学会爱上多极世界

纽约—美国外交政策正站在十字路口。自1789年建国以来,美国便一直是一个扩张的力量。它通过战争在十九世纪横扫北美,二十世纪下半叶开始主宰全球。但如今,面临中国的崛起、印度的活力、非洲激增的人口和经济、俄罗斯的拒绝服从、自身的无力控制中东局面以及拉丁美洲的摆脱其事实霸权的决心,美国的实力已经达到了极致。

摆在美国面前的一条路是全球合作。另一条路是野心受阻导致军国主义爆发。美国以及全世界的未来取决于这一选择。

全球合作具有双重重要性。只有合作能带来和平,摆脱无用、危险、终将破产的新军备竞赛——这次包括网络武器、空间武器和下一代核武器。只有合作能让人类战胜紧迫的地球挑战,包括生物多样性的破坏、海洋的毒化以及全球变暖对世界粮食供给、大量干旱土地和人口稠密的沿海地区所造成的威胁。

    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.
