全球化是否真的助长了民粹主义?

布鲁塞尔——在大西洋的两岸,左翼及右翼民粹主义都在呈现崛起之势。共和党假定总统候选人唐纳德·特朗普是民粹主义在美国最鲜明的棋手。欧洲的民粹主义势力则分很多种——从西班牙左翼政党Podemos到法国右翼政党国民阵线——他们的共同点是反对中间党派,并且反对总体制度。究竟什么应该为选民不断增长的对现状的反抗负责?

普遍为人接受的解释是民粹主义崛起是由“全球化失败者”的反抗所导致的。这种逻辑认为,欧美领导人连续多轮的贸易自由化谈判“掏空”了国内生产基地,削减了低技能工人可以找到的高薪岗位数量,导致这些人被迫在长期失业和琐碎的服务性岗位之间作出选择。这些人受够了这样的现状,据称现在正因为当权党派领衔开展上述“精英工程”而对其抱有一种抗拒态度。

这种解释乍听上去似乎很有说服力。毕竟,全球化的的确确从根本上改变了经济现状,实现了低技能工作向发展中国家的转移——民粹主义分子对这一点的强调永远都是不厌其烦的。

    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.
