市场的美联储爱情故事

拉古纳海滩——早晨开车送我11岁的女儿上学的过程总是充满乐趣,而且往往也对我很有启发。一个活生生的例子是上周我女儿关于广受欢迎的迪斯尼电影《冰雪奇缘》的观点完全出乎我的预料。“这部电影挺不寻常”,她说,“迪斯尼居然有一部影片没告诉我们和刚刚见面的人结婚。”

电影一开始,安娜公主就在姐姐艾尔莎的加冕舞会上邂逅了汉斯王子。他们立刻在很多方面产生了共鸣,于是开始“坠入爱河”。他随即求婚,她也欣然接受,但艾尔莎却拒绝给他们祝福。

    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. While parts of the UK are certainly weakening economically, others may finally be overcoming longstanding challenges.

    The UK’s Multilateral Trade Future

    With Brexit looming, the UK has no choice but to redesign its future trading relationships. As a major producer of sophisticated components, its long-term trade strategy should focus on gaining deep and unfettered access to integrated cross-border supply chains – and that means adopting a multilateral approach.
