La reconfiguration chinoise

MILAN – Malgré un ralentissement économique chinois largement évoqué dans l’actualité, la croissance annuelle du PIB national demeure supérieure à 7%, bien loin de constituer un signal d’alarme – du moins pour le moment. La question se pose néanmoins de savoir si les efforts du gouvernement autour de la mise en œuvre de réformes structurelles et de la transformation du modèle de croissance de l’économie portent bel et bien leurs fruits – c’est-à-dire si les déséquilibres internes continuent ou non de menacer la performance économique à long terme. La Chine demeurant le premier moteur de croissance économique à l’échelle mondiale, la réponse à cette question nous importe à tous.

L’examen de la stabilité économique chinoise exige que l’on prenne en compte les conflits et tensions qui affectent le pays – comme autant d’entraves aux progrès de la croissance. Pour commencer, les contentieux territoriaux opposant la Chine à nombre de ses voisins, parmi lesquels le Japon, le Viêtnam et les Philippines, menacent la paix dans la région, de même que l’intégration économique.

Par ailleurs, les relations entre la Chine et les États-Unis se détériorent, en raison de tensions autour de cette stratégie de « pivot » vers l’Asie qui caractérise la politique étrangère américaine, ainsi que de différends en matière de cyber-sécurité. La Chine a d’ores et déjà restreint l’accès à son marché pour plusieurs entreprises technologiques américaines, d’autres mesures de ce type étant à prévoir.

    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. 
    • But moving beyond Xi's anti-corruption purge to build robust and lasting anti-graft institutions will not be easy, owing to enduring opportunities for bureaucratic capture.

    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.
