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?

How to Improve the Doctor-Patient Relationship - Part 2

The doctor-patient relationship is a matter of great importance in Taiwan. Once we have a clue, its not that hard to improve. 二、思考方向: 減少健保給付項目:要有改革的道德勇氣。除了前述已有同成分劑量劑型的學名藥之原廠藥價外並且提高藥品自付額以減少台灣特有的「藥不拿白不拿」的惡習之外,更不能被可憐的罕病故事牽著鼻子走。病人永遠是值得同情的,罕見疾病的家庭更是。但是,如果沒搞懂社會保險與個案救助之間的本質差異,必將拖累大局。 提高承擔重責之醫護待遇:要改善五大科(內外婦兒急)皆空之現象,必須先從尊重著手。打高空沒有用,香蕉只能餵猴子,這是最基本的道理。健保必須善用如前述所節省下來的經費,提高特定項目之點值並強制醫療院所將增額分配給醫護人員、並且為其投保責任險(詳下述);請他們重新念十遍希波克拉提斯誓詞,不如從這裡做起。 醫療過失責任保險必須普及:一方面擴大「業務上之正當行為,不罰」的阻卻違法事由之判斷,讓醫護除非有惡意之怠忽職務,否則不必擔心刑責;另一方面,則更不能阻礙病家循民事司法求償之權利。但是,倘若不能循私人責任保險的機制處理,那麼光是訴訟以及因而帶來的賠償風險,就會妨礙頂尖人才加入醫護的行列,更非全民之福。台灣的產險公司向來對於責任險種之開辦興趣缺缺,有其歷史成因,不在此贅論;但是,台灣市場一直以來除非像汽車的責任險因有強制規定,否則多半保戶太少,風險亦無從分散,賠償上限也太低。這部分,是稍修法令(比方說,按一定基礎投保醫療責任險的醫事單位,給付點值可以作對應的向上調整等等)就能輕易完成的事情,各家產險公司的意願問題,更可以由金管會把他們約來喝咖啡解決。 醫病關係何等大的事情,但只要抓到頭緒去整理,並不難解。惟醫糾法這種「頭痛醫膝蓋」的作法,可悲可嘆。
