新德里——中国发明了一项新策略,来缓解监狱人满为患的压力: 雇佣服刑人员在发展中国家的海外项目中充当劳动力。 这种状况暴露了中国糟糕人权记录的另外一个侧面,也就是当涉及到中国公司的海外经营时,政府无法严格执行自己制定的法律。

With cooperation unlikely, the world should prepare itself for the erosion of the World Trade Organization.

    The Globalization of Our Discontent

    Globalization, which was supposed to benefit developed and developing countries alike, is now reviled almost everywhere, as the political backlash in Europe and the US has shown. The challenge is to minimize the risk that the backlash will intensify, and that starts by understanding – and avoiding – past mistakes.

    A Better British Story

    Despite all of the doom and gloom over the United Kingdom's impending withdrawal from the European Union, key manufacturing indicators are at their highest levels in four years, and the mood for investment may be improving.
