技术政治转型

日内瓦—说我们的世界正在经历快速而深远的变革有些保守了。全球经济、地缘政治局势、环境以及科技面临不断变化的条件的约束,这些条件组成了一个复杂的互动网络,互相强化和转化。在这样一个不可预测又相互联系的环境中,有效领导必须建立在不同凡响的远见、多方位的技能和对科技和人才的理解之上。

决定二十一世纪世界的趋势既包含了希望,也包含了危险。比如,全球化将数亿人带出了贫困,但也造成了社会分裂和不平等性剧增,更不用说严重的环境问题了。类似地,大数据给公司和消费者带来了难以估量的好处,但也给隐私和个人自由造成了实实在在的威胁。

类似的二分法也适用于其他许多关键问题,包括适应气候变化、改善资源管理的措施、城市化和大都市的兴起、劳动力流动性的增加和人力资本扩张等。

    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.
