美国的下级选举竞争

华盛顿—希拉里·克林顿的美国总统选战一直“分裂”,一方面要确保候选人她本人最大可能赢得胜利,另一方面又要明确帮助民主党州长和立法部门候选人赢得投票箱。克林顿是否可以通过取得决定性胜利——从而趁热打铁——帮助下级(down-ballot)候选人或通过更多的时间和金钱个别助选仍有待观察。

克林顿阵营已决定双管齐下。距离选举已经不到一周,两位总统候选人正在周游全国:共和党提名人唐纳德·特朗普忙于聚集胜选所需要的270张选举人票,而克林顿则在试图尽可能锁定获胜优势——包括总票数和选举人票。

一周前,克林顿眼看就要大获全胜。但10月28日,联邦调查局局长詹姆斯·科米(James Comey)致信国会,宣布他要重启对克林顿在担任国务卿期间使用私人电子邮件服务器的调查。理由?在一次针对克林顿的亲信胡马·阿贝丁(Huma Abedin)的分居丈夫的单独调查期间,在他的笔记本电脑中发现数千封电子邮件。(不,这不是电影桥段。)

    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.

    Rage Against the Elites

    • With the advantage of hindsight, four recent books bring to bear diverse perspectives on the West’s current populist moment. 
    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    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.
