过去的尼克松,现在的中国

加州克莱蒙特——40年前美国总统理查德·尼克松踏上访华之路时,他不可能想象到自己这次赌博会释放多大能量。立竿见影的外交影响当然是重塑欧亚大陆的地缘政治平衡,逼迫苏联采取守势。但美中关系恢复的长期结果近期才开始显现,中华人民共和国实现了与世界经济的融合。

    The global economy today is dominated by three major players – China, the EU, and the US – with roughly equal trading volumes and limited incentive to fight for the rules-based global trading system. With cooperation unlikely, the world should prepare itself for the erosion of the World Trade Organization.

    The Globalization of Our Discontent

    Globalization, which was supposed to benefit developed and developing countries alike, is now reviled almost everywhere, as the political backlash in Europe and the US has shown. The challenge is to minimize the risk that the backlash will intensify, and that starts by understanding – and avoiding – past mistakes.

    A Better British Story

    Despite all of the doom and gloom over the United Kingdom's impending withdrawal from the European Union, key manufacturing indicators are at their highest levels in four years, and the mood for investment may be improving. While parts of the UK are certainly weakening economically, others may finally be overcoming longstanding challenges.

    The UK’s Multilateral Trade Future
