Chartbook Audio #1 – 2019 FT Alphachat with Mark Blyth and Brendan Greeley

Back in February 2019 I sat down with two friends – Mark Blyth of Brown University (he of “austerity” and “angrynomics”) and Brendan Greeley of the FT – to talk about political economy, the 1970s, the “China shock”. It was a really good conversation. Recalling the scene – I think it was in my Columbia office – it seem as though it comes from another world. But the content has stood up well.

World War I and the Reconstruction of the Global Order with Huang Yanjie ‘The Paper’

亚当·图兹谈第一次世界大战与全球秩序的重建 一百年前,一个新的世界秩序在第一次世界大战的废墟上艰难地建立起来,然后很快就在纷至沓来的金融危机、法西斯运动和二次世界大战中分崩离析。多年来,我们对于一战后秩序重建的历史认识一直受制于二战的后见之明:冥顽不灵的克列孟梭、理想主义的威尔逊和料事如神的凯恩斯。亚当·图兹(Adam Tooze)正是要挑战这一常识。他认为,一战后的欧洲政治精英对时事的判断远超威尔逊和凯恩斯,但后者比前者更能代表历史的长期趋势。他告诫他的欧洲史同行,认识一战及其以后的秩序首先要注意美国的兴起,正如理解当代史必须留意中国崛起。从外部看,美国似乎已经是一个巨人。一战使美国成为全球政治和金融执牛耳者,而美国经济已然成为世界各国必须面对的挑战。从内部看,美国只是一个少年。美国内战的伤痕尚未愈合,而国家政权建设方兴未艾,无力进行全球扩张。面对一战前后才出现的全球治理挑战,美国在理想与现实中徘徊,直到二战彻底打破旧世界,才得以用凯恩斯主义重构内外秩序。亚当·图兹教授的《滔天洪水:第一次世界大战与全球秩序的重建》仿佛让我们回到一战后期与战后的历史现场,在结构性的力量与历史人物之间、在偶然事件和历史趋势之间,发现上世纪中期世界战争与革命的根源。 Read the full interview with Huang Yanjie at The Paper.
