为什么政府如此无能?

米兰—全球经济步履蹒跚,这已经不是什么秘密了。欧洲正在危机中挣扎,这场危机的根源在于具有结构性缺陷的货币和经济联盟。美国正在从金融危机和大规模去杠杆化中慢慢恢复,仍在经历缓慢增长、持续失业、收入分配状况恶化以及结构性挑战,也没有拿出多少有效或坚决的政策动作。

与此同时,在主要新兴经济体,中国的改革进程陷入了停顿,今年秋天的领导人交接将厘清不少内部利益目标和权力关系。印度早已失去改革动力,现在正在经历经济放缓和投资者信心潜力丧失。

这些问题的不利影响相互交织、相互强化,并传向整个全球经济。尽管人们显然已经知道一定有东西出了大问题,但对重大变化的预判却十分缺乏,而且都没有说到点子上。

    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.
