IMF 来到德国

霍斯特·克勒辞去国际货币基金组织(IMF)执行总裁之职去参加德国总统竞选为我们提供了一个机会反省该组织和全球经济的现状。

在克勒履职执行总裁之际,全球正经历着自20世纪三十年代以来从未有过的金融动荡。人们对IMF的信心滑到了历史的最低谷。它在对东亚、俄罗斯和巴西的金融危机的管理上连续失误。阴云笼罩着科勒尔德前任。而他的获选继任本身也充满了争议。

诚然,在选择其领导者时,一个国际公共机构应该寻觅最合格的人选,选择的过程也应该尽量公开和透明。这是民主责任原则的要求,这些原则也正是IMF在发展中国家极力强调的。然而最后美国和欧洲间的一纸协议决定了IMF的领导者应该是个欧洲人。

    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.
