是将圣雄甘地请回来的时候了

纽约——国大党在印度大选中出人意料地获得压倒性胜利,舆论普遍的持欢迎态度。很多人相信,国大党秉承了务实的价值观,采取有利于经济发展和帮助穷人的政策,如果这样走下去,印度就会变成一个伟大的国家。印度的商界金融界人士尤其感到欣慰,他们认为随着经济自由化的不断深入,国大党为他们打开了发财之门。

美国人也有高兴的理由,麻烦不断的印度左派已经被完全清除出了现任政府,议会中的席位也缩减到了可怜的24席。去年,印度共产党试图杯葛国大党提议的美印核协议,结果没能得逞,现在他们又誓言要报复。

由于印度人民普遍希望地区和平和宗教和解,这样一来,代表印度教的人民党的失败也不足为奇了。对国大党来说,来自右派势力的威胁也已解除。人民党把国大党描述成在对待恐怖分子问题上立场上软弱,将穆斯林妖魔化,看来,他们的目的最终也没有达到达成。

    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.
