欧洲危险的陈词滥调

耶路撒冷-欧洲对缔造和平和国际行为规范的号召,必定会成为巴拉克·奥巴马寻求重建被其前任严重破坏的大西洋两岸国家联盟的基础。在这一努力中,美国新任总统以多快的速度回应阿拉伯-以色列冲突,对欧洲来说是至关重要的。因为对欧洲来说,耶路撒冷一直比巴格达更加重要,但是,乔治·沃克·布什却拒绝听取这一点。

欧洲无力帮助解决阿拉伯-以色列冲突,不是源自其在核心问题上的立场,这些立场只在细小的方面和美国所持的立场不同。相反,欧洲在这一问题上的无力源自其对以色列这个犹太国家的 态度 。本质上,吸引和排斥的辩证关系植根于作为犹太人和欧洲人的集体良知之中。像丹尼·德·鲁格蒙在1946年所说的那样,欧洲是一个痛苦而饱受折磨的记忆,人们必须承认这一点。

欧洲这个古老的大陆承受着两个和以色列有很大关系的负疚情结:殖民和犹太情结。巴勒斯坦的灾难受到这种欧洲负疚的直接影响。

    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.
