中国的稳定话题

北京—我从20世纪90年代末开始关注中国,我从中学到的第一条原则就是,在中国,稳定压倒一切,不管是经济、社会还是政治。

中国饱经上千年动乱,因此今天的中国领导人将竭尽全力保证稳定。每当我认为中国会出现潜在的政策变化时,我都会用稳定性来检查可能的选择,屡试不爽。

在3月17—20日举行的一年一度的中国发展论坛(CDF)上,稳定占据着每一位与会者的头脑。这次论坛由温家宝总理主持,多位国务院所属部长出席,是中国最重要的国际会议。但是,就在今年CDF召开前两天,颇具争议的重庆市委书记薄熙来被免去了职务。薄熙来本是进入中共中央政治局常委的有力竞争者,他的突然去职令人震惊。我们在钓鱼台国宾馆开会的时候,明显地感觉到暗流在涌动。

    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.
