中国是特朗普假想的敌人

上海--2017年2月19日是中国改革的总设计师邓小平先生逝世20周年的日子。就在香港回归中国还剩下5个月的时间,邓公与世长辞,未能实现他生前希望亲自到香港“自己的土地上走一走”的夙愿。20年来,邓小平作为开启中国经济改革与开放的领导人而被后人纪念。始自邓小平,改革与开放成为中国最大的“政治正确”。

而在大洋的彼岸,自从推崇美国再次伟大的特朗普总统入住白宫以来,看上去中美之间的贸易战箭在弦上,白宫方面也摆出对在贸易中“占尽便宜”的中国实施严厉制裁的架势,指控中国操纵了汇率。接下来中美之间到底会发生什么事,依然有很大的不确定性,但未来数年中国将面对一个在经贸关系上更加强硬的美国,或许是确定的。

面对捉摸不定的局面,中国人常说,要稳住阵脚,做好自己的事。20多年前,也是面对国际形势的变化,邓小平先生曾跟当时的中国领导人说过,要记住三句话,“第一句话,冷静观察;第二句话,稳住阵脚;第三句话,沉着应付。不要急,也急不得。要冷静、冷静、再冷静,埋头实干,做好一件事,我们自己的事。”

    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

    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.
