习主席的新加坡教训

纽约—如今,中国正站在关键点上,一如1978年邓小平的市场经济改革将中国经济的大门朝世界打开,又如20世纪90年代初邓小平以著名的“南巡”确认中国的发展道路。

在此期间,来自其他国家的先例和教训十分重要。据报道,邓小平深受其早先赴新加坡访问的影响。新加坡的快速增长和繁荣要早于中国几十年。了解其他发展中国家的成功和不足是——现在仍是——中国制定增长战略的重要组成部分。

与新加坡、日本、韩国和台湾省在现代增长的最初几十年一样,中国也是一党执政。新加坡的人民行动党仍是第一大党,尽管情况似乎在发生变化。其他国家则在中等收入转型中发展为多党制民主国家。从经济结构和收入水平来说,中国现在也快走完其迈向发达国家的长征之路,之差关键的临门一脚了。

  3. Murdoch's Last Stand?

    Rupert Murdoch’s sale of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney for $66 billion may mark the end of the media mogul’s career, which will long be remembered for its corrosive effect on democratic discourse on both sides of the Atlantic. 

    From enabling the rise of Donald Trump to hacking the telephone of a murdered British schoolgirl, Murdoch’s media empire has staked its success on stoking populist rage.

    The Dangerous Delusion of Price Stability

    Since the hyperinflation of the 1970s, which central banks were right to combat by whatever means necessary, maintaining positive but low inflation has become a monetary-policy obsession. But, because the world economy has changed dramatically since then, central bankers have started to miss the monetary-policy forest for the trees.

    Jeffrey Frankel, a professor at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and a former member of President Bill Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisers, outlines the five criteria he uses to judge the efficacy of tax reform efforts. And in his view, the US Republicans’ most recent offering fails miserably.
