反悔退出的承诺

伦敦—在英国人民投票脱离欧盟前,难民危机是欧洲所面临的最严重的问题。事实上,这场危机是引发更大的英国退出灾难的关键因素。

英国退出投票是一次巨大的冲击;投票次日早晨,欧盟解体似乎实际已在所难免。其他欧盟国家(特别是意大利)酝酿中的危机令欧盟的生存前景雪上加霜。

但随着英国公投第一波影响的退潮,一些意料之外的事情正在发生:这场悲剧看上去不再像是既成事实。随着假象中的情况成为现实,许多英国选民生出一种“买家的后悔”。英镑暴跌。苏格兰再次举行公投可能性大增。昔日“脱欧”阵营领导人陷入了奇怪的自我毁灭的内讧,他们的一些追随者也开始领悟国家和他们个人所面临的悲惨的未来。公共观点转变、请愿议会举行第二次公投的签名已经成为一场运动,到目前为止获得四百万多人的支持。

    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. 
    • But moving beyond Xi's anti-corruption purge to build robust and lasting anti-graft institutions will not be easy, owing to enduring opportunities for bureaucratic capture.

    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.
