世界政治的荒年

纽约—从十几岁开始,我就着迷于国家政策的排列和阴谋。如今,我开始关注更广泛的政治趋势以助理解全球经济问题。

这些趋势之一是欧洲民主国家显而易见的政治碎片化和极化。边缘运动——其中一些在现有政治结构内部进行,也有一些寻求建立新政治结构——正在给传统政党制造压力,增加它们动员支持者的难度,有时还会造成名副其实的伤害。老牌政党急于证明自己并不软弱,在与它们合作的问题十分谨慎。

由此所造成的在当今重要问题上的拒绝合作形成了巨大的经济政策影响。曾经,决策通过政治中心的谈判形成——这也是西方民主长期以来的“锚”——而如今日益受到极左和极右顽固势力的影响。

    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.
