是什么让美国伟大

坎布里奇—总统就职典礼和毕业典礼通常都是非常情绪性的事件。这类仪式既标志着一个国家或一个个体的一个段落的结束,也标志着新的开始。

作为哈佛肯尼迪政府学院教授,我每年都要参加毕业典礼。尽管毕业典礼对我来说如此平常,但当我看到学生完成了生命中的一个阶段、开始考虑他们的我来时,我都会感到十分激动。

在我们的典礼上,一个高光时刻是多名教授和公共人物逐字逐句朗读约翰·肯尼迪的就职演说。这是一份写于56年前的文件,它代表着一个不同的世界,一个冷战、核末日威胁以及大量新晋独立穷国所面临的挑战占据决策者关注焦点的世界。但是,在不到14分钟的时间里,这份就职演说每一次都能打动和鼓励观众席上的每一个人,包括来自世界各地的那一半毕业生和他们的家庭。

    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.
