极权主义2.0

莫斯科——在1970年的著述退出、呼吁和忠诚中,赫希曼认为民众表达对机构、企业和国家的不满大致有三种选择:他们可以离开、要求改革或者做出让步。这部著作出版45年来,赫希曼的框架已经在无数情况下得到了有效的应用。同样,用它来了解当前俄罗斯政坛能让我们得到启示。

2011- 2012年,俄罗斯许多受过良好教育和相对富裕的民众走上街头呼唤真正的民主,希望自己的“呼声”能从内部改变制度。但以压倒性选民授权重返第三届总统任期的普京却对此充耳不闻;相反,他还进加紧镇压民主。

因此,去年普京侵略并吞并克里米亚后,公开或潜在的持不同政见者只剩下“退出”(通过移民或只关注私人生活)或宣誓“效忠”(通过主动顺从或被动默许)这两种选择。鉴于普京的支持率通常超过80%,大多数俄罗斯人似乎选择了后者。

    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.

    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.
