美中战略经济对话的益处

2006年9月,布什总统和胡锦涛主席确认美中经济关系的重要性和复杂性,并且在两国之间建立了“战略经济对话”制度。他们的意图并非是取代业已进行的其他经济对话制度,而是建立一个既全面又富有战略性的高级论坛。这一论坛还将通过在两国所面临的紧迫问题上展示出进展而建立互信。

这一制度在实现这些目标上已经取得实质性进展。美中两国已经建立了更为强大的关系和先前并不存在的建设性沟通渠道。这些创新帮助让美中关系即使在紧张的时候也保持稳定。由于我们具有高级别讨论的框架,我们能够而且确实拿起电话通话。

    下周在北京举行的战略经济对话会议将会集中讨论五大议题。它们是贸易完整性和产品安全、平衡的经济发展包括金融部门改革、能源效率和安全、环境可持续性以及双边投资。一批新领导人进入中国的高级职位,而且提议扩大到包括食品和产品安全、能源效率和安全以及环境可持续性,因此,这一会议是在一个敏感时期召开的。这些问题将对经济联系产生深刻的影响。

    Angela Merkel’s Endgame?

    The collapse of coalition negotiations has left German Chancellor Angela Merkel facing a stark choice between forming a minority government or calling for a new election. But would a minority government necessarily be as bad as Germans have traditionally thought?

    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.

    The Platform Economy

    While developed countries in Europe, North America, and Asia are rapidly aging, emerging economies are predominantly youthful. Nigerian, Indonesian, and Vietnamese young people will shape global work trends at an increasingly rapid pace, bringing to bear their experience in dynamic informal markets on a tech-enabled gig economy.

    Profiles in Discouragement

    One day, the United States will turn the page on Donald Trump. But, as Americans prepare to observe their Thanksgiving holiday, they should reflect that their country's culture and global standing will never recover fully from the wounds that his presidency is inflicting on them.

    How Women Shape Coups

    In Zimbabwe, as in all coups, much behind-the-scenes plotting continues to take place in the aftermath of the military's overthrow of President Robert Mugabe. But who the eventual winners and losers are may depend, among other things, on the gender of the plotters.

    The Abnormality of Oil

    At the 2017 Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, the consensus among industry executives was that oil prices will still be around $60 per barrel in November 2018. But there is evidence to suggest that the uptick in global growth and developments in Saudi Arabia will push the price as high as $80 in the meantime.

    The Saudi Prince’s Dangerous War Games

    Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is working hard to consolidate power and establish his country as the Middle East’s only hegemon. But his efforts – which include an attempt to trigger a war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon – increasingly look like the work of an immature gambler.
