安倍晋三隆重登场

日本新首相安倍晋三毫不延迟地亮出新举措,尤其是对外政策方面。他刚就职一周就访问了小泉纯一郎政府统治下外交关系恶化的两大国家,中国和韩国,那正是朝鲜引发核爆炸的危机时刻。首相安倍晋三和中国国家主席胡锦涛一致认为朝鲜核试验“无可容忍”,这表明这一新动向可能有助于稳定亚洲的安全。

安倍晋三清楚地表明,他在上月末发表首相总体政策演说时,重点是强化外交政策。但是,虽然安倍晋三承诺他所描述的与中国和韩国“未来导向”的关系表明了不同于小泉纯一郎政府的做法,这一点颇受欢迎,但事实上他的政策议程暗示在很大程度上延续了日本突出外交与安全问题的方向。

特别是,安倍晋三的政策演说在强调“转向更坚决的外交手段”时,引用了日本向联合国安全理事会提出对朝鲜予以制裁的倡议,以及其通过与美国和其他国家紧密协调成功地监督决议全体一致通过的经验。与此同时,他表示意欲推进旨在加强亚洲国家之间团结的外交,这一团结建立在“日美世界及亚洲联盟”的基础上。

So, is Chinese President Xi Jinping right to double down on authoritarianism, and is the “China model” truly a viable rival to Western-style democratic capitalism?

    Whither the Multilateral Trading System?

    The global economy today is dominated by three major players – China, the EU, and the US – with roughly equal trading volumes and limited incentive to fight for the rules-based global trading system. With cooperation unlikely, the world should prepare itself for the erosion of the World Trade Organization.

    The Globalization of Our Discontent

    Globalization, which was supposed to benefit developed and developing countries alike, is now reviled almost everywhere, as the political backlash in Europe and the US has shown. The challenge is to minimize the risk that the backlash will intensify, and that starts by understanding – and avoiding – past mistakes.

    A Better British Story

    Despite all of the doom and gloom over the United Kingdom's impending withdrawal from the European Union, key manufacturing indicators are at their highest levels in four years, and the mood for investment may be improving.
