特朗普和中东大甘埚

丹佛—美国总统交接的一大标志是全面的政策评估,其目标是确定保留哪些政策、撤销或改变哪些政策。随着当选总统特朗普即将入主白宫,他似乎急切地想要做出众多改变——其中一些比另一些更积极。

一些美国政策甚至等不到出台就要被扼杀。12个太平洋两岸国家之间的贸易协定似乎已经盖棺定论,特朗普向公众保证,他上任第一天就会搁置这个已经完成但仍有待美国参议院批准的协议

但在另一个关键中策领域,即将上任的特朗普政府所做的改变是值得欢迎的。这个领域就是中东。上两任政府——小布什政府和奥巴马政府——的渐进式地区方针意味着美国无法跟上事件的发展节奏。

    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.

    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.
