怎样使欧盟一体化深入人心

在整个欧盟,对于全球化的担忧和对于一体化和移民的抵触在政治上造成了巨大的负面影响,包括使法国和荷兰没能通过对于欧盟宪法条约草案的全民公决,以及事实上暂停土耳其的入盟谈判。欧洲理事会和欧盟委员会对此无能为力,似乎这件事与它们无关。

大家普遍的看法认为,欧盟无法面对一体化的挑战的原因在于僵硬的经济结构以及不够充分的人力资本,这些弱点只有通过各国采取的政策才能得到有效解决,而在这方面欧盟无能为力。但是,欧盟地区实质的政策效果证明了在劳动力市场和福利改革方面加强政策协调是正确的。

过时的劳动力市场规则是内部市场和货币联盟的全面利益未能得到实现的主要原因。劳动力市场的僵硬,首当其冲是法国、德国和意大利,妨碍了对于迈向一体化的市场更加激烈的竞争调节。失去工作的人因为准入障碍而无法找到新的工作,而居高不下的长期失业使得那些拥有工作的感到威胁。因为对移民和内部市场一体化感到担心,使得两个群体都开始对欧洲的一体化持反对的态度。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
