马克龙光环褪去?

日内瓦—马克龙节节胜利。不出一年,他就从一位政坛菜鸟,在没有建制派支持的情况下,摇身一变成为法国总统,并领导新成立的政党在议会中赢得巨大的多数优势。他可以将胜势保持下去吗?

马克龙最近的成功不仅要归功于幸运,也要归功于他利用裂痕的能力。对那些不相信政治建制的选民来说,他成功地提供了一个有吸引力的选项,这个选项不需要左右站边。他也被视为破坏性民粹主义的聪明的破坏者。

马克龙的经济计划尤其聪明,完全针对十多年来对法国经济沉疴的分析。他承诺要解放以僵化闻名于世的法国劳动力市场,减轻抑制了企业家精神的过重的税收负担。他还承诺要削减法国大而无当的国家(state),目前,国家花掉了GDP的57%。他将通过梳理叠床架屋的监管、理顺陈旧的福利制度来实现这一点。

    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.
