特朗普正在杀死美元吗?

圣芭芭拉—近一个世纪以来,美元一直被视为金融界的终极避风港。没有任何一种其他货币能够为积累的财富提供如此程度的安全和流动性。在此前的危机时期,惊慌失措的投资者和审慎的央行都竭尽全力囤积美元计价资产,包括美国国债。这一幕可能不会再发生了。

美国总统特朗普的混乱的管理严重损害了人们对美元的信心。自从在数以百万计的幽灵人群(phantom crowd)面前宣誓就职以来,特朗普向一个又一个政府开火,其中包括澳大利亚和德国等盟友。最近,他又与朝鲜独裁者金正恩交上了火,将世界推向核战争的边缘。

    Restoring Central Banks’ Credibility

    Larry Hatheway

    The old central-bank playbook of slashing interest rates to spur consumption, investment, and employment has become less effective since the 2008 financial crisis. Yet without effective tools and the public's confidence, central banks will be unable to rise to the occasion when the next recession arrives.

    The Day After NATO

    Joschka Fischer

    French President Emmanuel Macron has drawn criticism for describing NATO as brain dead and pursuing a rapprochement with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
