內容簡介



詳述“美國金融化”對過去與未來全球經濟的為害。

“Foroohar解開美國經濟優勢滑落的秘密,指出競爭性的威脅並非來自外國 – 如移民或中國,而是來自美國本身。她解釋金融是如何滲透到我們經濟與政治生活的各個層面,還有那些造成金融危機的人到最後又是如何從中獲利。” 
--– 諾貝爾經濟學獎得主,美國經濟諮詢委員會前首席/Joseph E. Stiglitz 

2008年發生金融海嘯後,大部份的人都知道,這是因為美國政府無法在次貸危機當中整頓銀行體系,但幾乎沒有人知曉,這個被誤導的金融措施與思維,不只重創全球金融體系,它甚至已經悄悄地潛入了美國所有的企業,逼使我們走上另一條災難之路。

對於”大到不能倒”的銀行,美國雖然已經制定了金融監理細則,但是許多問題還是沒有解決,例如:

-整個美國市場只有15%的資金在實體經濟流動,剩下的一直留在封閉的金融圈當中。
-金融部門獲取所有企業獲利的1/4,但只創造了4%的就業率。
-重債務輕權益的美國稅法,讓企業更容易地將資金藏匿在海外,而不願意在美國做二次投資。
-最大且獲利最多的企業,花更多的錢回購股票,而不是用在創新研究上。

“金融化”導致美國企業寧願做帳面平衡的工程,追求短期獲利,而非創造就業。作者指出美國的金融化已經深深傷害了美國社會,改變這樣的趨勢迫在眉睫。透過書中生動精彩的”掠奪者”與”製造者”的故事,作者告訴我們,改變金融體系是為了更好且更永續的”分享經濟”的未來。

Eight years on from the biggest market meltdown since the Great Depression, the key lessons of the crisis of 2008 still remain unlearned and our financial system is just as vulnerable as ever. Many of us know that our government failed to fix the banking system after the subprime mortgage crisis. But what few of us realize is how the misguided financial practices and philosophies that nearly toppled the global financial system have come to infiltrate ALL American businesses, putting us on a collision course for another cataclysmic meltdown. 

Drawing on in-depth reporting and exclusive interviews at the highest rungs of Wall Street and Washington, "Time" assistant managing editor and economic columnist Rana Foroohar shows how the financialization of America - the trend by which finance and its way of thinking have come to reign supreme - is perpetuating Wall Street's reign over Main Street, widening the gap between rich and poor, and threatening the future of the American Dream. 

Policy makers get caught up in the details of regulating Too Big To Fail banks, but the problems in our market system go much broader and deeper than that. Consider that: 

. Thanks to 40 years of policy changes and bad decisions, only about 15 % of all the money in our market system actually ends up in the real economy the rest stays within the closed loop of finance itself. 

. The financial sector takes a quarter of all corporate profits in this country while creating only 4 % of American jobs. 

. The tax code continues to favor debt over equity, making it easier for companies to hoard cash overseas rather than reinvest it on our shores. 

. Our biggest and most profitable corporations are investing more money in stock buybacks than in research and innovation. 

. And, still, the majority of the financial regulations promised after the 2008 meltdown have yet come to pass, thanks to cozy relationship between our lawmakers and the country s wealthiest financiers.
 
Exploring these forces, which have have led American businesses to favor balancing-sheet engineering over the actual kind and the pursuit of short-term corporate profits over job creation, Foroohar shows how financialization has so gravely harmed our society, and why reversing this trend is of grave importance to us all. Through colorful stories of both "Takers and "Makers, she ll reveal how we change the system for a better and more sustainable shared economic future."
