美国的就业困局

伯克利——

短期内拉动就业的方式一般有两种:一种是增强人们对商品和服务的需求,之后便可坐待就业率上升,因为各行各业会招募员工,以生产商品、提供服务,满足那种需求;另一种方式则不去考虑商品的生产与服务的提供,而是通过政府的直接招募行为,以试图推动就业。

With cooperation unlikely, the world should prepare itself for the erosion of the World Trade Organization.

    The Globalization of Our Discontent

    Globalization, which was supposed to benefit developed and developing countries alike, is now reviled almost everywhere, as the political backlash in Europe and the US has shown. The challenge is to minimize the risk that the backlash will intensify, and that starts by understanding – and avoiding – past mistakes.

    A Better British Story

    Despite all of the doom and gloom over the United Kingdom's impending withdrawal from the European Union, key manufacturing indicators are at their highest levels in four years, and the mood for investment may be improving.

    The UK’s Multilateral Trade Future

    With Brexit looming, the UK has no choice but to redesign its future trading relationships.
