接下来是中资银行?

华盛顿—最近,美国政坛陷入了瘫痪,而欧元区危机好一阵坏一阵,至少从表面上,这是中国的黄金机会。诚然,美国和欧洲的萎靡可能伤及中国的出口;但是,从产期看,中国希望将其经济导向内需。美国共和党中的茶党正在把投资者吓得逃离美元,于是人民币成为国际储备货币的潜力必然日渐提升。

这将有助于中国吸引更多的寻求投资组合多样化的投资者。中国政府债务将成为重要的全球基准资产,这将有助于其私人部门吸引条件有利的资金,而美联储在决定世界货币条件方面的主导力将受到侵蚀。于是,几十年来的生产多极化有可能日益带来货币多极化,人民币将在其中扮演重要角色。

但是,尽管中国拥有独一无二的历史和现实优势,但中国也有劣势,而正是这一劣势导致美国和欧洲深陷泥淖:大银行有不谨慎行事的激励。中国的最新动作表明,尽管当下它可以享受几年的主宰力增长,但其鼓励金融机构走向全球的做法可能导致严重麻烦。

    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.

    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    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.
