提给佐利克的问题

沃尔福威茨从世界银行辞职解决了一个问题,但是却又带来了一个新问题。当第一次提到沃尔福威茨领导当今世界最重要的发展银行候选人的时候,人们对于美国在伊拉克失败的设计师得到重赏感到不可思议。但是布什总统在其政府开始之初就寻求削弱多边机构和协议。任命沃尔福威茨看起来就是其中一部分。

布什的总统任期已经日薄西山,内外交困。人们是否应当让他任命世界银行的下一任行长呢?布什早就表现出缺乏判断力。为什么再给他一次机会呢?

美国任命世界银行的行长,而欧洲任命国际货币基金组织总裁。这一“老伙计”体制遭到人们的反对,现在尤为激烈。如果在一个本身管理存在漏洞的进程中挑选世界银行的总裁,那么,世行又何以有效地促进良好管理和反对腐败呢?由一个在美国历史上最为腐败和不称职的政府任命的人传播反腐败的道理究竟有多大的可信度呢?

    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.
