中国国家资产负债表到底有没有风险?

北京 – 近期三份有关中国国家资负债表的研究报告引发人们的高度关注。三份报告(德意志银行、中行、社科院)从不同的角度测算了国家资产负债,但三者所得出的结论却分歧较大。我们到底该如何看待中国庞大的“正净资产”,又该如何评估中国的债务风险?

回顾全球债务危机的历史,在过去200多年时间里,全球至少发生了250次以上的主权债务违约,68次国内债务违约,债务违约几乎每隔几年或十几年就集中爆发一次。历史上,债务违约往往不是孤立事件,总是与经常项目逆差、本币汇率高估、公共部门债务高企、财政亏空、外汇储备不足等因素相互交织,共同触发危机。从墨西哥金融危机(1994)、亚洲金融危机(1997)、到后来的俄罗斯(1998)、巴西金融危机(1999),再到2008年美国次贷危机及仍在进行中的欧洲主权债务危机。

改革开放至今,中国也出现过四次较大规模的财政赤字和政府债务问题。1978年后的债务问题,主要是中央财政赤字;1988年后的债务问题,主要是企业间“三角债”;1998年后的债务问题,主要是国企经营问题造成的金融机构坏账;2008年后中国地方债风险、企业债务风险也在不断累积。

    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.

    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.
