改善高等教育效果

伯克利——高等教育是一项极好的投资,每多受一年高等教育意味着平均增加10-15%的回报。对大学毕业生而言,这意味着一生增加数十万美元的收入。不幸的是,渴望接受高等教育的学生,尤其是那些来自低收入家庭和表现不佳中学的学生,缺乏必要的信息对报考哪所院校和学习哪个专业才能得到最大回报做出明智的选择。

    Whither the Multilateral Trading System?

    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
