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。

之后安娜在影片中花了很长时间才弄清楚汉斯是邪恶的代名词——他的目的是杀掉她和她的姐姐,并接管她们的王国。幸运的是她在冒险过程中认识了善良的平民克里斯托夫。与汉斯截然不同的克里斯托夫既真诚又可靠;他们最后喜结连理。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Rage Against the Elites

    • With the advantage of hindsight, four recent books bring to bear diverse perspectives on the West’s current populist moment. 
    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
