德国罪恶的界限

慕尼黑—本月是德国和以色列建立外交关系50周年纪念。德以双边关系诞生于纳粹种族清洗欧洲犹太人之时,如今已经进入稳定阶段。但德国年轻人对大屠杀的记忆已经日渐模糊,再加上以色列国际形象的破坏,这些构成了两国“特殊”关系的官方定性的挑战。

以色列国父、以色列与德国和解的缔造者大卫·本-古里安(David Ben-Gurion)是一个彻头彻尾的务实主义者。他明白,建设对德关系——包括有助于提升以色列能力的赔款——极大地有利于确保以色列的生存。

当然,赔款——从1952年开始——也符合德国的利益。在二战后重新赢得国际合法性的最佳办法莫过于公开弥补纳粹所犯下的暴行,并与全球犹太人和解。

    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.
