一国一制

斯德哥尔摩——7月1日是在“一国两制”模式下,英国向中国交还香港20周年纪念日。但一个无法回避的问题笼罩着官方纪念活动:香港回归是否真的值得庆祝?

如果你询问一国两制模式的设计师邓小平香港回归20周年纪念日应当是什么样子,他可能会说香港居民会为了繁荣和自由而举杯庆贺。中国领导人将表现出他们的信誉和执政能力,并最终让那些曾经质疑中国共产党及其对香港承诺诚意的唱反调者闭上嘴巴。

但现实却是截然不同的。今天,1997年在香港曾经不可思议的场景——大规模反华游行、反共激进分子被选进立法会、公开呼吁独立——已经变得屡见不鲜。

    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.

    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.
