调整中的政府职能

北京—今年的中国发展论坛清楚揭示了中国领导人准备如何实现“中国梦”。习近平主席将“中国梦”描述为“国家富强、民族振兴、人民幸福。”。问题在于政府如何贯彻这一宏伟的改革发展计划。

去年11月的中共十八届三中全会制定了需在2020年前落实的改革方案,涵盖60个领域的330多项重大改革,改革的广度、深度和复杂度前所未有。实现中国从以制造和出口为基础的经济模式向由消费和服务驱动的经济模式的转变,即包容性、环境可持续性,同时每年创造1,300多万个就业岗位。这是一项极其艰巨的任务。除此之外,中国政府还面临维护金融和社会稳定的挑战,与此同时需要管理好世界最庞大的官僚机构。任务之艰巨令人难以置信。

以去年夏天政府财政状况的评估为例。国家审计署需要动员55,400位工作人员审查各级政府的账目,包括中央政府以及31个省和自治区、5个直辖市、391个市、2,778个县、33,091个农村社区。整个调查涵盖62,215个政府部门和机构、7,170家地方政府融资机构、68,621家公共财政支持的机构、2,235家上市公司以及14,129家其他机构——总计730,065个项目和2,454,635项债务。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Rage Against the Elites

    • With the advantage of hindsight, four recent books bring to bear diverse perspectives on the West’s current populist moment. 
    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
