用SDR融资摆脱全球通缩

香港—人们日益认识到,在当今全球化的世界,金融市场已经超出了一国政策制定者的控制。虽然一些经济体的规模确实达到了可以影响相互关联的全球市场的规模,但它们都面临着严重的国内政治和经济的制约。结果,全球经济陷入了以顺周期失衡为特征的金融通缩长周期,难以找到摆脱之道。

克劳迪奥·博里奥(Claudio Borio)在多年前指出,全球金融周期与实体经济周期相比变得越来越长,并且与主要储备货币美元的价值波动密切相关。当美元疲软时,资本从美国流向其他国家,通过增加资本流入国的信用刺激其增长。

对这些国家(通常是新兴经济体)来说,不幸的是资本的流入也刺激了通货膨胀、资产泡沫和货币升值。结果是金融和地缘政治风险增加,从而让投资者更加青睐美元。随着资本流回美国,美元变得坚挺,而新兴经济体则需要面对资产泡沫破裂和货币贬值的后果。

    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.
