欧洲人真的害怕移民吗?

伦敦——极右翼政党注定将会在即将举行的欧洲议会选举中取得重大成功。虽然分析师对此次民粹主义思潮是否稍纵即逝,是否会严重影响欧盟决策,以及是否会在全国大选中继续下去观点不尽相同,但他们至少都同意一点:往往是反移民情绪造就了对极右翼政党的支持。但表面现象和世代相传的看法往往具有欺骗性。

民粹主义形式多种多样,其在各地的成功逻辑也不尽相同。但无论是在英国、法国、匈牙利、意大利、希腊、荷兰还是丹麦,对经济的不满(往往与欧元相关)、对政治体制的愤怒、民族主义思潮和对欧盟负面情绪的死灰复燃都是反复出现的主题。

移民在欧盟民粹主义言论中地位显赫也是事实。但由此就得出欧洲移民的存在刺激极端主义无疑将大错特错。缺乏有效政策来管理令欧洲选民不满的移民事务似乎更有道理。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Rage Against the Elites

    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
