欧洲的停滞盈余

伦敦—当世界其他地区从2008—2009年大衰退中复苏时,欧洲陷入了停滞。明年欧元区增长率预计为1.7%。计将安出?

一个办法是欧元贬值。本月早些时候,空中客车公司首席执行官呼吁采取积极动作让欧元对美元贬值10%左右,从“疯狂的”1欧元兑1.35美元贬至1.20到1.25美元。欧洲央行将其存款利率从0%降到-0.1%,事实上这是对将钱存在欧洲央行的银行收费。但这些措施在外汇市场上收效甚微

这主要是因为没有采取动作提振总需求。英国、美国和日本都提高了货币供给以重振经济,货币贬值成为复苏机制的重要部分。欧洲央行德拉吉经常暗示要采取量化宽松——上个月他重申“如有需要,我们将迅速加大货币政策宽松”——但永远拿不出如同英格兰银行行长卡尼(Mark Carney)的承诺。一位前英国大臣最近将卡尼比作“靠不住的男朋友”

    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.
