中国FDI的好处

伯克利—美国两党罕见地合作了。最近,国会通过了旨在鼓励吸引外国直接投资的法案。民主党和共和党都同意,外国直接投资(FDI),即“内包”(insourcing)对美国就业和竞争力至关重要。这是正确的。

但是,尽管他们提出了新的措施吸引外国投资者,许多国会议员(两党都有)仍对来自中国的FDI忧虑重重,其中既有国家安全方面的顾虑,也有经济方面的担心。这类忧虑纯属庸人自扰,采取歧视性政策以限制这类投资更是馊主意。

美国政府已经拥有足够的控制力审查和阻挠来自任何国家的FDI,只要它会带来反竞争和国家安全风险,中国也不例外。符合这些控制要求的投资会给美国经济带来诸多好处,应该受到欢迎。

  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.
