重新平衡国家资产负债表

发自米兰——直到最近,人们对世界各国资产负债表的关注一直都较少。对这些数据的测算和报告都被忽略了。而即使是在各国负债状况受到外界普遍关注的今天,其资产状况依旧鲜有人问津。

从前各国都拥有大量的工业资产。但这种“占据经济制高点”的模式由于其严重表现不佳而遭到了摈弃,尤其当国有企业在竞争中受到保护时(这已经成为常态)。效率因此降低。但更重要的是,缺少企业的进入或退出——这才是创新的关键组成部分——导致经济活力不足,其损失也随着时间的推移而不断增大。

这种模式的缺点导致很多发达及发展中国家进行私有化。在欧洲,私有化被看作是一体化进程的关键步骤。欧洲和其他地区的理念是国家不可能成为工业资产的无私持有者。借助相关法律法规、政府采购以及隐性津贴,政府会偏帮它们自己名下的资产。

    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.
