地方主义的欧洲

柏林—多任务并不是欧洲当前一代领导人的优势所在。他们正确地给予了欧元区危机——欧元区未来最核心的问题——最高的优先级。但所有其他重要问题——其中又以共同外交和安全政策为最——几乎被完全忽视了。而在这一问题上——欧洲的对外关系,对所有欧盟公民的未来来说,这绝对是关键性的问题——重新国家化的阴影再次抬头了。

如今,我们可以勾勒出后美国时代国际秩序的大致轮廓——不仅包括新的结构,也包括其中的风险、威胁和冲突,没有一项容易解决。对欧洲——以及对世界其他地区——来说,金融危机只不过是深远变革的加速器而已。

在东亚,世界最有活力、也是未来全球经济发展的主导地区,主要势力——中国、日本、韩国和中国台湾——关于边界问题、领土主张、声望和未解决历史遗留问题的冲突已呈爆发之势。在此之上还有维持了多年的朝鲜半岛和台湾冲突,随时随地都可能再度爆发。

    A Tax Plan that’s All Stuffing?

    US President Donald Trump has set a Christmas deadline for enacting the Republican tax plan, and economic observers are virtually unanimous in judging it a turkey. A scheme that squeezes the middle class and blows out the fiscal and current-account deficits may pass, but it will never fly.

    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.

    The Dangers of Nuclear Bombast

    US President Donald Trump has refused to recertify the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, an agreement that he once predicted would "lead to a nuclear holocaust." Unfortunately, by creating more perverse incentives for hostile regimes to pursue nuclear armaments at all costs, Trump has made the nightmare scenario he fears even more likely.

    Insider Interview

    • With right-wing populists ascendant in Poland and Hungary, and gaining ground elsewhere in the European Union, politics in some parts of the West looks increasingly like politics in Russia.

    • Sławomir Sierakowski, Director of the Institute for Advanced Study in Warsaw interviews Adam Michnik, one of the intellectual architects of Solidarity and of the transition from communism in Central Europe, on Europe's illiberal turn.

    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.
