欧洲政治的重构

普林斯顿—许多欧洲人担心即将到来的欧洲议会选举可能产生这样的结果:反欧洲反对党表现抢眼,并且几乎肯定将成为真正的赢家。但绝望无法解决欧盟的政治危机。

这场危机有其深刻根源。如今,反欧洲政党——马琳·勒庞(Marine Le Pen)的法国国民阵线(National Front),吉尔特·怀尔德(Geert Wilder)的荷兰自由党(Party for Freedom)以及尼格尔·法拉奇(Nigel Farage)的英国独立党(Independence Party)——在联手打造政治“家庭”方面卓有成效。与此同时,老牌“家庭”——社会民主党、自由党和欧洲人民党(European People’s Party)——在许多欧洲人眼里已经信誉扫地。

问题在于老欧洲党派的知识和道德基础在最近几年快速削弱,部分原因在于它们没能——或无力——适应欧洲层面的制度。如果它们无法快速行动起来重塑自己作为可信、高效的选民利益代表的形象,它们就有可能沦为政治背景,让不负责任的民粹主义逐渐占据中心舞台。

    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.
