日本即将到来的“工资惊奇”

东京—2013是日本经济迎来二十年停滞转折的一年。未来将因为我们所谓的“工资惊奇”的出现而更加光明。

9月以来在日本政府、商界和劳工领袖间进行的激烈讨论正在产生向上的良性循环——工资增加带来更鲁棒的增长。到目前为止,我参加了四次会议中的两次,其他参加者还有财务相、经济相、劳动相以及丰田汽车的丰田章男、日本工会联合会主席古贺伸明等人。每次会议开完后,我都有一种充满信心、欢欣鼓舞的感觉。

让我们直面现实。日本的通缩压力(其实不仅仅在日本是如此)已经远远地超过了十年。在我担任首相之初,我发起了观察者称为“安倍经济学”的政策组合,因为长期以来,只有我的国家的名义工资水平处于负实际增长状态。

    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

    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.
