恐怖时代的自由贸易

反恐战争似乎正导致保护主义高涨。某些反恐战士抵制移民的情绪被高昂地调动起来,甚至打算在整个美国和墨西哥边界上筑一道城墙。因为担心恐怖主义者可能会从投资中获取重要情报,他们还强烈反对迪拜一家公司并购美国港口的提议。在欧洲,阻止来自穆斯林国家的移民进入欧洲的运动也深入人心。

但是,这些新情况的涌现并不能构成通常意义上的保护主义。保护主义一般是私人利益对公共利益的颠覆,如农民因为竞争性进口限制而收取高价。对国家安全方面的顾虑并不愚蠢。自由开放的贸易所带来的好处,显然是国家利益所在,但是,公民的安全,也是国家的关键利益所在。

尽管国家安全与全球化有时会互相冲突,但这两者之间并不是一个非此即彼的问题,因此,如何平衡这两者,便成为了政策成功的关键。

    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.
