曲折的复苏之路

纽约-现在存在着这样一种共识,已经持续了一年的美国经济衰退可能会漫长而且深入,而且几乎所有国家都将受到影响。我始终认为,在美国发生的事情和世界其它国家脱钩的观念是一个迷思。一些列事件正在表明,这确实是个迷思。

幸运的是,美国终于有了一位对问题的性质和严重性有一些了解的总统,他坚定不移地执行强有力的刺激计划。再加上其他国家的政府的协调一致的行动,这将意味着经济衰退的严重性将比可能出现的情况要低。

美联储造成的流动性过剩加上疏于监管,推动了危机的发生。因此美联储正在努力用给经济大量增加流动性的方式进行弥补,而此举最多只能阻止事态进一步恶化。那些过去推动问题的出现且未能遇见灾难的人,现在也并未能娴熟地处理已经出现的灾难,可这也并不奇怪。目前看来,经济下滑的势态已经形成,情况在改善之前将会变得更糟。

    The global economy today is dominated by three major players – China, the EU, and the US – with roughly equal trading volumes and limited incentive to fight for the rules-based global trading system. With cooperation unlikely, the world should prepare itself for the erosion of the World Trade Organization.

    The Globalization of Our Discontent

    Globalization, which was supposed to benefit developed and developing countries alike, is now reviled almost everywhere, as the political backlash in Europe and the US has shown. The challenge is to minimize the risk that the backlash will intensify, and that starts by understanding – and avoiding – past mistakes.

    A Better British Story

    Despite all of the doom and gloom over the United Kingdom's impending withdrawal from the European Union, key manufacturing indicators are at their highest levels in four years, and the mood for investment may be improving. While parts of the UK are certainly weakening economically, others may finally be overcoming longstanding challenges.

    The UK’s Multilateral Trade Future

    With Brexit looming, the UK has no choice but to redesign its future trading relationships. As a major producer of sophisticated components, its long-term trade strategy should focus on gaining deep and unfettered access to integrated cross-border supply chains – and that means adopting a multilateral approach.
