亚洲的东盟之心

发自雅加达——东南亚联盟如今正迎来一个决定性的时刻。一直以来,全世界都在评估东盟各成员国作为一个整体性投资、商品和服务市场的潜力和可行性。 而与此同时,东盟各国也正在努力构建一个不受外部干涉的联盟,并以此形成一个基于共同安全和共同繁荣的新秩序。

从地缘政治学的角度来看,东盟具备有足够的地理优势,有资格得到诸如中国、印度、日本,澳大利亚和韩国等更强大经济体的认可,并与之平起平坐——而这些经济体如今也史无前例地成为了带领全球经济复苏的领头羊。同时,东盟也为打造世界上最具活力的经济整合平台做出了突出贡献,并在现实中扮演着更广泛经济合作和一体化区域枢纽的角色。

我们不能低估了区域经济整合对全球稳定和安全的重要性。中国、日本,印度和东盟的年度GDP总和已经达到了14.45万亿美元,与美国的14.62万亿美元旗鼓相当。更重要的是,东亚经济体的经济年平均增长率预计会达到5.1%,而美国只有3.2%。

    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.
