让欧洲敢于创新

德国路德维希港—创新是创造可持续经济增长的关键之一。但我们仍然看到,那些最有希望发明新产品、服务和做生意的方式的人却遇到了重重险阻,特别是在欧盟。但是,要想让创意得到实现商业成功的希望,投资者、管理者和创业者必须承担风险。

欧洲大概是对这一问题讨论最多而理解最少的地区。创新被置于欧盟委员会给欧盟所制定的增长战略——欧洲2020的核心。但是,尽管欧洲科学研究位列全球最发达的行列,但欧洲却在将创新引向市场方面成为全球竞争的落后者。

不论你用哪种指标衡量创新,有三大条件是创新繁荣所必须具备的:高技能的、受过教育的劳动力;出色的信息和通信技术基础设施;以及支持性的商业环境。换句话说,成功的创新需要稳定而增长的经济、崭新的思想以及摆脱各种不必要的沉重监管负担。政府的作用十分关进。欧盟至少则一份方面误解了政府的作用:其对风险的态度。

    Angela Merkel’s Endgame?

    The collapse of coalition negotiations has left German Chancellor Angela Merkel facing a stark choice between forming a minority government or calling for a new election. But would a minority government necessarily be as bad as Germans have traditionally thought?

    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.

    The Platform Economy

    While developed countries in Europe, North America, and Asia are rapidly aging, emerging economies are predominantly youthful. Nigerian, Indonesian, and Vietnamese young people will shape global work trends at an increasingly rapid pace, bringing to bear their experience in dynamic informal markets on a tech-enabled gig economy.

    Profiles in Discouragement

    One day, the United States will turn the page on Donald Trump. But, as Americans prepare to observe their Thanksgiving holiday, they should reflect that their country's culture and global standing will never recover fully from the wounds that his presidency is inflicting on them.

    How Women Shape Coups

    The Abnormality of Oil

    At the 2017 Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, the consensus among industry executives was that oil prices will still be around $60 per barrel in November 2018. But there is evidence to suggest that the uptick in global growth and developments in Saudi Arabia will push the price as high as $80 in the meantime.

    The Saudi Prince’s Dangerous War Games

    Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is working hard to consolidate power and establish his country as the Middle East’s only hegemon. But his efforts – which include an attempt to trigger a war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon – increasingly look like the work of an immature gambler.
