马克龙能圆满吗?

坎布里奇—马克龙战胜玛丽娜·勒庞(Marine Le Pen)是所有支持开放的自由民主社会,厌恶本土主义和仇外对手的人急需的好消息。但对抗右翼民粹主义的斗争还远未胜利。

勒庞在第二轮投票中赢得三分之一多选票,尽管除了她自己的国民阵线之外,只有一个政党——尼古拉·杜邦-艾尼昂(Nicolas Dupont-Aignan)的微不足道的法国觉醒党(Debout la France)——支持她。并且投票人数较前几次选举急剧减少,这表明有大量选民感到不满。如果马克龙在未来五年中失败,勒庞将以复仇姿态卷土重来,本土论民粹主义者也将在欧洲和其他地区赢得优势。

作为候选人,在这个反建制政治的时代,马克龙受到一个事实的帮助:他是传统政党的局外人。但作为总统,这个事实成为一个奇异的劣势。他的政党前进运动(En Marche!)成立不过一年。他需要从头开始在下个月的国民大会选举中打造立法机关多数。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Rage Against the Elites

    • With the advantage of hindsight, four recent books bring to bear diverse perspectives on the West’s current populist moment. 
    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
