印度走向辉煌的新道路

新加坡——如果我们低估印度近期选举所取得的成果,那就非常的不明智了。莫汉·辛格和索尼娅·甘地组合的再次当选将会把印度带入正确的发展方向,从此印度进入了一个新的历史时期。他们现在可以放手进一步来实施经济改革和市场自由化。印度之虎开始松绑,走向经济振兴之路。中国和印度的同时崛起增强了全球的繁荣和稳定。正值全球金融危机之际,整个世界更应该为两国的崛起而感到庆幸。

事实上,没有人会预测到选举的结果会是这样。绝大多数观察家低估了印度选民的智慧。辛格甘地的组合给人民带来很多的好处。首先,辛格甘地组合领导的国大党继承了迦哇内卢·尼赫鲁的传统的温和务实主义政策。他们将印度政治带入中间路线,有效地抑制了地方势力和极端主义势力的抬头。

其次,印度选民认识到辛格再次当选的重要性。他们认为辛格是一位温和聪明而且立场坚定领导人,有了他的领导,印度将会进入一个正确的方向。辛格会在已经取得的成绩上,更加开放印度的经济。正如他曾经说过的:“虽然印度有一个巨大的国内市场,但我们早期的政策还是过于狭隘,全球化经验不足,我们应该积极发展贸易和加强全球化的经济合作。”

    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.

    Rage Against the Elites

    • With the advantage of hindsight, four recent books bring to bear diverse perspectives on the West’s current populist moment. 
    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    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.
