国际货币基金组织在欧洲

卡布里奇——

多边借贷方案转了一圈又回到原点,国际货币基金组织在欧元区的救援希腊计划中重起核心作用。在第二次世界大战后结束后早期的日子里,国际货币基金组织的中心任务是帮助欧洲国家从战争的蹂躏中重新站立起来。曾几何时,国际货币基金组织在整个欧洲大陆有好几十项救援计划(如钱荣(Rong Qian)计划,卡门莱因哈特(Carmen Reinhart)计划,以及我新近在主权债务危机毕业方面所作的研究报告中所举出的那些事例)。但是,直到目前这场金融危机爆发前,大多数欧洲人认为他们现在足够富裕了,无法承受请求国际货币基金组织提供经济援助这样的屈辱。

欢迎进入新时代。向国际货币基金组织借贷,并在今后多年内要受其影响,这无疑像是引爆了一枚威力无比的原子弹,而欧洲则正位于爆心投影点上。东欧几个大国,包括匈牙利、罗马尼亚和乌克兰,已经向国际货币基金组织申请了大规模的贷款。现在,欧元区国家已经同意希腊向国际货币基金组织借贷,如果需要的话,申请贷款的国家可能还会有葡萄牙、西班牙、意大利和爱尔兰。

    A Tax Plan that’s All Stuffing?

    US President Donald Trump has set a Christmas deadline for enacting the Republican tax plan, and economic observers are virtually unanimous in judging it a turkey. A scheme that squeezes the middle class and blows out the fiscal and current-account deficits may pass, but it will never fly.

    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.

    The Dangers of Nuclear Bombast

    US President Donald Trump has refused to recertify the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, an agreement that he once predicted would "lead to a nuclear holocaust." Unfortunately, by creating more perverse incentives for hostile regimes to pursue nuclear armaments at all costs, Trump has made the nightmare scenario he fears even more likely.

    Insider Interview

    • With right-wing populists ascendant in Poland and Hungary, and gaining ground elsewhere in the European Union, politics in some parts of the West looks increasingly like politics in Russia.

    • Sławomir Sierakowski, Director of the Institute for Advanced Study in Warsaw interviews Adam Michnik, one of the intellectual architects of Solidarity and of the transition from communism in Central Europe, on Europe's illiberal turn.

    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.
