新管理下的亚洲巨人

巴厘岛—世界上三分之一多的人口生活在三个国家中:中国、印度和印尼。这三个国家都在经历重大政治转型——或者是新领导人选举,或者是领导人的关键决定——全球经济的未来也迎来了决定形时刻。如果纳兰德拉·莫迪(Narendra Modi)和“佐科维”佐科·维多多(Joko “Jokowi” Widodo)在即将到来的印度和印尼大选中获胜,他们就会加入中国国家主席习近平的行列刺激地区经济增长,这可能让亚洲以比世界所能想象的速度更快地成为全球经济主宰。

习近平成为中国国家主席一年以来,他令人瞩目地集中了权力。他不但集中共总书记和中央军委主席于一身;还打击了潜在对手,包括前重庆市委书记薄熙来和国家安全主管周永康。

在庞大而复杂的中国巩固权力是十分困难的,因此,习近平的成就令人瞩目。毕竟,习近平的前任胡锦涛花了很长的时间才获得类似的权威。但这只是第一步。现在,习近平正在试图用这一权力来推动艰难的改革。而胡锦涛和前总理温家宝因为忽略这些改革而饱受批评。

    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.
