应对欧洲的完美风暴

纽约——中国人常说在他们的文字和语言中危险和机遇并存在同一个词中。尽管危险和机遇往往的确会结伴而行,但欧洲目前的情况却很难看到机遇的影子。

目前欧洲局势如此艰险的原因之一是它完全出乎意料。二战结束70年、冷战结束四分之一世纪、巴尔干战争结束20年后,突然间,欧洲的政治、经济和战略未来似乎比一年前任何人的预测都更不确定。

担心的另一个原因是欧洲的危机不止一个。首先是经济领域:因为推行阻碍企业投资和聘用的政策,不仅目前经济增长缓慢,而且这种缓慢将延续下去,不给人以喘息的机会。 欧洲大陆左右两翼民粹主义政党的崛起就证明了民众的恐惧和失望。

    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.
