新兴市场天堂的麻烦

纽约—在过去几年中,人们寄厚望于金砖国家(巴西、俄罗斯、印度、中国和南非)。这些国家人口多、增长快,因此将很快跻身于世界最大经济体的行列,而中国最早可能在2020年成为世界第一大经济体。但金砖国家和许多其他新兴市场经济体一样,最近经历了大规模经济减速。蜜月期就这样结束了吗?

巴西GDP去年只增长了1%,今年可能也不会超过2%,而其潜在增长率也不过3%上下。俄罗斯经济今年增长率能达到2%便已勉强,潜在增长率也在3%左右,尽管石油价格徘徊在每桶100美元。印度近两年增长强劲(2010年11.2%,2011年7.7%),但2012年放缓至4%。中国经济在过去三十年中每年都能增长10%,但去年降至7.8%,并有硬着陆之患。南非去年只增长了2.5%,今年也不会超过2%。

许多其他先前快速增长的新兴经济体——比如土耳其、阿根廷、波兰、匈牙利和许多中欧和东欧国家——也在经历类似的减速。是什么羁绊了金砖国家和其他新兴市场?

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls. 
    • But moving beyond Xi's anti-corruption purge to build robust and lasting anti-graft institutions will not be easy, owing to enduring opportunities for bureaucratic capture.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.

    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.
