金融监管,八仙过海

巴黎—在金融危机的早期阶段,一个流行的观点是美国监管系统需要从根本上进行结构修正。证券交易委员会(SEC)和商品期货交易委员会(CFTC)态度的不同阻碍了对投资银行和衍生品交易的有效监督(只有美国相信分开监管证券和衍生品是有意义的)。

事实上,银行监管过于细分给寻找放纵使用资本的银行造就了制度套利的机会。类似地,联邦保险监管者的缺位使AIG归储蓄管理局(Office of Thrift Supervision,OTS)和纽约州保险局(New York State Insurance Department)监管,这一安排显然是不到位的。

这些观点并没有起到什么效果。多德-弗兰克法案确实成功地解除了OTS的忧虑,但眼红的各个国会监督委员会成功阻止了SEC和CFTC的合并,银行监督合理化也没有任何进展。因此,美国的制度与对21世纪初造成致命危局的集体视而不见并没有什么区别。

    Whither the Multilateral Trading System?

    The global economy today is dominated by three major players – China, the EU, and the US – with roughly equal trading volumes and limited incentive to fight for the rules-based global trading system. With cooperation unlikely, the world should prepare itself for the erosion of the World Trade Organization.

    The Globalization of Our Discontent

    Globalization, which was supposed to benefit developed and developing countries alike, is now reviled almost everywhere, as the political backlash in Europe and the US has shown. The challenge is to minimize the risk that the backlash will intensify, and that starts by understanding – and avoiding – past mistakes.

    A Better British Story

    Despite all of the doom and gloom over the United Kingdom's impending withdrawal from the European Union, key manufacturing indicators are at their highest levels in four years, and the mood for investment may be improving. While parts of the UK are certainly weakening economically, others may finally be overcoming longstanding challenges.

    The UK’s Multilateral Trade Future

    With Brexit looming, the UK has no choice but to redesign its future trading relationships. As a major producer of sophisticated components, its long-term trade strategy should focus on gaining deep and unfettered access to integrated cross-border supply chains – and that means adopting a multilateral approach.
