银行的资本之战

巴黎——如今,几乎所有人都同意银行需要更多的资本。克里斯汀·拉加德选择将这一点作为IMF总裁新官上任的第一把火。传统金融危机分析将也注意力放在众多银行孱弱的资本金上,资本金过少让它们在2007—2008年资产价格暴跌时缺乏足够的储备来吸收所发生的损失。

纳税人,特别是美国和英国的纳税人,被迫站出来填补这一漏洞。如今,同样的灾难在欧元区上演了。唯一的希望是银行家最终被萨科齐大帝和默克尔天后救活,同时巴塞尔银行监督委员会站出来确保下不为例。

巴塞尔委员会打算大举强化全球银行体系的资本数量和质量。这将意味着所有银行都必须持有比现在多得多的核心权益,并按当地监管当局要求持有各种附加储备——包括留存资本缓冲、反周期缓冲以及具有系统重要性的机构的额外缓冲。不幸的是,这些新规则的最终实施日期已经排到了2019年,而且即使到那时,仍会有一部分银行逃脱束缚。

  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.

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.
