布雷顿森林体系II看起来应该是什么样子?

纽约-对我们当中长期以来声称国际金融体系需要进行深刻改革的人来说,布雷顿森林体系II的倡议是很受欢迎的。当然,在1997年到1998年的亚洲和俄罗斯危机以后,有人提出了类似的倡议,但是这些倡议都没有得到富裕工业国家的认真对待。当前,这些富裕的工业国家处在金融风暴的中心地带,或许它们现在会对这个倡议认真起来。

当前,进行国际金融体系改革的呼吁存在两个基本问题。首先,它缺乏内容:最终的布雷顿森林体系II要讨论什么,还不清楚。其次,这个过程是以将绝大多数国家排除在会谈之外的错误方式开始的。显然,对G-7或G-7的一部分成员国来说,这对显示它们的领导地位是有好处的,但是,在没有给予工业国家以及发展中国家,大国以及小国足够的发言权的 包含过程 的情况下,根本性的改革是不可能出现的。是全球性机构,而不是是临时性的国家集团,是国际金融体系改革活动的中心。

现在,最明确的问题是要纠正全球金融市场表现出来的监管缺位。改革全球金融体系的讨论应该以同意监管原则为开端。一个显而易见的原则是监管必须全面,以避免产生导致当前的金融动荡的大量漏洞。

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • In the first year of his presidency, Donald Trump has consistently sold out the blue-collar, socially conservative whites who brought him to power, while pursuing policies to enrich his fellow plutocrats. 

    • Sooner or later, Trump's core supporters will wake up to this fact, so it is worth asking how far he might go to keep them on his side.

    The Man Who Didn’t Save the World

    A Saudi prince has been revealed to be the buyer of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," for which he spent $450.3 million. Had he given the money to the poor, as the subject of the painting instructed another rich man, he could have restored eyesight to nine million people, or enabled 13 million families to grow 50% more food.

    Two Myths About Automation

    While many people believe that technological progress and job destruction are accelerating dramatically, there is no evidence of either trend. In reality, total factor productivity, the best summary measure of the pace of technical change, has been stagnating since 2005 in the US and across the advanced-country world.
