G20

G20在華盛頓召開,雖然外間對具體成果有很大疑問,不過具體還是取得了一些成效。

雖然布殊一再反對由薩爾科齊提出,加大力度監管自由市場,不過禍因既然是由美國而起,美國也早就預了受到批評,布殊姿態上亦需要作出讓步。雖然他一方面強調資本主義及自由貿易的重要性,但也接受了以三月底作為期限,由各國按自身的情況,提出加強監管市場的構思,避免海嘯重演。

當然四月再召開的高峰會,時間上已經由布殊過渡至奧巴馬,可以讓應掌權的人來決定金融市場的新秩序,以及對市場作出何種程度的監管。

不過會議對於評級機構的角色,就有較一致睇法,認同呢個海嘯的「罪魁禍首」,的確需要更大程度的監管及干預,避免再出現雷曼倒閉的悲劇。

一個較大突破,是多國終於認清了目前總值三十三萬億美元的違約信貸掉期CDS市場,需要更規範的監管,多國決定聯手施壓,要求CME及 NYSE Euronext在內的交易所,成立中央結算所,一方面可以吸收同業之間虧損,同時亦讓這些只懂賺大錢的對沖基金,是時候負上應負的責任。

中國及印度雖然在會議上保持低調,但他們參與了今次會議,正正就是告訴全世界,新秩序之中已經不單再由西方社會主導,新興市場將會是一股不可逆轉的力量。

雖然會議對很多金融市場的漏洞,只是提出了一個架構式的監管方向,不過面對海嘯沖毀後的金融市場,至少作出了應有的努力及關注,我們認是步出正面的第一步。

The programme is good but the host, especcially the one who chair the meeting, always cut into the guest's saying which makes the viewers not easy to have the views passing through.
Also, sometimes the background music is too loud to sink into the conversations of the programme. Hope it can be improved soon.

Indeed, is that any one know that why those credit rating agents like S&P and Moodys seems didn't have any accusation in? Apparently, they are playing the main role in the crisis.

Because they are US company. Very simple. Beside Bear Stern and Lehman Brother, did other I banks and big bank like Cities Group and AIG receive any accusation from the government or public.
