萨科齐时刻

发自伦敦——就在金融危机集中爆发的三年前,我写了一本关于国际金融管制制度的指南《全球金融管制:必读指南》。书中呈现了一个由众多委员会,理事会以及其他部门组成的全球监管架构,虽看似天网恢恢,但却被责任重叠,代表性缺乏和执行能力不足等问题弄得千疮百孔——这是一个耗费人们数十年的心血积累而成,无奈却始终缺乏一个指导性架构或者核心机构去推动全球统一监管标准的系统。。

随后那几年所发生的一切已经彻底暴露了上述缺陷的内在危险性,又经过一大堆峰会论坛大肆讨论之后,这本2008年出版的金融管制指南似乎已经过时。但不幸的是,情况恰恰相反。

毫无疑问,有些方面已经得到改善。在世界政经金字塔的顶端,7国集团(G7)不得不让位给代表性更强的20国集团(G20),将中国和印度当作全权合作伙伴纳入决策圈内。虽然这也令G20峰会更加臃肿,但却也清晰地反映了经济实力从西方向东方转移的事实

    Angela Merkel’s Endgame?

    The collapse of coalition negotiations has left German Chancellor Angela Merkel facing a stark choice between forming a minority government or calling for a new election. But would a minority government necessarily be as bad as Germans have traditionally thought?

    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.

    The Platform Economy

    While developed countries in Europe, North America, and Asia are rapidly aging, emerging economies are predominantly youthful. Nigerian, Indonesian, and Vietnamese young people will shape global work trends at an increasingly rapid pace, bringing to bear their experience in dynamic informal markets on a tech-enabled gig economy.

    Profiles in Discouragement

    One day, the United States will turn the page on Donald Trump. But, as Americans prepare to observe their Thanksgiving holiday, they should reflect that their country's culture and global standing will never recover fully from the wounds that his presidency is inflicting on them.

    How Women Shape Coups

    In Zimbabwe, as in all coups, much behind-the-scenes plotting continues to take place in the aftermath of the military's overthrow of President Robert Mugabe. But who the eventual winners and losers are may depend, among other things, on the gender of the plotters.

    The Abnormality of Oil

    At the 2017 Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, the consensus among industry executives was that oil prices will still be around $60 per barrel in November 2018. But there is evidence to suggest that the uptick in global growth and developments in Saudi Arabia will push the price as high as $80 in the meantime.

    The Saudi Prince’s Dangerous War Games

    Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is working hard to consolidate power and establish his country as the Middle East’s only hegemon. But his efforts – which include an attempt to trigger a war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon – increasingly look like the work of an immature gambler.
