¿Los bancos de China son los próximos?

WASHINGTON, DC – El reciente episodio de política disfuncional de Estados Unidos y la crisis intermitente de la eurozona deberían, a priori, representar una oportunidad dorada para China. Sin duda, el malestar en Estados Unidos y Europa probablemente afecte las exportaciones chinas; pero, en el largo plazo, China pretende reorientar su economía hacia el consumo doméstico. Ahora que el ala del Tea Party del Partido Republicano de Estados Unidos asusta a los inversores y los hace abandonar el dólar, el interés en el potencial del renminbi chino como moneda de reserva internacional no puede más que aumentar.

Esto ayudará a China a atraer más inversores que buscan diversificar sus carteras. La deuda del gobierno chino se convertirá en un activo de referencia global importante, lo que debería ayudar a su sector privado a atraer financiamiento en términos razonables, mientras que la predominancia de la Reserva Federal de Estados Unidos a la hora de determinar las condiciones monetarias mundiales supuestamente se reduciría. El cambio, que ya lleva varias décadas, hacia un mundo multipolar para la industria podría en consecuencia derivar en un mundo más multipolar para las monedas, en el que el renminbi pasaría a ser un actor preponderante.  

Sin embargo, a pesar de su historia única y sus ventajas actuales, China esconde una debilidad que es bastante similar a lo que causó tanto problema en Estados Unidos y Europa: los bancos grandes con un incentivo para no ser cuidadosos. Las últimas medidas de China sugieren que si bien ahora puede gozar de algunos años de mayor prominencia, el hecho de que aliente a sus instituciones financieras a volverse globales probablemente conduzca a serios problemas.

    Angela Merkel’s Endgame?

    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

    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.
