没有约束的以色列

特拉维夫—以色列长期占领巴勒斯坦领土正在给其国际地位造成不可挽回的伤害——或者传统智慧这样认为。事实上,以色列目前拥有历史上从未有过的全球影响力,诸多新的国际挑战让传统上被巴勒斯坦问题所“劫持”的以色列外交政策赢得了大量回旋余地。

以色列认识到西方一边倒支持以色列的做法引起了巨大的群众反对,它一直在其他地方寻找经济以及最终的政治伙伴。从2004年到2014年,以色列对亚洲出口增长两倍,去年达到了167亿美元——占其总出口的五分之一。

如今,以色列与曾经不可调和的敌对亚洲巨人——中国、印度和日本——的贸易量比其主要全球盟友美国还要大。2014年12月重新当选后几周就访问以色列的本首相安倍晋三在,和以色列现在的第三大贸易伙伴中国的领导人都不会把各自国家与以色列的经济关系与巴勒斯坦和平谈判的成功相挂钩。

    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.
