结束了,婴儿潮一代

慕尼黑——卡洛斯·巴兰托斯三世出生于1964年12月31日晚6:45分檀香山西北几英里处。今年他即将年届五旬,很可能是美国“婴儿潮”一代最晚年届半百者。即使有人可能认为他们在心智上还没有完全成熟,但曾经被人视为活力、狂热甚至令人恼火的青年一代代名词的这代人已即将正式步入“老年”行列。但这究竟有什么意义?

“婴儿潮一代”特指二战后生长在美国的一代人,但同期生长在欧洲、加拿大、澳大利亚和其他地方的人同样也属于婴儿潮一代。战后经济快速发展和出生率大幅飙升是这个时代的特征。从1945到1964年这19年间出生的人组成了这个世界上最为庞大、繁荣、受过良好教育、并且按照某些人的说法,最被溺爱和放纵的一代。

从性、毒品、摇滚、民权运动到互联网和房地产泡沫,无论好坏,婴儿潮一代奠定了现代社会的基础。现在入主白宫的就是婴儿潮一代相对年轻的成员,而唐宁街、爱丽舍宫和德国总理府同样也是这代人入主。婴儿潮一代仍将影响我们未来的道路。

    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.
