中国中央计划的结束

北京—“现在难道不正是中国放弃增长目标概念的机会吗?”

这是我在本周举行的中国发展论坛第十五届年会上向中国财政部长楼继伟提出的问题。这次会议聚集了许多中国顶级官员和国际学界代表、跨国组织首脑以及企业高管。我从2000年前总理朱镕基发起该论坛就是参与者,我可以证明,该论坛是中国最重要的讨论平台之一。朱镕基鼓励大家在论坛上交换观点,使其成为中国改革者的真正的智力测试。

我向楼继伟提出这一问题正是出于这种精神。我从20世纪90年代末就认识了他。那段时间他是财政部副部长、中国主权财富基金中投公司创始董事长,现在则是财政部长。他一直是一个直接的人,充满了求知欲,拥有顶级分析思维,极具前瞻意识,是市场改革的支持者。他和他的导师朱镕基一脉相承。

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • In the first year of his presidency, Donald Trump has consistently sold out the blue-collar, socially conservative whites who brought him to power, while pursuing policies to enrich his fellow plutocrats. 

    • Sooner or later, Trump's core supporters will wake up to this fact, so it is worth asking how far he might go to keep them on his side.

    The Man Who Didn’t Save the World

    A Saudi prince has been revealed to be the buyer of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," for which he spent $450.3 million. Had he given the money to the poor, as the subject of the painting instructed another rich man, he could have restored eyesight to nine million people, or enabled 13 million families to grow 50% more food.

    Two Myths About Automation

    While many people believe that technological progress and job destruction are accelerating dramatically, there is no evidence of either trend. In reality, total factor productivity, the best summary measure of the pace of technical change, has been stagnating since 2005 in the US and across the advanced-country world.

    The Hungarian Government’s Failed Campaign of Lies

    The Hungarian government has released the results of its "national consultation" on what it calls the "Soros Plan" to flood the country with Muslim migrants and refugees. But no such plan exists, only a taxpayer-funded propaganda campaign to help a corrupt administration deflect attention from its failure to fulfill Hungarians’ aspirations.
