再次重组世界银行

安纳·帕拉西奥(Ana Palacio)

马德里—眼下,三位被提名人——尼日利亚财政部长奥孔乔-伊韦拉、前哥伦比亚财政部长奥坎波、以及美国提名的达特茅斯学院校长金辰勇——正在角逐世界银行新行长人选,我们不妨退后一步,评估以下世界银行的一贯轨迹。除非新行长脑中有一幅清晰的未来图景,并能够镇住来自世行内部的压力,那么他在这个笨拙而复杂的机器中吃不了兜着走。

全世界的目光都集中在三位候选人的优势和资质上,特别是他们在经济和金融方面的胜任能力。但真正的挑战是决定世界银行的方向,使之反应世界现状,并据此校准世行的工具。不可避免地,从某种程度上讲,经济和金融尽管仍然是世行各领域举动的组成要素,但已不再是其主要推动因素。

    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.
