硅谷之外

伯克利—加州硅谷正在再次确认其高科技企业家精神和财富创造圣地的地位。但这不是一个其他地方的决策者和企业家可以模仿的创造就业和包容性增长的模式——至少在做出一些根本性调整之前是如此。

平心而论,目前在硅谷所发生的事情可谓令人眼花缭乱。风险资本(VC)投资正处于接近历史记录的高峰。一夜暴富——成为百万乃至亿万富翁——层出不穷。二十来岁的软件代码编写员要求六位数的薪水。

这一繁荣推动了加州的经济复苏。并且,它与勇气十足的政治领导力一起,让加州摆脱了令人绝望的财政危机。

    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.

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.

    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.
