移民是福是祸

    慕尼黑--欧洲东西部之间正在进行一场巨大的人口迁徙。这一人口移动足以与四世纪和六世纪间席卷欧洲的大迁徙相比。

    例如,2007年1月1日罗马尼亚加入欧盟后一年之内,大约一百万罗马尼亚人迁移到了意大利和西班牙。在过去四年多的时间里,八十多万东欧人在英国工作,他们大多数来自波兰。实际上,仅仅在过去两年中,一百五十万波兰人迁移外国。自从波兰在2004年加入欧盟以来总共大约有两百万人移居国外。在比较小的程度内,乌克兰人移居到捷克,保加利亚人移居到土耳其,而英国人移居到西班牙这些现象也是引人瞩目的。

    由于德国依旧限制东欧欧盟国家的养靠工人移民,其大多数移民都是自雇人士或者没有什么经济能力的人。在慕尼黑,自雇的瓦盖工人从2004年的119人增加到2005年的970人,这正好是首批欧盟东扩的头两年。但是尽管有限制,到了2005年,德国已经吸收了欧盟东扩前后来自东欧的所有移民的35%,而意大利吸纳22%,希腊11%,瑞士8%,而英国只有3%。同年,居住在德国的人口中的13%是在外国出生,超过英国的10%,法国的7%,西班牙的5%或者意大利的3%。

    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.
