货币联盟的稳定与繁荣

法兰克福—有一个普遍的错误概念——欧元区是一个没有财政联盟的货币联盟。但这反映的是对货币联盟含义的深刻误解。货币联盟之所以成为你可能,唯一的原因是欧盟国家间已经实现了深度一体化——而共用一种货币深化了这个一体化。

如果欧洲货币联盟比许多人想的更有韧性,其唯一原因是质疑它的人误判了它的政治面。他们低估了欧元区成员国之间的联系、它们集体投资的规模、以及它们联手解决告急的共同问题的意愿。

但同样明显的是,我们的货币联盟仍不完善。两年前,所谓的“四主席”(欧盟理事会主席与欧盟委员会、欧洲央行和欧元集团主席的密切合作)做出了这一诊断。此外,尽管在某些领域取得了重要进展,但其他方面的工作仍有待完成。

    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.
