韩国的反省

首尔—韩国总统朴槿惠因为腐败和滥用权力指控而被弹劾,并被剥夺总统地位,这动摇了韩国的政治基础,也分裂了选民。1997年亚洲金融危机——从某种程度上说,这场危机种因于朴槿惠之父朴正熙的有缺陷的经济政策——以来,韩国从未面临如此绝境。

目前判断谁能接替朴槿惠入主青瓦台为时尚早;特别选举将在5月9日举行。但有一点是明确的:随着朴槿惠的黯然下台,韩国执政党必定会发生剧变。长期以来,从政治黑金到朝令夕改的外交政策的各种治理问题一直折磨着韩国,解决这些治理问题需要新的活力,而新的活力又需要新鲜血液。

这场韩国政治危机始于2016年10月,有人指控朴槿惠施压财阀——韩国巨型家族企业集团——将巨额资金转入由其密友崔顺实控制的两家基金会。关于朴槿惠“朋友圈”的流言让许多韩国人感到背叛——这位总统曾经宣誓要进行不一样的领导。

    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.
