欧洲的领导实力

    剑桥--在今年的达沃斯世界经济论坛上,众人热议的话题是亚洲不断增长的实力。一位亚洲问题分析家指出,到2050年,世界将会有三大强权,也就是美国、中国和印度。他没有提到欧洲,但是低估欧洲的实力是一个错误。

    是的,欧洲目前确实是虎落平川。它现在各自为政,和平无事,并且在一个硬性实力的世界里确定标准,但是,世界还有一部分并非完全由军事实力左右。在先进工业化民主国家中使用武力几乎是难以想见的。借用罗伯特卡根的话来说,在彼此关系中,这些国家都来自金星,所以在这里欧洲集中于法律和机制是有利之处。

    对于世界其他地方而言,最近的一项皮尤调查显示,许多欧洲人想要让欧洲发挥更大的作用,但是,平衡美国的军事实力将会要求军费翻两番或者三番,而欧洲人很少对于这样的增加军费感兴趣。但是,欧洲的灵巧战略要求在硬性实力上更大的投资。

    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.
