欧洲的乌克兰生命线

纽约—上周的欧洲议会选举和乌克兰总统选举产生了反差极大的结果。欧洲选民纷纷表达了对欧盟运行现状的不满,而乌克兰人民表现出加入欧盟的渴望。欧洲领导人和公民应该利用这次机会,思考一下这意味着什么以及为何帮助乌克兰就是帮助欧洲。

欧盟原本被认为是主权国家组成的联盟,成员国愿意为了共同的利益逐渐将越来越多的主权集中在一起,让联盟日益紧密。这是国际治理和法治精神的大胆实验,其目标是取代民族主义和使用武力。

不幸的是,欧元危机极大地改变了欧盟的面貌:一种债权人和债务人的关系,债权国施加了让它们能够永久主宰的条件。欧洲议会选举很少出现大逆转,如果把对意大利总理伦齐的支持也算作是支持左翼和右翼的反欧盟观点,那么可以说大部分人民都反对现状。

    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.

    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.
