金融新规则终于到来

    巴黎报道——76年前的1933年6月,世界货币与经济会议在伦敦举行,与会的66个国家的首脑齐心协力地商讨着如何终结如火如荼的货币失调与贸易战争,并同时总结着大萧条给人的教训。会议结束之时,协商也以失败告终。

    2009年4月2日,世界首脑们将再次前往伦敦为金融与经济危机寻找解决之道,而这次危机的可怕程度堪比1929年的那次。我们无法让历史再次重演。如果各国对危机都无动于衷,那么我们就面临危险,即重返20世纪30年代大萧条时的政治与经济的悲哀,那次危机最终让世界陷入一种毁灭性的冲突之中。

    当然,我们必须采取以近乎于处理紧急事件的姿态来同时对衰退的经济与金融市场的动荡进行回应。这也是刺激措施与金融拯救计划在欧洲、美国与亚洲的一些大国在第一时间被相继采纳的原因。

    Angela Merkel’s Endgame?

    The collapse of coalition negotiations has left German Chancellor Angela Merkel facing a stark choice between forming a minority government or calling for a new election. But would a minority government necessarily be as bad as Germans have traditionally thought?

    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.

    The Platform Economy

    While developed countries in Europe, North America, and Asia are rapidly aging, emerging economies are predominantly youthful. Nigerian, Indonesian, and Vietnamese young people will shape global work trends at an increasingly rapid pace, bringing to bear their experience in dynamic informal markets on a tech-enabled gig economy.

    Profiles in Discouragement

    One day, the United States will turn the page on Donald Trump. But, as Americans prepare to observe their Thanksgiving holiday, they should reflect that their country's culture and global standing will never recover fully from the wounds that his presidency is inflicting on them.

    How Women Shape Coups

    In Zimbabwe, as in all coups, much behind-the-scenes plotting continues to take place in the aftermath of the military's overthrow of President Robert Mugabe. But who the eventual winners and losers are may depend, among other things, on the gender of the plotters.

    The Abnormality of Oil

    At the 2017 Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, the consensus among industry executives was that oil prices will still be around $60 per barrel in November 2018. But there is evidence to suggest that the uptick in global growth and developments in Saudi Arabia will push the price as high as $80 in the meantime.

    The Saudi Prince’s Dangerous War Games

    Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is working hard to consolidate power and establish his country as the Middle East’s only hegemon. But his efforts – which include an attempt to trigger a war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon – increasingly look like the work of an immature gambler.
