欧洲绿洲

巴黎—非欧洲人对欧洲不像欧洲人那样悲观吗?对于某个大陆的问题,距离是产生更平衡观点的必要条件吗?

在几个月前的一次采访中,中国建设银行董事长王洪章委婉地表达了他对欧洲克制的热情。他引用中国成语评价欧洲:“瘦死的骆驼比马大”,接着又说欧洲经济比许多人想象得坚挺得多。此外,尽管没有明说,但他表示在正确的价格买入欧洲的时机已经对头了。

当然,不是所有人都抱着如此乐观的态度。英吉利海峡另一头,英国的疑欧派对于远离“下沉的船”踌躇满志。但是,尽管《经济学人》最近说法国“拒绝承认出了问题”,其实英国人自己也是如此。诚然,法国今年既没有举办奥运会,也没有王室生日,但是,就经济而言,两国可以说坐在一条船上。

    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.
