中国给拉丁美洲带来的挑战

中国与拉丁美洲和加勒比地区的关系有些奇特。尽管在过去几年双边贸易不断增长,外交关系也得到了加强,但双方仍然缺乏相互了解,在某些情况下,双边矛盾还在加剧。中国与拉美之间开展的重大项目很少是由私营、公共或学术部门发起的,而且双边机构也未能反映经济动态的权重。

这种矛盾关系也应一分为二来看。首先,许多中国企业,尤其是基础产品部门,如大豆、肉类、钢、铁、铜和石油,已经开始通过直接投资,或收购产品和/或业务在拉美开展活动。拉美企业,例如,格鲁玛、莫德洛、巴西航空工业、马可·波罗和恩布拉科,也已成功地打入中国市场,但似乎没有在拉美的中国企业活跃。

即便如此,拉美依然是中国第二大经济和商业合作伙伴。2006年,拉美和加勒比地区占中国出口额的3.7%和进口额的4.3%。但1995到2006年间,随着双边贸易的大幅增长,中国对该区的出口额增长了24.8%,进口额增长了23.9%。

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • In the first year of his presidency, Donald Trump has consistently sold out the blue-collar, socially conservative whites who brought him to power, while pursuing policies to enrich his fellow plutocrats. 

    • Sooner or later, Trump's core supporters will wake up to this fact, so it is worth asking how far he might go to keep them on his side.

    The Man Who Didn’t Save the World

    A Saudi prince has been revealed to be the buyer of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," for which he spent $450.3 million. Had he given the money to the poor, as the subject of the painting instructed another rich man, he could have restored eyesight to nine million people, or enabled 13 million families to grow 50% more food.

    Two Myths About Automation

    While many people believe that technological progress and job destruction are accelerating dramatically, there is no evidence of either trend. In reality, total factor productivity, the best summary measure of the pace of technical change, has been stagnating since 2005 in the US and across the advanced-country world.

    The Hungarian government has released the results of its "national consultation" on what it calls the "Soros Plan" to flood the country with Muslim migrants and refugees. But no such plan exists, only a taxpayer-funded propaganda campaign to help a corrupt administration deflect attention from its failure to fulfill Hungarians’ aspirations.
