如何防止对儿童有害的压力

剑桥——世界各国的政客们往往在卸任之后,才会关注提升学校的教学质量,增加就业机会,减少犯罪率和延长人口寿命等问题。为了国家的长期利益,他们是否有政治勇气在任上就采取行动呢?或者还是为了急功近利而采取空洞而无资金投入的政策之后,然后说这是不可能完成的任务呢?

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.
