林肯、罗斯福、丘吉尔…奥巴马?

巴黎——特殊的环境——也就是深重而急迫的金融和经济危机——已经为巴拉克·奥巴马这位特殊人物当选美国总统做出了贡献。但同样的外部环境是否也会阻止他取得成功?让奥巴马当选总统的“希望精神”能否击败经济和社会的绝望风气,抑或是西方国家对日趋迫近的全球衰退的恐惧会蔓延到亚洲,破坏中国和印度这两个大国的稳定局势?

在当选总统努力让美国人民做好准备,迎接未来困难的时候,这些是我们必须面对的主要问题。

随着经济困难一天天变得更加真实,11月4日晚因喜悦而哭泣的那些美国人,如今却陷入了深深的忧虑,因为就算他们还没有承受过这场危机的切肤之痛,他们也亲眼目睹了左邻右舍所承受的危机。面对着缓解这么多美国人所受苦难的迫切需要,奥巴马心里再清楚不过,只靠“希望的力量”根本不足以应对他所面临的巨大的挑战。

    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.
