什么是欧元危机?

法兰克福——危机的构成要素是什么?是经济的持续衰退、长期的高失业率、贫困、恶性通货膨胀、汇率的急剧下降、财政赤字、借贷成本高、还是政治问题?大部分人都认为,如果此类“痛苦指数”中的某些问题出现,就会引发危机。然而,虽然普遍认为欧洲正面临危机,但欧洲只是存在少数几个问题,而且此危机只存在于几个欧元区国家。

那么,欧元区为什么会出现经济危机呢?该危机又是如何界定的呢?人们屡次争辩称,单一货币不符合各成员国迥然各异的需求,而且非持续性经济分歧最终将要求欧元区放弃欧元。

最常提到的致命分歧包括增长率、创造就业、失业率之间的差异以及经常账户余额之间的巨大差距,所有这一切都可能会追溯到单元劳动成本之间的巨大差异。此分歧给问题国家带来相当大的风险溢价问题,这不可避免地会加快资本向安全地区外逃的速度。

    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.

    Rage Against the Elites

    • With the advantage of hindsight, four recent books bring to bear diverse perspectives on the West’s current populist moment. 
    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    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.
