俄罗斯的经济危机结束了吗?

发自莫斯科 —— 俄罗斯的经济危机结束了吗?答案取决于你向谁提出这个问题。如果你问的是俄罗斯总理 弗拉基米尔·普京,或任何一位其统一俄罗斯党官员的话,他们会告诉你:“当然结束了。”他们甚至可以提出编造出来的证据,如失业率没有上升,养老金空前的增加,以及建筑和金属加工行业的强劲增长。

但当然,所有这些成绩都是与上个月的情况相比,而不是与该国危机前的经济相比较而言的。如此的话,还有另外一个“奇迹”政府准备大肆吹嘘的,这是在 2009 8 月发现的奇迹:俄罗斯人口的增长。不幸的是,在此之前或之后都没有哪个月出现过出生率超过死亡率的情况。

当你问到反对党的人士危机是否已经结束了,他们却会告诉你危机现在才开始。 俄罗斯天然气工业公司的产量正以令人震惊的速度下滑;在国内,那些只依靠一种产业存活的“单一城镇”正在衰亡。

    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.

    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.
