是什么在阻碍世界经济?

发自纽约——全球金融危机在2008年爆发七年后的2015年,世界经济依然萎靡。根据联合国发布的《2016年世界经济形势与展望》报告,自危机以来发达经济体的平均增长率下降了超过54 %。据估计这些国家现有约4400万失业人口,较2007年多了1200万,而通胀则已经下探到自危机以来的最低水平。

更令人担忧的,发达国家的增长速度也变得更为不稳定。这是有点出人意料,因为这些完全开放资本账户的经济体本应从资本的自由流动和国际风险分担中获益——并因此只会经历小范围的宏观经济波动。此外,包括失业救济金在内的各类社会转移支付手段应该​​也可依然让家庭维持自身的消费水平。

但在后危机时期的主要政策——各大中央银行的财政紧缩和定量宽松——在刺激居民消费,投资和增长方面没有多大帮助,反而让事态变得更加糟糕。

    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.
