适合意大利的经济议程

发自米兰——就在本月底,意大利选民即将选举出下一届政府,人们期望新政府能提供更多的就业岗位以及一个更为平等的经济活动平台——而其他欧洲伙伴国家则期待它推行结构性改革并精简财政。那么意大利新政府的经济政策议程应该是怎样的呢?

为了减少目前总额超过GDP120%的公共债务并尽量缩短痛苦的调整过程,意大利急需经济增长——这是近几年来一直迷惑着政策制定者的问题。确实,意大利的平均GDP年增长率自1999年加入欧洲经济与货币联盟来一直维持在0.5%的低水平,远低于欧元区约1.5%的平均水平。自全球金融危机爆发后的四年,增长率下降到-1.2%,今年预计依然会是负值,而与此同时欧元区平均增长率则为-0.2%。

因此新政府面对的最大挑战就是要实施成功的改革——这种改革要让意大利经济的表现在经历多年错误政策和政府麻痹失职后赶上其他邻国。这就要求在创新和人力资本上增加投资。

    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.
