可持续发展之年

纽约—2015年是我们这一代人让世界通往可持续发展的最佳机会。7月到12月间的三次高级别谈判可能重塑全球发展日程,并给全球经济运转的关键变化以重要的推力。联合国秘书长潘基文在他的《尊严之路》(The Path to Dignity)报告中呼吁我们采取行动,可持续发展之年已经开始。

2015年7月,全球领导人将齐聚埃塞俄比亚亚的斯亚贝巴,制定全球金融体系改革。2015年9月,他们将再次齐聚一堂批准指导2030年前国家和全球政策的可持续发展目标(Sustainable Development Goals,SDG)。而在2015年12月,领导人们将在巴黎汇合,实施一项全球协议阻止人为造成的气候变化的危险的增加。

这些峰会的基本目标是让世界走上可持续发展或可持续包容增长之路。这意味着增长带来平均生活水平的提高;意味着增长让收入分配各部分的人都受益而不是只对富人有好处;这意味着保护而不是破坏自然环境。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Rage Against the Elites

    • With the advantage of hindsight, four recent books bring to bear diverse perspectives on the West’s current populist moment. 
    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
