驯服私募投资基金“蝗虫”

由美国不良抵押贷款所导致金融危机的全部影响尚不明确,但始料未及的结果之一便是对金融市场更高透明度和更完善调控的不可遏止的需求。

私募投资基金和对冲基金是金融市场中可以不受透明度和信息披露法则监管的一个领域,而银行和共同基金却无一例外地要受到上述法则的严格管辖。私募投资基金曾几何时规模都相对有限,但如今最大五家的资本规模就连俄国和印度的年度预算都难以企及。今天私募投资基金和对冲基金的资产已经达到3万亿之巨,而且截止到2010年底预计将达到10万亿美元的规模。这些基金现在在很大程度上来源于养老基金的投入,依靠来自银行和其他非私有渠道的资金借贷来维持正常运转。

事实上,这些私有基金在全部新增债务中占据了约三分之二的份额。因此,如果产生了像美国抵押贷款危机这样的债务问题,人们就必须正视私有基金在其中所起到的作用。简言之,它们对金融稳定构成了重要的挑战,而且除非得到有效的控制,否则它们很可能会加剧未来的危机。

    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.
