不可抵抗的人民币崛起

首尔—今年年底,国际货币基金组织(IMF)将决定是否将人民币与欧元、日元、英镑和美元一起纳入决定其国际储备资产——特别提款权(SDR)价值的货币篮子。中国在努力推进让人民币进入这一货币篮子。人民币应该得到承认吗?

1969年,IMF创造了SDR以补充已有的储备货币,从而为全球金融体系增加流动性。目前,SDR的作用主要仍局限于IMF的操作;其占全球金融市场和央行国际储备的比重可以忽略不计。尽管如此,将人民币加入SDR货币篮子具有重要的象征意义,意味着承认中国全球地位的提高。人民币已是世界贸易和投资的主要货币,在国际金融交易和储备持有量中的比例越来越高。

为了被纳入SDR货币篮子,中国政府放松了资本管制,金融市场自由度大大增加。进入SDR货币篮子需要更进一步,而这,加上人民币成为可投资的全球货币,将让整个世界经济获益。

    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.

    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.
