But with so much easy money sloshing around in global markets, new threats were bound to emerge — in places the regulators aren’t watching as closely. Within the $290 trillion global financial markets, there are hundreds of new risks, pools of potentially troubled debt. Among the most troubling: corporate borrowers and so-called non-bank lenders all over the world. As bank lending dried up, more and more companies began raising money by selling bonds, and many of those bonds are now held by these non-bank lenders — mainly money managers such as bond funds, pension funds or insurance companies. Among corporations listed on the S.&P. 500 index, debt has tripled since 2010 to one and a half times annual earnings — near the historic peaks reached during the recessions of the early 1990s and 2000s. And in some parts of the bond markets, debt loads are much higher. One of the big corporate risks is developing largely beyond regulatory oversight. Some United States companies that were publicly traded in 2008 have since gone private, often precisely in order to avoid intensified scrutiny from regulators. Many of those companies were purchased by private equity firms, in deals that leave the companies saddled with huge debts. Right now the typical American company owned by a private equity firm has debt six times higher than its annual earnings — or twice the level that a public ratings agency would consider high-risk or “junk.” At a time when central banks are holding interest rates at record lows, the return from holding plain vanilla corporate bonds is negligible, so investors are more willing to buy junk, for the higher yields.

Second, New York could increase and expand its parking tax, which is now at 18.375 percent in Manhattan and 10.375 percent in the other boroughs. New York could increase this to 35 percent, expand it to all boroughs, and dedicate the revenue to funding transit operations. A higher parking tax is not uncommon. San Francisco charges a citywide 25 percent parking tax that is dedicated to supporting transit. Chicago charges 22 percent for weekday parking, Philadelphia 22.5 percent and Pittsburgh 37.5 percent. The tax is mostly invisible to drivers: with a 35 percent parking tax, a $27 charge to park for two hours means $7 was added to $20 for parking. This is a straightforward, efficient and sensible way to gently discourage driving while helping to finance public transit improvements. As those with higher incomes are more likely to drive into the city, making parking cost a little more to subsidize public transit will improve equity. Third, New York could require all garage and lot operators to offer an off-peak discount, as is already done in San Francisco’s municipal garages. People who park for at least four hours would receive, say, a $4 discount for arriving before streets are congested as well as a $4 discount for leaving after traffic subsides, for a total discount of up to $8.

Unification!” South Korean President Moon Jae-in and first lady Kim Jung-sook pose for photographs on the top of Mt. Paektu, North Korea, September 20, 2018. Pyeongyang Press Corps/Pool via REUTERS Moon and Kim took a cable car together to Heaven Lake, a caldera at the top of the mountain, and walked around the area with their wives and officials from both sides. Pictures showed Moon and Kim smiling and posing with their wives, and Moon filling a bottle with water from the lake. “The Chinese envy us because they can’t go down to the lake from their side but we can,” Kim said. “We should write another chapter of history between the North and the South by reflecting our new history on this Heaven Lake.” Some senior South Korean officials accompanying Moon suggested inviting Kim and his wife to Mount Halla, the highest mountain and a scenic tourist resort in the South. “There is our old saying that we greet the sun at Paektu, and greet the unification at Halla,” Kim’s wife, Ri Sol Ju, said. Kim said on Wednesday he will visit Seoul in the near future, in what would be the first trip to the southern capital by a North Korean leader. As the highest peak on the Korean peninsula at about 2,750 meters (9,000 ft), Mount Paektu is the mythical origin of the Korean people, featured in South Korea’s national anthem and various North Korean propaganda. An active volcano, the mountain is dotted with secret camps and historical sites from Korea’s guerrilla war against the occupying Japanese in the 1930-40s, in which Kim’s grandfather, Kim Il Sung, played a leading role. North Korea says Kim’s grandfather and father, Kim Jong Il, were born at Mount Paektu, a centerpiece of the North’s idolization and propaganda campaign to highlight the sacred bloodline of the ruling Kim family.
