在巨大的资本洪流下生存

尽管面临最近金融市场的动荡,世界经济的能动本质并没有改变。现在的问题不在于怎样应对衰退,而是怎样维持今天全球经济的繁荣以及与之伴随的资本流动。鉴于世界经济预期将持续快速增长,我们将面临极佳的投资机遇,但是这只有在资本能够继续流入能够富有成效地使用它的国家的情况才能实现。

好消息是有些国家拥有庞大的储蓄,它们想把这些储蓄投进其他国家,并且不为市场短期摇摆所动摇。事实上,我们的推测显示,流入新兴市场的总资本额将从1997年亚洲金融危机前的4000-5000亿美元上升到2007年和2008年的8000-9000亿美元。这些资本流入预期将在不远的将来达到1万亿美元的高峰。

从事后来看,1997-1998年间薄弱的银行监管和公司治理加剧了经济紧缩的程度,随后带来了资本流入的“突然停滞”。但是这对今天的中低收入国家面对资本的洪流应该制订怎样的资本账户政策到底有什么启示呢?

    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.
