中国编织美国的思维陷阱

纽黑文—外推法的诱惑难以抵挡。趋势会对市场、决策者、家庭和企业施加强大的影像。但目光敏锐的观察者明白线性思维的局限性,因为他们知道,线会弯曲,有时甚至会断开。在今天评估决定全球经济的两大因素——与美国政策和中国经济状况有关的风险——就是如此。

量化宽松,即QE(美联储购买长期资产的月度计划),是以高尚的姿态开始的——正逢其时,并且被巧妙地描述为美联储为了根治严重危机而采取的猛药。反驳总能找到破绽,但你很难否认2008年末到2009年初的流动性注入对于将世界救出远比大衰退更严重的局面起到了重要作用。

定向资金便利与首轮量化宽松导致2009年3月美联储资产负债表规模飙升至2.3万亿美元,而在2008年夏危机爆发前夕只有9,000亿美元。因危机而深度冻结的市场开始解冻。

    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.
