股东何为王?

这个事件发生在法国、比利时和卢森堡。但是,这的确是一个影响全欧洲甚至从经济角度来说影响全球的事件。全球最大的钢铁制造商米塔尔通过最初的恶意收购,成功地获得了全球第二大钢铁制造商阿塞洛归的控制权。

这已经不再是一场简单的公司收购行为;而是商业模式和社会模式之间的冲突。原先属于法国和卢森堡、而今受比利时支配的阿塞洛公司在巴西根基雄厚而且业务覆盖世界大部分地区。该公司主要生产针对复杂应用的品质卓越的特殊钢铁制品。这些高质量产品的销售主要依赖公司与长期客户达成的中期及长期合同进行。阿塞洛作为世界上最老牌的钢铁制造商之一几乎不依赖于具有高投机性的全球原钢市场,并且拥有平均素质很高且稳定的员工队伍。

相比之下,米塔尔则是后起之秀,仅在20年间便成为世界领先地位的钢铁联合企业。这主要是通过对其全球钢铁工厂的巩固和合理调整而实现的。米塔尔的总裁是印度人,却并未在印度设厂。该公司主要以东欧为基底,但在亚洲(韩国)和拉丁美洲市场上也具有强劲表现。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
