意大利想表达些什么?

发自纽约——意大利大选的结果应该是向欧洲领导人传达了一个明确的信息:他们一直以来追求的紧缩政策已经遭到了选民的唾弃。

虽然相当理想化的欧洲一体化宏愿一直都是个自上而下推动的。然而鼓励技术官僚来管理国家——似乎绕过了民主程序——并将导致民众怨声载道的政策强加在这些国家身上却是另外一回事。

当欧洲的领导人们可以回避欧洲一体化这个词的时候,现实却是欧盟大部分地区都处于经济不景气之中。意大利自危机爆发以来所导致的产出损失跟1930年大萧条时相当。当前希腊的青年人失业率超过了60%,而西班牙则超过了50%。由于人力资本被破坏,欧洲的社会构造也随之出现了撕裂,而其未来正被推入险境。

    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.

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.
