Vol.4 第2章-2  

 他方、1931年のdisasterでは、容易な解決策は無かったが、ハイパーインフレーション(参考:In today’s debt crisis, Germany is the US of 1931 | @flindner23)などを引き起こした愚策の後の銀行のバランスシートの悪化が原因であると明白であった。メガバンクが崩壊した欧州が、小規模地域銀行が主体の米国での不安を煽って、崩壊に導いたと言える。
 一つの解決策としては、1944年のブレトンウッズ会議(参考:Establishment of the Bretton Woods System | @AtlantaFed)での中心的議題であった、逆行しているカネの流れの封じ込めがあったが、民主主義の時代には難しかった。
 もう一つは、1930年代にゴットフリート・ハバーラー(Gottfried Haberler (by @mises))など何人かから指摘された、固定為替制は通貨危機に対して脆弱であるので、為替変動制に移行することであったが、金融制度の未発展国の国民は自国では自国通貨を長期的に調達することができず、常に為替変動リスクに晒されるというものである。尤も、21世紀初頭には、1929回避のための通貨政策と共に、1931回避のための金融機関なども整備されてきた。

“The Creation and Destruction of Value” 価値の創造と破壊 Vol.3

(All the below links are in English.)

Vol.3 1929年と1931年(第2章ー1)

 1929年の崩壊は、公開市場操作(参考:Open Market Operations (OMOs))による流動性の増加(参考:Market Liquidity)と伝統的な通貨政策(参考:The Federal Reserve’s Unconventional Policies)という二つの非常にもっともな解決策があったが、原因は未だ解明されていない。正確には、原因の合理的な説明として二つ可能性のあるものがあるが、必ずしも満足なものではない。

 もう一つは、個人や会社がカネを借りる際の担保がパニックにより減り、世界大恐慌の特徴とされる(証券投資などに回すために銀行から預金が大量に引き出される)金融仲介機能の崩壊(参考:Credit Availability and the Collapse of the Banking Sector in the 1930s)を引き起こしたというもの。しかし、ロバート・シラー教授(参考:Yale@RobertJShillerProjectSyndicate)も言うように、歴史的比較からの崩壊の想起無くしては語れない。欧州やアジアにパニックが広がらなかったのが驚きではあるにしても。

“The Creation and Destruction of Value” 価値の創造と破壊 Vol.2

 globalization グローバリゼーションとそれによる反動・崩壊の傾向は、以下のとおりです。
 6.価値の再評価には、deflation デフレーションinflation インフレーション、そしてその両者が同時に起きる統合失調的状態のような通貨の(monetary)根本的な不安定さも含まれる。
 7.この不安定さは、gold standard 金本位制であれ管理通貨制であれ、通貨の管理のための専門的力量につき疑問を想起させる。
 8.そこで、今日、人々は、1920年代30年代のGreat Depression 世界大恐慌を回想することとなる。

 即ち、一方で、二度の世界大戦、東西冷戦、断続的な地域紛争などを経て、科学技術は相当に、人々の意識も一定程度発達して、先の見通しが立ち易くなった面はあります。他方、大震災や原発事故、伝染病、欧州移民などの従来からの問題、 また、気候変動や水不足、テロリズムなど新たな問題も生じ、経済への影響が時々刻々出ています。結局、経済に完全な見通しや客観的な正解は無く、あくまで一定程度の見通しや理解が必要とされると考えて良いのです。
