争取德国的中间路线

柏林——

德国做出了自己的选择。盛大的联合政党轰然下野,社民党被推向政治深渊。曾经骄傲一时的吉哈德·施罗德的社民党现在也只能喘息一会。尽管中右翼人士获得了明显的胜利,基民党也未能逃过败局。但他们的损失还算过得去,基督民主联盟的姐妹党—基督社会联盟党也经历了劫数,其败象仅次于社会民主党。

所以看上去社会人民民主党跌落到谷底,中间社会联盟的支持率也直线下跌,中央民主联盟得到的票数最低。最明显的赢家是圭多·韦斯特威尔和他领导的自由党,紧随其后的是左翼和绿党—这三个政党都得到他们成立以来的最高票数。

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.
