克里姆林宫的换椅子游戏

在俄罗斯又一次面临大选的时候,总理宝座像换椅子游戏那样不断地变换着人选。而最后一个坐上这个位置的人被认为会成为俄罗斯的下一任总统。

在任期行将结束前,叶利钦换了至少六个总理,以寻找到一个不但能保证俄罗斯的新民主和市场经济的安全,同时更能保证他的“家族”以及在他的执政期间累积起来的巨大财富的安全的人选。当然,最后一个坐上这个位置的人就是普京。

现在轮到普京来做这场游戏了,将一直在他的第二任期内担任总理的弗拉德科夫解职以及解散政府正是在为将于11月份进行的议会选举和2008年3月份进行的总统选举做准备。1999年的时候,叶利钦挑选了当时不太为人所知的联邦安全局(前克格勃)的局长普京。而现在普京选择提拔同样神秘的祖布科夫,联邦金融监测局(也被称为“金融间谍”机构)局长。

    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.
