给非洲现金援助

    斯德哥尔摩--欧洲已经做出重大承诺来提高对非洲的援助,而非洲面临的挑战则要求更大的参与。但是,对已经依赖援助的国家大幅度提高援助就要求具有更为明晰的提供机制以及一定程度的预算可预见性。人们要求有新的东西,而向贫困人们直接转移现金可以成为一种选择。但是这一做法只能是伙伴国家福利制度长久愿景的一部分。

    欧盟已经承诺其与成员国将援助在2010年增加到GDP的0.56%以及在2015年增加到0.7%,其重点地区是非洲。把经和组织发展援助委员会成员国的援助承诺加在一起,向非洲的正式发展援助将会在2004年到2010年期间翻倍。但是前提条件是它们遵守承诺。

    毕竟,人们对援助国家是否遵守承诺以及伙伴国家的条件是否允许援助国这样做提出疑问是公平合理的。但是在理论上把非援到2010年增加一倍、并且可能在此之后增加更多提供了战胜贫困的巨大机遇。因此,消除有可能阻碍这些额外资源有效应用的障碍就是当务之急。

    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.

    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.
