一个新布雷顿森林会议?

普林斯顿-国际社会对当前的世界金融危机的回应,混乱而且代价高昂;这已经促使法国总统尼可拉斯·萨科齐,英国首相戈登·布朗,以及曾任国际货币基金组织总干事的德国总统霍斯特·克勒,号召召开新布雷顿森林会议来设计一个新的全球金融体系。但是,召开新布雷顿森林会议的要求有赖于对建立新全球金融体系的协议可以提供什么的清楚认识。

因为当今的国际金融体系显然在许多地方都出现了问题,所以抛弃它所具有的吸引力,是很容易看出来的。现存的国际金融机构在正常时期看起来越来越无关紧要,在危机时期也不起作用。虽然国际货币基金组织对美国住房市场崩溃可能的代价发布了悲观的正确数据,但是,它在处理当前的危机上,几乎没有起到作用。这是自1944年布雷顿森林会议以来,国际货币基金组织第一次在一场国际金融危机中成为一个局外人。

相反,当前主要的国际参与者是一个由中型欧洲国家控制的G-7群体,但是,充满活力的亚洲新兴经济体——它们是全球储备的来源——在G-7中并没有代表性。

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls. 
    • But moving beyond Xi's anti-corruption purge to build robust and lasting anti-graft institutions will not be easy, owing to enduring opportunities for bureaucratic capture.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.
