是略有增着那个,国家间差别很大,尽管有证据表明痛苦的再趋同正在发生,至少从名义单位劳动力成本看是如此。与此同时,中国的增长正在向7%靠近,其他发展中国家在准备提高利率。

许多发达经济体仍必须克服来自内需过剩的危机前增长模式的结束造成的后果。在这些经济体中,这一模式不仅往往依赖于杠杆;也常常扩大了经济中的不可贸易部门,压缩了可贸易部门。此外,由于不可贸易部门受其对内需的依赖,复苏——即使到来——将取决于可贸易部门的增长潜力。

    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.
