民主高于主权的欧洲

发自米兰——欧盟的未来不一定会由近期荷兰、法国、德国和意大利选举的投票所决定,但这些选举的结果将对欧洲的命运造成深远的影响。

正如荷兰的格特·维尔德斯(Geert Wilders)和法国的玛琳·勒庞(Marine Le Pen)等右翼民粹主义反体制分子近乎狂热的竞选运动所展现的那样,民众的反欧盟情绪比以往任何时候都更为广泛。但也存在着支持改革和重塑欧盟的迹象——这一信息也得到了法国的伊曼纽尔·马克隆(Emmanuel Macron)和德国的马丁·舒尔茨(Martin Schulz)这类候选人的拥护。

任何有说服力的亲欧盟竞选活动都必须解决欧元引起的一系列问题。已经在欧盟28个成员国(英国脱欧后为27个)中的19个国家通行的共同货币已经成为欧洲一体化远景的主要阻碍因素。虽然欧元危机最凶险的时期已经过去,但欧元区的架构仍然脆弱。一旦出现新的波动,对其存续能力的怀疑极易卷土重来。

    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.
