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。

危机爆发后不久,G20国家纷纷采取大规模刺激计划、发达经济体的非常规货币政策以及美国多德-弗兰克等金融改革法和旨在加强银行监管和稳健运行的巴塞尔III计划等重大制度性措施。中国在2008年11月推出了四万亿人民币的刺激计划,重振了全球商品市场的信心。在中国强劲增长的带动下,新兴市场开始企稳。

2009年以来,美联储的量化宽松(QE)给全世界带来了创纪录的低利率。但是,由此产生的流向新兴市场的资本流虽然刺激了经济增长,也带来了资产泡沫。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Rage Against the Elites

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
