欧洲和亚洲的军备竞赛

当欧洲统一开始实现时,人们认为“异常紧密的联盟”能够建立一个使欧洲人免受政治讹诈的共同体。现在我们发现—虽然由于美国的压力和中国的激进,欧盟解除武器禁运的时间可能会推迟—当法国和中国制定联合行动计划时,欧盟就沦落为腐败的工具而已。

这一战略是简单而无情的。世界上最大的独裁国家正准备击溃并占领历史上的第一个华人民主国家—台湾。为了实施这一战略,中华人民共和国需要比其现有的更为尖端的武器。

美国自然不会将这样的武器出口到中国。相反,美国正尽力阻止中国的统治者向台湾的民主人士发动这样的军事进攻。但如果欧盟一旦开始向中国全面出口强大的进攻性武器系统,人民解放军就会具备击败台湾防御力量的能力。大陆已经部署了超过600枚的导弹,瞄准着该岛的城市和军事基地。

    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.
