The IMF's Moment

华盛顿特区-世界正处在前所未有的金融危机之中,其影响涉及到所有的国家。国家间互相协调后已采取了规模和范围都属独特的措施,以恢复市场信心并减少危机对世界经济造成的损害。美国总统布什已邀请世界各国领导人于11月15日在华盛顿举行首脑会议,以规划一个可以防止这样的危机重演的新金融架构。国际货币基金这个全球唯一的有着保护金融的稳定责任的机构,可以发挥核心作用。

对国际金融体系的改革重点应放在改善金融监督、创造更加透明的金融市场、对金融危机的有效的早期预警系统以及更好的国际政策的协调方面。

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • Sooner or later, Trump's core supporters will wake up to this fact, so it is worth asking how far he might go to keep them on his side.

    The Man Who Didn’t Save the World

    A Saudi prince has been revealed to be the buyer of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," for which he spent $450.3 million.

    Two Myths About Automation

    While many people believe that technological progress and job destruction are accelerating dramatically, there is no evidence of either trend.
