认真对待系统性风险

华盛顿—关于世界金融体系,有两种主导观点。第一种观点大多来自全球大银行及其阵营的高管,认为世界金融体系比以往任何时候都更加安全。根据这一观点,导致2008年爆发的全球金融危机的事件永远不会再发生了;改革进程已经取得了成功。

相反,越来越多的现任和前任官员继续表示对存在于美国、欧洲和全球的当前及潜在未来风险的担忧。美国财政部长杰克·卢(Jack Lew)在最近的国会听证中表示了这一担忧,并解释了为何应该让金融稳定监督委员会(Financial Stability Oversight Council,简称SFOC)考虑某个企业或某种活动是否可能给整个体系造成风险。

而一个新的声音也加入了战团——证券和交易委员会(Securities and Exchange Commission,简称SEC)主席卡拉·斯坦(Kara Stein)。斯坦在6月做了一次意义深刻的讲话,在讲话中,她指出系统风险必须成为金融市场监管者更加核心的责任。

    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

    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.
