人民币崛起势不可挡

北京 ——中国正在不遗余力地推进人民币的国际化。它同巴西签定协议,在双边贸易中使用各自货币进行结算。它同阿根廷、白俄罗斯、香港、印度尼西亚、韩国和马来西亚签定货币互换协议。今年夏天,它在香港和内地五个城市间启动跨境贸易人民币结算,并且授权汇丰控股在香港发行人民币债券。紧接着,在9月,中国财政部在香港发行了60元人民币国债。

这一切举措都是在鼓励进口商、出口商和投资者更多地使用人民币,其目的在于减少中国对美元的依赖,不论是在国内还是在海外。归根结底,是为了让中国有朝一日成为储备货币发行国,获得相应的灵活性和金融特权。

人民币正在崛起,这一点毋庸置疑。促成全球经济多极化的那些原因,亦将促使国际货币体系趋于多极化——由若干种货币分享储备货币地位。鉴于中国经济的体量和增长前景,人民币有朝一日会成为重要的国际货币之一,这一点也毋庸置疑。

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • In the first year of his presidency, Donald Trump has consistently sold out the blue-collar, socially conservative whites who brought him to power, while pursuing policies to enrich his fellow plutocrats. 

    • 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. Had he given the money to the poor, as the subject of the painting instructed another rich man, he could have restored eyesight to nine million people, or enabled 13 million families to grow 50% more food.

    Two Myths About Automation

    While many people believe that technological progress and job destruction are accelerating dramatically, there is no evidence of either trend. In reality, total factor productivity, the best summary measure of the pace of technical change, has been stagnating since 2005 in the US and across the advanced-country world.

    The Hungarian Government’s Failed Campaign of Lies

    The Hungarian government has released the results of its "national consultation" on what it calls the "Soros Plan" to flood the country with Muslim migrants and refugees. But no such plan exists, only a taxpayer-funded propaganda campaign to help a corrupt administration deflect attention from its failure to fulfill Hungarians’ aspirations.
