菲永能击败勒庞吗?

剑桥——在星期天进行的法国共和党总统初选中,弗朗索瓦·菲永以赢得67%选票的成绩毫无争议地击败了领跑者阿兰·朱佩。

仅仅两周前,明显处于劣势的候选人以绝对优势获胜似乎根本不可能。人们一直认为曾在雅克·希拉克总统内阁担任波尔多市长及前总理职务的朱佩将在第二轮决选中击败前总统尼古拉斯·萨科齐,也是另一位党内竞争领跑者。菲永曾在前总统萨科齐手下担任总理,从首回合开始即以44%的选票处于绝对领先地位。结果对萨科齐而言是一种耻辱,萨科齐只赢得了20%多一点的选票,并实际导致自身政治生涯终结。

对许多观察家而言,此次投票令人联想起6月的英国退欧公投和美国当选总统唐纳德·特朗普本月早些时候的胜利。事实证明了显示菲永处于第三且与前两位差距巨大的民调结果错误,部分原因可能是许多投票者似乎是在投票前几天才做出决定的。社交媒体再次被认为发挥了关键的作用。在投票前的最后一场辩论中,菲永向公众证明自己是朱佩和萨科齐可靠的替代者。

    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.
