选民与福利国家对决

斯坦福——

加拿大总理斯蒂芬·哈勃自上任以来首次在本国议会中赢得多数席位,在国家选举中取得的成就令人瞩目,他的支持者是那些要求暂缓福利国家增长或者实现福利国家负增长的选民。

此外,2010年美国中期选举中民主党取得了巨大胜利,令人振奋不已,而哈勃的胜利恰随其后。由于金融危机和经济衰退后公共投资出现大幅度增长,因而美国中期选举这项竞选运动主要集中在政府的规模以及职责方面。英国首相大卫·卡梅隆同样也在一项抑制福利国家过度膨胀的政纲中取得胜利。

    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.
