法国和欧洲的清算之年

巴黎—法国正站在十字路口。它拥有数不尽的无价资产,但它经不起迟到很久的改革的进一步拖延,否则将会日益被竞争激烈的全球经济抛弃。这就是总统奥朗德、总理埃罗和我们所有法国政府官员所必须面对的经济挑战。

我们面对着历史的责任:我们需要实现法国经济的现代化,在接个月时间里引入有十年价值的改革,以创造更强劲、更包容的增长,创造更多的职位,削减公共赤字。这正是今年早些时候大选以来政府所做的事;事实上,没有哪届法国政府可以在如此之短的时间里实施如此之多的改革。

在过去十年中,法国经济表现可谓暗淡无光,特别是在竞争力、债务可持续性、公共支出和劳动市场诸方面。我们的责任是确保我们在2017年本届政府到期时在所有这些领域做得更好。

  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.

    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.
