书写未来

亚的斯亚贝巴——全球经济未来将会如何?全球生活水平是否会随着今天的贫困国家在技术领域跨越式地追赶富裕国家而普遍提高?抑或随着贪婪腐败耗尽我们的重要资源,破坏人类福祉所依赖的自然环境而只能眼睁睁地看着繁荣从我们的指缝间溜走?人类面临更严峻的挑战保障世界繁荣,防止世界变成一片荒芜。

我们的故事有待新世纪书写,就像一部结局不同的小说。繁荣是蔓延抑抑或萎缩都并非命中注定。超出我们理解(也许只是不愿承认)的是,未来是人类的选择问题,而并非单纯的预测。

    Whither the Multilateral Trading System?

    The global economy today is dominated by three major players – China, the EU, and the US – with roughly equal trading volumes and limited incentive to fight for the rules-based global trading system. 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. While parts of the UK are certainly weakening economically, others may finally be overcoming longstanding challenges.

    The UK’s Multilateral Trade Future

    With Brexit looming, the UK has no choice but to redesign its future trading relationships.
