把欧洲放入欧盟预算

多数独立观察者达成一致意见,认为欧盟的预算已不再反映它的主要任务与政策目标。40%以上的开支被用于农业这样一个日益下滑的产业上,而用在未来研究和发展以及欧盟必须承担起新责任的领域(诸如:内部和外部安全)上的经费却寥寥可数。

此外,欧盟收入的主体由来自各国国内预算的款项构成。成员国政府将这些收入看作“他们的钱”并把它们比作“他们的收入”。于是,单单就国家财政必须所付以及欧盟内部农民和地区所得这两个问题的欧盟预算谈判得以形成。欧盟公民对欧盟的总支出无清晰概念,他们只对无限期保持对他们有利的汇兑感兴趣。

欧盟的决策程序规定,代表各成员国政府的欧洲理事会在做重要决定时奉行一致通过原则,而将欧洲议会和欧洲委员会限制在一个较次要的地位,这使得欧盟预算与欧盟目标愈走愈远。

    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. 
    • But moving beyond Xi's anti-corruption purge to build robust and lasting anti-graft institutions will not be easy, owing to enduring opportunities for bureaucratic capture.

    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.
