欧洲的进步政治联盟

发自华盛顿特区——只需再等不到三个星期,我们就会知道谁是美国的下一任总统。而这位总统在欧洲的合作伙伴人选将在很大程度上取决于2017年两次选举的结果:5月初的法国总统选举和10月底的德国联邦选举。

当然,英国脱欧将对欧洲的未来形态产生影响。而“硬脱欧”选项最近获得了极大关注——尤其是自英国首相特雷莎·梅(Theresa May)宣布打算集中力量限制移民,即便这意味着失去进入单一市场的资格——其本身也将改变欧洲的运作方式。

正如法国总理曼努埃尔·瓦尔斯(Manuel Valls)最近撰文指出,欧洲领导人面临的关键问题是“放弃并坐视欧洲项目走向缓慢但必然的终结”还是“实现欧盟的转型”。这种转变可不是件容易的事。它不仅需要为欧洲规划一个新的制度性远景,而且需要重大的政治重组,特别是在法国和德国。

    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.

    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.
