固步自封的欧洲思维

巴黎——

马凯硕(Kishore Mahbubani)在亚洲有着相当高的地位,经常对欧洲持批评态度。最近,他在被问及亚洲应该如何向欧洲学习时回应说,欧洲首先是和平之洲、同情之洲、合作之洲。

 “亚洲”在文化、历史、宗教、社会和经济各方面都与欧洲截然不同。亚洲的多样化程度要大得多。但长期以来,“亚洲人”一直在关注并思考着欧洲人的实验。开明的日本精英为法德和解感到欢欣鼓舞。这一模式可以被日本仿照用于改善与以前的敌人——韩国与中国——的关系吗?当今,中国正在以不可阻挡之势迅速崛起,外交口气和手段正变得越来越强硬。在这种情况下,欧洲的历史经验——新仇旧恨都能一笔勾销——就显得尤其具有吸引力。

    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. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.

    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.
