瓦鲁法基斯的大博弈

慕尼黑—博弈论专家知道,只有A计划永远是不行的。你必须制定和事先布局可信的B计划——推动A计划谈判的隐含威胁。希腊财政部长雅尼斯·瓦鲁法基斯(Yanis Varoufakis)对于这一点心知肚明。作为希腊政府推出的“重磅”,在总理齐普拉斯出面谈判A计划时(延长希腊的贷款协议并重新谈判援助计划条件),瓦鲁法基斯正致力于B计划(可能退出欧元区)。从某种角度讲,他们在玩“好警察/坏警察”的经典博弈——并且到目前为止收效甚好。

B计划有两个关键要素。首先是简单的挑衅,旨在煽动希腊公民,从而加剧希腊与其债权人的紧张。希腊公民必然认为,如果他们在因为退出欧元区而导致的困难时期继续信任他们的政府,就可以摆脱严重的不公。

其次,希腊政府正在推高B计划对另一端的成本,办法是允许资本随希腊公民外逃。如果选择如此,希腊政府可以用更加安抚性的方针遏制这一趋势,或通过引入资本管制一刀切解决这一问题。但这样做会削弱其谈判立场,而这不是选项之一。

    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. 
    • But moving beyond Xi's anti-corruption purge to build robust and lasting anti-graft institutions will not be easy, owing to enduring opportunities for bureaucratic capture.

    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.
