活力复苏的印度

新德里——随着全世界最发达经济体在已经被称为大衰退的梦魇中苦苦挣扎,印度在新年伊始也重新评估了目前的状况,并发布了2008-2009财政年度经过修正的估计GDP增长。修正后的估计增长率保持在7.1%的健康水平上。

即便是在笼罩着世界市场的一片愁云惨雾里,也没有人害怕印度衰退实在是一种令人惊异的现象。就连悲观主义者也只预计会出现速度较慢的正增长。

这的确是印度经济的巨大转变,多年以来,印度经济都以被嘲弄地称之为“印度增速”的速度——大约保持在3%左右——缓慢地增长,这样的增长速度被其他多数亚洲国家远远地抛在了脑后。自从1947年独立四十多年后,印度都未能摆脱民族主义经济的困扰,把政治独立和经济自给自足同等看待,因此整个国家始终未能摆脱官僚保护主义以及经济萧条。

    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.
