双楼记

北京——自从不久前启用以后,伦敦希斯罗机场5号航站楼就与失败结下了不解之缘。而在地球的另一端,比伦敦5号航站楼早一天全面启用的北京3号航站楼,运营情况几乎完美无瑕。不出所料,媒体对伦敦T5航站楼的失败大书特书,似乎已经无暇顾及北京T3航站楼的巨大成功。

无论以何种标准来衡量,北京T3航站楼与伦敦T5相比都有过之而无不及。伦敦T5每小时包裹处理能力可达12,000件(如果T5还能够处理包裹的话),每年旅客吞吐量可达3000万人,而北京T3每小时包裹处理能力达到20,000件,旅客吞吐能力达到5000万人。伦敦T5主要为英航提供服务,而北京T3除了中国国航之外,还服务于其他二十几家航空公司。

北京T3总面积达100万平米,为世界上最大的航站楼,但是建筑费用却远低于伦敦T5。如果以最新汇率折算, 北京T3的总费用只有38.6亿美元,而伦敦T5却高达86亿美元之巨。不仅如此,北京T3从开工到完成只用了不到4年时间,而伦敦T5则耗用了几乎20年之久。

    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.
