为什么美国不该再选乔治·布什当总统

我从来没热衷参与过党派政治,但现在已经是非正常时期了。乔治·W·布什总统正在把美国和世界的安全拖入险境,同时也损害了美国信奉的价值观。迫于布什班子的种种丑行,我不得不站出来反对他。

2000年布什竞选时曾承诺实行"温和"的外交政策。如果再次当选,布什的霸权信条-和侵略伊拉克的行径-将会得到承认,而全世界都不得不为此付出惨重代价。通过在全民投票中批判布什的政策,美国将有机会重新赢得世界的尊敬与支持。

    Whither the Multilateral Trading System?

    The global economy today is dominated by three major players – China, the EU, and the US – with roughly equal trading volumes and limited incentive to fight for the rules-based global trading system. With cooperation unlikely, the world should prepare itself for the erosion of the World Trade Organization.

    The Globalization of Our Discontent

    Globalization, which was supposed to benefit developed and developing countries alike, is now reviled almost everywhere, as the political backlash in Europe and the US has shown. The challenge is to minimize the risk that the backlash will intensify, and that starts by understanding – and avoiding – past mistakes.

    A Better British Story

    Despite all of the doom and gloom over the United Kingdom's impending withdrawal from the European Union, key manufacturing indicators are at their highest levels in four years, and the mood for investment may be improving. While parts of the UK are certainly weakening economically, others may finally be overcoming longstanding challenges.

    The UK’s Multilateral Trade Future

    With Brexit looming, the UK has no choice but to redesign its future trading relationships. As a major producer of sophisticated components, its long-term trade strategy should focus on gaining deep and unfettered access to integrated cross-border supply chains – and that means adopting a multilateral approach.
