欧洲的价值地理

巴黎—面对回归帝国传统和苏联式的欺骗手段和回光返照的俄罗斯,欧洲应该如何应对?欧洲应该以“地理的价值”(the value of geography)还是以“价值的地理”(the geography of values)为重?

选择前者的人打着短期“能源现实主义”的旗号,认为最关键的是要与俄罗斯达成协议,以为内欧洲缺少美国的页岩气和页岩油。根据这一逻辑,没了俄罗斯,美国可以活,欧洲活不了。

此外,对现实主义者来说,美国对其最悠久、最值得信任的盟友的蔑视行为——体现在美国国安局牵涉其中的监控丑闻中——已经让“价值共同体”的思想失去了信誉。如果美国不再尊重其所宣扬的价值,欧盟又为何要失去打着支持它们的名号的克里姆林宫的善意?

    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.
