梅的舞台

伦敦——摆在英国新任首相特雷莎·梅面前的是一个艰巨的任务:执行英国人——或者更确切的说,英格兰和威尔士——选民“退出欧盟”的要求并管理这项工作所带来的意义深远的后果。她所面临的这项挑战令近年来的历届前任首相相形见绌。但她或许有能力完成这项任务。

任何人都不应低估梅。像在一系列危机中已经证明勇气的德国总理默克尔一样,完成任务所需的一切工具都掌握在梅的手中。她聪明坚韧,对废话没有耐心。她拥有强烈的公共服务意识及同样强烈的价值观。她不受任何意识形态的约束,非常善于掌握控制权,她在自我划定的界限中行事,以确保熟悉所处理的问题。

梅在参与的多数战役中获胜,对那些曾用卑鄙手段对付她的人毫不留情。但她在党内却树敌甚少,并在普通党员中颇受欢迎。这是一种强大的组合——她需要充分加以利用以领导英国的退欧进程。

    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.
