From Jackson Hole Meeting 2015

美联储堪萨斯城分行主办的一年一度的经济年会在本周末进行。每次年会都聚集了多国中央银行行长和全球顶级的经济学家(,但这次会议美联储出席耶伦不会出席)。以下是来自于这次会议的一些信息:

Central Bankers Shouldn’t Yearn for Good Old Days That Never Existed: Fed Conference Paper

The economy is far too complex to be described by simple mathematical models and equations, and the world’s central bankers shouldn’t seek to return to a mythical past when monetary policy was a straightforward affair, economists argued in research presented Saturday at the Kansas City Fed’s symposium in Jackson Hole, Wyo.

Unlike Japan, U.S. and Europe Probably Will Dodge Deflation: Fed Conference Paper

Inflation has remained stubbornly low in the U.S., Japan and the eurozone for years. But while Japan faces a serious possibility of deflation, the risk is far lower for the U.S. and Europe, according to research presented at the Kansas City Fed’s economic symposium in Jackson Hole, Wyo.

Fed’s Fischer: ‘Good Reason’ to Think U.S. Inflation Will Move Higher

The Fed‘s Stanley Fischer said there is “good reason” to think sluggish U.S. inflation will firm and move back toward the U.S. central bank’s 2% annual target, touching on a significant assessment facing the Fed ahead of its September policy meeting.

BOE Remains on Course to Begin Raising Rates Early Next Year, Gov. Carney Says

The Bank of England remains on course to begin slowly raising interest rates early next year despite the recent turmoil in global financial markets, Gov. Mark Carney said.

India’s Rajan: ‘Political Economy’ Important But Quiet Issue for Central Bankers

The role of politics and history is a little-discussed but important force in determining the goals and tactics of economic policy makers, Reserve Bank of India Gov. Raghuram Rajan said.

Fed’s Dudley: Case for September Rate Increase Now Less Compelling

美联储纽约银行主席杜德利(William Dudley)表示九月份加息的必要性降低。

“From my perspective, at this moment, the decision to begin the normalization process at the September FOMC meeting seems less compelling to me than it was a few weeks ago.”

Another “Last Chance” on Greece

在进入周末之前,对希腊问题的一致观点是:在经历了多个“最后机会”之后,本周末的欧洲领导人会议是达成关于希腊问题解决方案的最后机会。(真正的最后一次机会!)但是,今天的消息是,周末的会议被取消了。欧盟各国的领导人们需要继续讨论,直至达成一个可以让所有国家(其实就是德国和法国)的方案。

英国《卫报》报道:

Donald Tusk, the president of the European Council, cancelled an emergency full summit of the 28 countries that was to deal with the fallout from Greece’s ejection, in order to give eurozone leaders a last chance to reach an accord saving Greece and forestalling what would be a devastating schism sowing deep resentment and division between Europe’s leaders.

最后机会……Oops。

Dr House's Oops

更新:欧盟领导人确实在本周末提出了关于希腊问题的提案。这份提案还需要通过希腊系会通过。看来欧洲领导人的效率要比我预期的要高出很多。但是这个提案是否可以长期得到贯彻实行,又是另一个问题了。
