希拉里的“基辛格时刻”

东京——

希拉里·克林顿近期的亚洲之行可能会成为自亨利·基辛格1971年7月的北京秘密之行后,美国外交官最重要的亚洲访问。基辛格的访问带来了外交革命。在冷战的高潮时期,美中关系的恢复改变了全球力量平衡,为中国经济开放作好了铺垫——这个决定对塑造今天的世界格局起了最重要的作用。希拉里在亚洲访问的言行要么会标志着40年前基辛格开创的时代的终结,要么会标志着旧时代中截然不同的新阶段的开始。

即将来临的希拉里之行释放了至今为止最清楚的信号:美国不愿让中国追求地区霸权。在河内举行的东盟峰会结束后,希拉里就北京宣称对斯普拉特利群岛(即我南沙群岛——译者注)的主权拥有已成为“核心利益”一事质问中国外交部长杨洁篪。根据这一定义,中国把这些岛屿(越南和菲律宾也宣称拥有主权)视为大陆的一部分,就像西藏和台湾一样,绝不允许有外国干涉。

    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.
