欧洲乃英国之家

布鲁塞尔——英国首相大卫•卡梅伦于荷兰发表的万众期待的演讲,完全能标志着一个关乎英国于欧盟地位的转折点。英国任何将权力遣送到威斯敏斯特的尝试都可能成为耗时又麻烦的谈判。正如过去的经历所示,有关宪法能力的内部讨论——本质上是政治上的钻牛角尖——能够分散对经济增长和就业问题此类更大压力事件注意。

企图去回顾欧盟现行法的主要部分(欧盟法律的主体),挑选出英国支持的部分,会创下一个危险的先例。事实上,这会导致零碎立法,分歧,以及欧盟潜在的分裂。然而,尽管权力遣送表面上看起来很吸引,但它会涉及持久以及复杂的程序——不能保证有一个好的结果。

当然,最终,要遣返能力还是退出欧盟,都是由英国政府以及英国人民决定的。但我强烈地相信,英国的成员国资格是位了英国和欧洲的利益。单一市场对英国经济贡献巨大的利益,而欧盟仍然是英国最大的贸易伙伴,它主导英国几乎百分之五十的出口率。

    China in the Lead?

    For four decades, China has achieved unprecedented economic growth under a centralized, authoritarian political system, far outpacing growth in the Western liberal democracies. So, is Chinese President Xi Jinping right to double down on authoritarianism, and is the “China model” truly a viable rival to Western-style democratic capitalism?

    Whither the Multilateral Trading System?

    The global economy today is dominated by three major players – China, the EU, and the US – with roughly equal trading volumes and limited incentive to fight for the rules-based global trading system. With cooperation unlikely, the world should prepare itself for the erosion of the World Trade Organization.

    The Globalization of Our Discontent

    Globalization, which was supposed to benefit developed and developing countries alike, is now reviled almost everywhere, as the political backlash in Europe and the US has shown. The challenge is to minimize the risk that the backlash will intensify, and that starts by understanding – and avoiding – past mistakes.

    A Better British Story

    Despite all of the doom and gloom over the United Kingdom's impending withdrawal from the European Union, key manufacturing indicators are at their highest levels in four years, and the mood for investment may be improving. While parts of the UK are certainly weakening economically, others may finally be overcoming longstanding challenges.

    The UK’s Multilateral Trade Future

    With Brexit looming, the UK has no choice but to redesign its future trading relationships. As a major producer of sophisticated components, its long-term trade strategy should focus on gaining deep and unfettered access to integrated cross-border supply chains – and that means adopting a multilateral approach.
