测量包容性增长

华盛顿—千年发展目标(Millennium Development Goals)即将在明年到期,届时人们将能够指出该计划自2000年实行后所实现的重要成就。在此期间,极端贫困减少了一半;大约1亿贫民窟居民获得了安全的饮用水,数百万人获得了医疗;大量女孩能够接受教育。但仍有大量未竟的事业等着我们去完成,各条战线的表现也存在巨大差异。

千年发展目标在2015年到期后,发展日程仍将继续,新增与包容性、可持续性、就业、增长和治理有关的目标。即将实行的可持续发展目标(Sustainable Development Goals)取决于新项目如何开发、实施和测量。

强劲的经济增长让人们得以改善生活,为新思想创造茁壮成长的空间。但这样的增长往往伴随着环境破坏,从而降低人类健康和生活质量,威胁水供应,破坏生态系统,阻碍子孙后代的增长。此外,破坏自然资本的短期增长极易陷入枯荣循环,导致生活在贫困线附近的人口陷入赤贫。

    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.
