印度的新希望

美国剑桥—印度的最新选举可能是2014年最重要的积极经济事件。印度选民果断地拒绝了自1947年脱离英国独立以来几乎一直统治印度的国大党。他们可能会因为这一决定而感到高兴。

国大党党首、前总理拉吉夫·甘地(Rajiv Gandhi)遗孀索尼娅·甘地(Sonia Gandhi)自1998年以来一直在垂帘听政,而总理辛格只不过是一个傀儡。在她的领导下,国大党追求民粹主义日程,增加转移支付,导致印度年经济增长率在2013年下跌至4%以下。人均GDP仍在4,000美元左右徘徊,不到中国的一半。

新当选总理纳兰德拉·莫迪在竞选中承诺给全印度带来就业和收入的快速增长,就像他出任首席部长的古吉拉特邦那样。在莫迪的领导下,古吉拉特邦成为一个商业友好之邦,经济活动得到了扩张,吸引了来自印度国内外的商业投资。

    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.
