欧风安倍经济学

纽约—两年前,安倍晋三当选为日本首相,启动了被称为“安倍经济学”的三管齐下计划,试图让日本经济走出滞涨和通缩困局。安倍经济学的三个组成部分——或三支“箭”——包括以量化和定性宽松(QQE)为形式的大规模货币刺激(包括向私人部门提供更多信用);短期财政刺激以及随后的整合以降低赤字、使公共债务可持续;以及旨在强化供给面和潜在增长的结构性改革。

根据欧洲央行行长德拉吉在杰克森霍尔(Jackson Hole)的最新讲话,欧洲央行也为欧元区准备了类似的计划。“德拉吉经济学”的第一个要素是加速必要的结构性改革以提振欧元区潜在产出增长。这些关键改革方面的进展一直令人失望,有的国家用力多(如西班牙和爱尔兰),有的国家用力少(意大利和法国是其中之二)。

但德拉吉现在认识到,欧元区复苏之所以缓慢、不平衡又无力,其原因并不只限于结构性问题,还有周期性因素,而对于周期性因素,更重要的是总需求而不是总供给约束。因此,增加需求的措施也是必不可少的。

    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.
