从雷曼兄弟身上吸取教训

香港—五年前,当美国投行雷曼兄弟倒闭时,新兴市场经济体并未大量持有助长随后全球金融危机的有毒金融资产(主要是美国次级按揭贷款)。但世界贸易却出现了断崖式下降(超过15%),贸易融资也急剧收缩(因为美元流动性短缺),这给新兴市场经济体带来了严重影响。

    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.
