缓慢增长的美国利率

发自伦敦——跟以往一样,美国联邦储备委员会的新政策声明将在未来一段时间被各界抽丝剥茧,细细咀嚼,因为投资者希望知道利率将在何时及以何种速度提升。值得注意的是,“保持耐心”这个词并没有出现,而美联储已经暗示最快可能在6月提高基准利率。但这一具体措辞所包含的含义远比刚公布的声明文本要少。

事实上,美国货币政策的不确定性一直是今年金融市场波动的主要驱动力。毕竟,加息对美国收益率曲线的潜在效应会对全球所有资产的价格产生重大影响。

但三项因素表明投资者其实是对曲线重新定价的风险过分在意了。首先,经济发展将有可能令美联储在进入加息程序时表现谨慎。其次,即使美联储迅速行动,投资者对收益回报的渴求将锁定收益。第三,市场的技术特征必定会产生对美国国债的强劲需求。

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.
