华盛顿特区——

马哈茂德•艾哈迈迪•内贾德犯下了所有伊朗总统都会犯的错误,那就是挑战国家最高领导人哈梅内伊的权威,他注定要失败。

内贾德提出的挑战是伊朗政治中可预测的一部分而已,现在这种挑战已经被归结为“总统症”。这种症源于总统的自信,作为一位在总统大选中受欢迎的领袖,他不应受限于最高领袖的监督。但是因为民主党总统多次尝试巩固中央集权,但最终都以失败而告终,所以这个伊斯兰共和国的历史充满着不光彩的因素。最终,神权战胜了王权。

    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.

    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.
