美国的“格鲁乔”马克思主义者

发自伦敦——美国喜剧明星格鲁乔·马克思一直是我最钟爱的“马克思主义者”。他的其中一条笑料道破了马克思主义意识形态——既所谓教条化的信仰——为何失败的核心原因,而这个信仰曾被他的同族人卡尔·马克思所利用,令我们这个悲惨的世界饱受折磨。

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.
