中国政策的不协调状态

发自纽黑文——中国在2013年的最后几个月里发表了多项政策声明。从11月初在十八届三中全会上提出60点改革方案,到一个月后在中央经济工作会议上提出的六个核心任务,中国领导人提出了一系列新措施来解决国家未来几年所面临的严峻挑战。

但从整体来看,政策不连贯的风险却越发明显。例如三中全会的各项提案都有一个战略重点——推进中国经济期待已久的消费结构调整。而中央经济工作会议的核心任务上体现了这些改革精神的同时,也提出其战术重点:“维持稳步增长。”考虑战略与战术之间可能出现的取舍问题——也就是长期改革和短期增长之间的权衡——中国决策者能真正实现他们的所有目标吗?

当然,这种取舍在大多数经济体中长期存在——发达国家和发展中国家都一样。而中国与它们的不同之处,在于该国一直极端倾向于把重点放在规划其经济发展道路的战略目标上。

  3. Murdoch's Last Stand?

    Rupert Murdoch’s sale of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney for $66 billion may mark the end of the media mogul’s career, which will long be remembered for its corrosive effect on democratic discourse on both sides of the Atlantic. 

    From enabling the rise of Donald Trump to hacking the telephone of a murdered British schoolgirl, Murdoch’s media empire has staked its success on stoking populist rage.

    The Dangerous Delusion of Price Stability

    Since the hyperinflation of the 1970s, which central banks were right to combat by whatever means necessary, maintaining positive but low inflation has become a monetary-policy obsession. But, because the world economy has changed dramatically since then, central bankers have started to miss the monetary-policy forest for the trees.

  5. Harvard’s Jeffrey Frankel Measures the GOP’s Tax Plan

    Jeffrey Frankel, a professor at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and a former member of President Bill Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisers, outlines the five criteria he uses to judge the efficacy of tax reform efforts. And in his view, the US Republicans’ most recent offering fails miserably.

But ensuring that those changes are positive – helping to fight tumors and mosquito-borne illnesses, for example – will require scientists to apply the utmost caution.
