电动汽车发展的正确方向

纽约——电动汽车的出现会让我们感到欣喜,但一想到现有的以汽油为动力汽车的数量:8亿5千万辆,我们可能就乐观不起来了。如果电动汽车也要达到如此数量,恐怕还需许多年的努力。面对如此的现实,住在赫尔辛基的公务员Jiri Räsänen刚开始也同样感到沮丧,但随后他和他的朋友们想到了一个好主意:为什么不能在保留汽车的前提下,而只是更换发动机呢?

这样的想法不仅解决了现有汽车的问题,而且也给汽车生产厂家指出了一条新的出路。目前,他们的日子并不好过。新车的销售量下滑的很厉害,如果他们另起炉灶,开设新工厂显然不是好时候。所以这正给我们一个机会,用电动引擎来替代汽油动力的汽车。

一项命名为“eCars - Now!”的项目已经启动。该项目由Räsänen牵头,与其说是一个公司,不如说是一个在芬兰的项目小组,不过,目前,该项目正处于模型阶段,他们希望通过推广此项目,以在全球范围得到共鸣。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Rage Against the Elites

    • With the advantage of hindsight, four recent books bring to bear diverse perspectives on the West’s current populist moment. 
    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
