全球化的政治断层

发自纽约——英国民众以微弱多数投票脱离欧盟的举动虽然是英国人自己的事。然而大家也都知道,这就如同煤矿里的那只金丝雀(注:用来提早预警瓦斯泄露,比喻出现坏事的最初征兆),预示了大规模民粹主义/民族主义对全球化、自由贸易、业务外包、劳动力流动、市场导向政策、超国家机构,甚至是技术变革的反向冲击——至少在发达经济体就是如此。

上述这些趋势令低技能工人的工资和就业在劳动力短缺但资本充足的发达经济体和劳动力充裕的新兴经济体中此消彼长。发达经济体的消费者从商品价格下降中受益;但低端甚至一些中等技术工人则因为均衡工资下降且工作机会受威胁而减少了收入。

在“脱欧”投票中也展现出了明显的断层:富人/穷人,贸易及全球化的赢家/输家,高技能/低技能劳动者,受过良好教育/低教育程度,年轻人/老年人,城市/农村,多样性/单一型社区。而在其他发达经济体,包括美国和欧洲大陆,都出现了类似的断层。

    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.
