国的财富正越来越多地从国内流失。

美林全球财富管理与凯捷顾问公司(Merrill Lynch Global Wealth Management and Capgemini)最近发布的《全球财富报告》(World Wealth Report)称,2009年,美国百万富翁的很大一部分好运都要归功于海外市场。

该报告是本年第三份(见此)显示2009年美国百万富 翁人数明显上升的报告。2009年,金融百万富翁(可投资资产不低于100万美元的人)的人数上升了16.5%,使美国的金融百万富翁达到了 2,866,000人。

全世界百万富翁拥有的总财富骤增了18.9%,达到39万亿美元。

在包括美国在内的世界各国国内 生产总值下降的这一年中,富人的财富为何增长得如此之快?原因主要是股票市场。

全球股市市值从32.6万亿美元激增至47.9万亿美元, 使股东(主要是富人)持有的资金增加了15万亿美元以上。

根据该报告,去年欧美的百万富翁将越来越多的资金投资到海外。这让他们可以躲过 本国的麻烦,同时从发展迅速的新兴市场股市获得收益。

2009年,北美的百万富翁将其 持有的美国资产削减了5%。他们的资产组合中仍有76%在美国,但这一数字预计将在2011年降至68%。这听起来可能并没有多少。但从81%降到68% 意味着超过1.3万亿美元正在被富人们从美国转移到拉美、亚洲和世界其他地方。

谁能责怪他们呢?资金会流向收益最高的地方,而新兴市场正 变得比美国或欧洲更加强盛。

然而,资本外逃会产生恶性循环。如果美国经济不扩张,富人就会投资于其他地方,进一步降低增长,导致更多的资 本外逃。

你认为美国能留住更多的富人投资吗?或者说,美国应该留住更多的富人投资吗?
 

America's wealth is increasingly leaving home.

The World Wealth Report out this morning from Merrill Lynch Global Wealth Management and Capgemini says American millionaires owe a large part of their good fortunes in 2009 to overseas markets.

The report is the third this year (see here and here) to show that the number of millionaires in the U.S. rose markedly in 2009. The number of financial millionaires (those with investible assets of $1 million or more) rose 16.5% in 2009, leaving the country with 2,866,000 financial millionaires.

The total wealth of the world's millionaires leapt 18.9% to $39 trillion.

How did the rich get so much richer in a year when the gross domestic products of countries around the world, including the U.S., sank? Stock markets, largely.

Global stock-market capitalization surged to $47.9 trillion from $32.6 trillion, adding more than $15 trillion to the coffers of shareholders (largely, the wealthy).

According to the report, millionaires in Europe and the U.S. plowed increasing amounts of their money overseas last year. That enabled them to bypass troubles at home and reap the benefits of burgeoning stock-markets in emerging markets.

North American millionaires cut their U.S. holdings 5% in 2009. They still had 76% of their portfolios in the U.S., but that number is expected to decline to 68% in 2011. That may not sound like a lot. But a drop from 81% to 68% means that more than $1.3 trillion is being re-directed by the wealthy from the U.S. to Latin America, Asia and other parts of the world.

Who can blame them? Capital moves where it is treated best, and emerging markets are getting much stronger than the U.S. or Europe.

Yet the flight of capital could create a vicious cycle. If the U.S. economy isn't expanding, the wealthy will invest elsewhere, reducing growth further, and leading to more capital flight.

How do you think the U.S. can keep more of the investments of the wealthy? Or should it?
