重塑国际货币基金组织(IMF)

全球经济已经经历了相当一段时间没有蔓延式金融危机的强劲增长,而且有很好的理由让我们期望这种表现还会持续。但最近,这种信心却由于许多因素而动摇了:飙升的石油价格,“卡特里娜” 飓风这样的自然灾害和日渐增长的全球不平衡—一些国家的盈余被其他国家的巨额赤字所抵消。

这些问题影响不同国家和世界经济的方式展示了全球化的现实。的确,为了平衡日益一体化的世界经济所带来的潜在利益和危险,各国政府需要一些新的工具和对各种影响力量的更深刻认识。较为贫穷的发展中国家面临更大的挑战:它们需要融入全球经济以缩短与世界其他国家的差距,并为其最贫穷的公民带来现实的利益。

国际货币基金组织(IMF)成立于二战后,旨在帮助各国避免经济政策上的失误。正是这些失误导致了二战这场灾难。在过去的60年里,该组织的职责随着世界经济的发展变化而增加。当我在一年多以前加入该组织时,明显感到我们的成员国对它仍然有着强烈的需求。我因此就开展了一项针对该机构在世界经济中的作用和它应该如何改变的研究。

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls. 
    • But moving beyond Xi's anti-corruption purge to build robust and lasting anti-graft institutions will not be easy, owing to enduring opportunities for bureaucratic capture.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.

    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.
