全球化美联储

牛津—美国应该担心其货币政策是否正在给新兴和发展中国家(EMDC)造成严重伤害?这是实施量化宽松计划如火如荼的面联储所面临的问题,其每个月都买长期资产的操作驱使渴望收益的投资者涌入这些国家,造成它们的货币升值、资产价格上涨。如今,这仍是一个紧迫问题,因为美联储正在减少资产买入规模,造成了资本流逆转,许多EMDC大有高处不胜寒之感。

和大部分观察者所认为的相反,仔细审视美联储的使命或争论发展中国家决策者的记录并不能找到答案。相反,这一问题与美国是否以及如何愿意领导全球经济有关。如果美国想捍卫开放、稳定的全球金融秩序,就不可以忽视新兴市场当前的动荡。

自从去年“逐渐退出”的声音出现以来,越来越多的EMDC感受到了压力:它们的货币在贬值,资本在外逃,央行在阻止国内增长减缓和维持外部稳定的双重任务之间疲于奔命。发达经济体刚刚尚处于萌芽状态的复苏似乎正在到处制造动荡,从阿根廷到土耳其和印度概莫能外。

    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.
