纽约—2008年的全球金融市场经历了自从二十世纪三十年代大萧条以来最严重的危机。有许多大型金融机构破产,另外一些以非常低廉的价格被收购或者在巨额融资后方才得以生存。全球股票市场下跌超过50%,利率差急剧扩大,出现了严重的流动性和信用紧缩,还有许多新兴市场经济体不得不向国际货币基金组织求助。

那么2009年的情况会怎样呢?最糟糕的时候是已经过去了还是尚未到来?要回答这些问题,我们必须认识到经济紧缩的恶性循环和持续恶化的财政状况还远未结束。

    Whither the Multilateral Trading System?

    The global economy today is dominated by three major players – China, the EU, and the US – with roughly equal trading volumes and limited incentive to fight for the rules-based global trading system. With cooperation unlikely, the world should prepare itself for the erosion of the World Trade Organization.

    The Globalization of Our Discontent

    Globalization, which was supposed to benefit developed and developing countries alike, is now reviled almost everywhere, as the political backlash in Europe and the US has shown. The challenge is to minimize the risk that the backlash will intensify, and that starts by understanding – and avoiding – past mistakes.

    A Better British Story

    Despite all of the doom and gloom over the United Kingdom's impending withdrawal from the European Union, key manufacturing indicators are at their highest levels in four years, and the mood for investment may be improving.
