埃及屏息而待

开罗—“你是权威,凌驾一切的权威。你是保护人,谁不向你寻求保护谁就是蠢货……而军队和警察他们听我的,”埃及当选总统默罕默德·穆尔西(Mohamed Morsi)对解放广场上的数十万群众如是说。这位在“愤怒星期五”(Friday of Rage,2011年1月28日)后被捕的人在“权力交接星期五”(Friday of Power Transfer,2012年6月29日)的解放广场宣誓就职总统。但他几乎败北。

10天前,6月19日,我和一批埃及前议员一起在解放广场。其中一位议员接到了一个电话,说某穆斯林兄弟会(Muslim Brotherhood)某高级领导人将宣布他的集团遭到了敲诈勒索:接受武装部队最高委员会(SCAF)给出的宪法附则(无异于架空总统),

否则总统大选结果的决定将不利于穆斯林兄弟会。一个小时后,这位大人物是谁仍不得而知。“谈判几近崩溃,但最后又柳暗花明了。”这位前议员说。“屏息而待吧。”

    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.
