 导读:世界银行总裁罗伯特·佐利克周日警告说,许多重要的市场参与者近几周都已经失去信心,全球经济因此将陷入一个新的危险地带。

他说,过去几周在美国和欧洲市场上发生的事情已经带来严重影响,并预示着更严重情况的出现。不少市场参与者越来越对某些国家的经济领导力失去信心。受这些事件影响再加上经济恢复过程固有的脆弱,世界经济正被逼近一个新的危险地带,这绝非危言耸听。

他表示,除非全球经济的领导者能够在多方面先发制人,消除问题,否则这种信心的失去还会越来越普遍,致使像意大利、西班牙这些原本可安度危机的国家也陷入麻烦之中。

The head of the World Bank warned Sunday that many key market players have lost confidence in recent weeks, pushing the fragile global economy into a "new danger zone."

Speaking to members of the Asian Society in Sydney, Australia, Robert Zoellick said events the past few weeks in Europe and the United States already have had an adverse impact, and could signal even bigger problems ahead. Several European nations continue to struggle with high debt, slow economies and other issues, while U.S. politicians went to the wire before they raised its debt ceiling -- only to see credit agencies downgrade its credit rating, and stock markets flounder.

"There was a convergence of some events in Europe and the United States that has led many market participants to lose confidence in the economic leadership of some of the key countries," Zoellick said.

This reflects growing sentiment that years after the start of a major recession conditions could continue to deteriorate, the World Bank president said. His organization is a key player in the global economy, with its website noting it offers "financial and technical assistance to developing countries."

"I think that those events combined with some of the other fragilities in the nature of the recovery has pushed us into a new danger zone," Zoellick said. "And I don't say those words lightly."

Zoellick, a former U.S. Trade Representative in the administration of President George W. Bush and later an executive at the investment giant Goldman Sachs, added that it was important for countries "to get ahead of" their debt problems rather than pursue patchwork solutions.

He elaborated to Australia's ABC News that a long-term solution "requires attention to some of the fundamentals" -- not just tackling government debt but also bolstering economic competitiveness and spurring growth.

"Unless the economic leadership gets ahead of the problem in its different dimensions, you'll see the lack of confidence ... spread," Zoellick said.

He warned that nations that otherwise should be able to weather the economic storm, like Spain or Italy, could find themselves in trouble.
