唐纳德·特朗普的众多极端

华盛顿—在美国和其他国家,许多人都在关注美国总统候选人唐纳德·特朗普是否会转变让他赢得共和党提名的反移民、反穆斯林和反理性的言辞风格。他的一些顾问据说建议他转向“主流”共和党立场,如美国众议院领导层所持的立场。

特朗普完全有可能遵循建议。毕竟,他目前的立场没有获得充分的支持使他有望在11月胜出(引用率颇高的FiveThirtyEight网站认为他获胜的概率为两成左右)。而特朗普的竞选搭档、印第安纳州州长麦克·彭斯(Mike Pence)2000至2012年间在众议院供职,与众议院议长保罗·莱恩(Paul Ryan)和其他共和党领导人关系甚密。

共和党建制派因为特朗普的候选人资格产生了深刻的分歧,他们显然希望看到这样的转变。但是,果真如此的话,也决不能视此为转向较“温和”的立场。换做其他任何一个年份,国会共和党都会被视为不负责任的极端分子。

So, is Chinese President Xi Jinping right to double down on authoritarianism, and is the “China model” truly a viable rival to Western-style democratic capitalism?

    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. As a major producer of sophisticated components, its long-term trade strategy should focus on gaining deep and unfettered access to integrated cross-border supply chains – and that means adopting a multilateral approach.
