 A street of "think tanks" in the United States

A street of "think tanks" in the United States

I remember that there is a song called "Bridge in Beijing", which sings that the bridge in Beijing becomes a scenic line. In Washington, there is also such a scenery, but not a bridge, but a street. This is not because the streets here are unique, but because of their unique naming.

In Washington, there are usually two perpendicular street signs on the sign at each corner to indicate which street the two crossing streets are, such as 13th Street/S Street, 15th Street/K Street, 7th Street/C Street, etc. You will be confused by these names when you first arrive. After some inquiry, it was clear that the original American street name was this (there was no research on how to name the streets in other American cities): the horizontal or east-west street was named in English, followed by A Street, B Street, C Street; The vertical or south-north ones are named by Arabic numerals, which are 1st Street, 2nd Street, 3rd Street, and so on. This is the combination of 13th Street/S Street. For example, the White House, Bush's residence, is located between I-E Street and 15-17 Street, while the Capitol Hill is located near the 1st Street.

However, there are also exceptions. For example, there is a well-known "lobby street" in Washington - K Street and I Street, but there is no "J Street". It is said that the reason why "J" was "deprived" of the naming qualification was because it looked too similar to "I" and was easily confused, so it was eliminated on the principle of first come, first served.

The horizontal and vertical ones have been solved. What is the name of the oblique street? It doesn't bother Uncle Sam. There are so many states in the United States. It's enough to use a few states' names, so there are Virginia Avenue, New York Avenue, Pennsylvania Avenue, etc.

Among so many avenues, I would like to highlight Massachusetts Avenue. Before coming to the United States, a friend of the United States Consulate reminded him that if he wanted to contact anyone for an interview after arriving in Washington, he should go to Massachusetts Avenue. At that time, because there were too many things to prepare, I didn't care about this. I didn't think about yesterday, but I stumbled across the legendary "Think Tank Street".

Maybe many people are more familiar with K Street. Since the failure of CNOOC's acquisition of Unocal, this street famous for its rich lobbyists has been known by many Chinese people. However, in terms of the number of think tanks, Massachusetts Avenue may not lose to K Street: Carnegie Peace Foundation, Brookings Institution, Heritage Foundation, Cato Institute, International Economic Research Institute and Johns Hopkins University, as well as the Center for Strategic and International Studies, the American Enterprise Research Institute and George Washington University. These well-known think tanks are located on both sides of Massachusetts Avenue.

It seems not surprising that there are many think tanks, but what is more interesting is that many of them have special research projects on China issues and even China research centers. Some people say that this is due to the increasing influence of China in the international arena. To put it mildly, there are more and more "eating Chinese food".

Huang Jing, a senior researcher at the Brookings Institution, said that the United States invested a lot of energy in studying the Soviet Union 20 years ago; Now that China is strong, the research craze in the United States is turning to China, and the momentum is even stronger.

Of course, from the perspective of China, it should be a good thing for more people to study us, which will help improve the international community's understanding of China. For example, during major events such as the China-US Strategic Economic Dialogue, many think tanks will stand up and make rational voices. Zhu Zhouliang
