巩固拉丁美洲的成就

圣地亚哥—去年土耳其发生未遂政变时,我给我的土耳其朋友发电子邮件表示关注。他的回答让我陷入了沉思。在愤懑地回顾了国内的所发生的事件后,他说,“你在拉丁美洲真是幸运,尽管有时候好像并不是这样。”

我们拉丁美洲人时常抱怨。想到还有其他人比我们更加糟糕,这让我们不寒而栗。但如果拉美人能够客观地看待当今世界,很容易就能理解为何许多人认为我们还算幸运。

恐怖主义正在欧洲兴起,而拉丁美洲最后的内战——哥伦比亚内战正在走向结束。我们这一代阿根廷、巴西和智利人生长在荷枪实弹的士兵巡查机场、火车站和其他公共场所的时代。如今,布鲁塞尔、巴黎和伦敦,而不是我们这里,正在发生同样的事情。与美国总统特朗普形成对比的是,一些拉丁美洲民粹主义政客算得上胜任和知情。

    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.
