Glut of Everything

2015 - 04 - 26

This analysis from Wall Street Journal is very interesting. The glut of money has widened the gap between the rich and the poor.


這篇WSJ的分析挺有趣的。全球富人的錢這十幾年多到滿出來,貧富不均日趨嚴重。這件事情大家都知道,也讓「你長財富、不漲我薪水」這件事成為議題。


Global oversupply extends beyond commodities, elevating deflation risk

The global economy is awash as never before in commodities like oil, cotton and iron ore, but also with capital and labor—a glut that presents several challenges as policy makers struggle to stoke demand.

但是,各種生產資源、大宗商品的供給也多到滿出來,像是石油、棉花與鐵砂,價格自然不斷下滑,而民生消費品和耐久財的情形也一樣,庫存水位不斷升高,這些對於通縮會有影響的因素,鄉民們就較少關注了。

更少被注意到的,則是全球勞動力的供給也多到滿出來。

“The fall of the Soviet Union and the rise of China added over one billion workers to the world’s labor force, meaning workers everywhere face global competition for jobs and wages.”

蘇聯垮台加中國崛起,提供了十億名的勞工。當他們加入勞動力供給的市場時,公司老闆該怎麼抉擇?是轉用那邊的低價勞動力好,還是砍你薪水好?

再者,依近10年中國經濟成長率變化圖所示,中國經濟成長率下滑,負債比也像美歐日一樣飆昇,各種刺激政策的有效性開始漸受質疑,各國政府都在擔心,現在坐在駕駛座上油門全踩,但是車子還是跑不動,接下來該怎麼辦?

The Medical Care Act - Missing The Point, Causing Disputes

Taiwan’s National Health Insurance is already the envy of the world. But the worsening relationships between doctors and patients and the shortage of doctors in major departments has also been the biggest threats. 台灣健保已是舉世稱羨之制度,但是,醫病關係之惡化、以及內外婦兒急五大科的醫師荒,也是目前台灣的重大隱憂。 冰凍三尺非一日之寒,化三尺之凍亦非旦夕之功。然而,一個根本搞不清楚方向的跛腳政府,卻為了曲意討好選民,推了「醫療糾紛處理及醫療事故補償法」(簡稱「醫糾法」),我們相信為其核心的強制調解的作法,等同頭痛醫腳,只會帶來催生糾紛、深化醫病對立之效果。 其實,回歸本質思考,這個影響社會安定至鉅、卻又莫衷一是的難題並非無解。我們非常市儈地認為,必須以「財源」之規劃作為核心,才不會治絲益棼。謹在此拋磚引玉,提出三個解決問題的思考方向(如下A, B, C三點),就教於各界。但在提出之前,必須先表明我們的五項認知基礎:…
