长期停滞的问题

德里—在美联储前主席伯南克(Ben Bernanke)和美国财政部前部长萨默斯(Larry Summers)关于长期停滞可能性的最新交流中,双方都同意需要从全球角度看待这一问题。但从这个角度看2008年全球金融危机前的长期停滞假说与核心事实不符:全球增长平均达到了4%以上,是有记录以来的最高值。

伯南克的假说——慢增长反映了“全球储蓄过剩”也存在同样的问题。从凯恩斯主义角度看,储蓄的增加无法解释21世纪初世界经济活动的猛然活跃。

长期停滞假说的支持者似乎看错了问题。从真正的长期和全球角度看,困难在于解释危机前的繁荣。更准确地说,困难在于解释三大全球发展趋势的合一:增长(而非停滞)猛增、通胀下降,以及真实(经通胀调整的)利率降低。对着三大发展趋势的可信解释必须淡化纯粹的总需求框架,聚焦于新兴市场特别是中国的崛起。

    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.
