特朗普的外国仰慕者

坎布里奇—唐纳德·特朗普不喜欢拉丁美洲人,还鼓吹建一道墙把他们与美国隔离开。与往常的这类冷漠相比,拉丁美洲人总要以牙还牙,正如穆斯林和其他感到被这位共和党总统提名人冒犯的人一样。但许多讨厌特朗普的人对于限制性的移民政策却是无比热衷。

对社会很有利的东西被描述为很恶劣,这样的公共政策领域少之又少。当然,将社会问题归咎于外国替罪羊是政治老把戏。但移民的积极效应显而易见,而对他们的敌意如此之深,这着实令人震惊。

关于移民的最新研究表明,移民对本地人的福利具有巨大的积极效应。比尔和莎莉·科尔(Bill and Sari Kerr)指出,移民仅占美国人口的13%,但贡献了26%的企业家,36%的新企业领导团队中至少有一名移民。这表明移民是美国经济活力和就业创造的重要生力军。

    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. 
    • But moving beyond Xi's anti-corruption purge to build robust and lasting anti-graft institutions will not be easy, owing to enduring opportunities for bureaucratic capture.

    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.
