发展金融的创新

罗马—40多年前,世界最富有国家承诺至少将GDP的0.7%用于官方发展援助(ODA)。但只有不到六个国家实际达到了这一目标。事实上,ODA支付一直不稳定、不可靠也没有反应需求,关于其有效性的怀疑也从未消散。

冷战后,ODA大幅缩水,1997—2001年间只占发达国家总GDP的0.22%。2001年9月11日美国遭遇恐怖袭击以及2002年墨西哥蒙特雷国际发展金融会议之后,ODA有所增加。接着,随着全球经济危机导致发达国家纷纷采取严厉财政紧缩,ODA再次回落,2010—2011年间只占GDP的0.31%。

但是,自蒙特雷会议以来,发展金融需求大幅增加,包括贸易援助机制和气候变化抑制和适应融资。尽管创新发展融资领导小组(Leading Group on Innovative Financing for Development,由63国政府和国际组织和公民社会团体组成)在过去十年中起到了极大的推动作用,但创新发展金融的概念仍在争议中。事实上,批评者认为领导小组认定的作为潜在融资源的国际税——比如碳排税——损害了国家主权。

    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.

    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.
