新的反犹主义

现在是暴力频发时期。有些人相信我们正面临一场新型种类的冲突,也就是所谓“文化战争”,例如逊尼派与什叶派穆斯林之间的冲突,或者非洲和亚洲各种族部落之间的冲突,或者伊斯兰教主义者与西方之间的冲突。然而,这些冲突的深层原因却很有可能更为传统。

分属特定的文化团体只不过是全球化胜利者与失败者爆发冲突的一个借口。残酷无情的领导人动员那些失去坐标的追随者。特别是那些全球化的失败者常常以那些没有未来可以憧憬的年轻人为代表,能够被诱导采取甚至是采取自杀式行动来对抗指称的敌人。

在这样一个时代或许大家不应该对此感到吃惊,那就是我们古老的而且是致命的反犹主义仇恨正死灰复燃。其卷土重来以对个人进行攻击的传统形势进行,正如最近法国一个年轻的犹太人惨遭杀害,或者是毁坏标志性建筑,如公墓和犹太教堂。但是也存在一种更为普遍的对所有犹太事物的敌视情绪。

    Angela Merkel’s Endgame?

    The collapse of coalition negotiations has left German Chancellor Angela Merkel facing a stark choice between forming a minority government or calling for a new election. But would a minority government necessarily be as bad as Germans have traditionally thought?

    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.

    The Platform Economy

    While developed countries in Europe, North America, and Asia are rapidly aging, emerging economies are predominantly youthful. Nigerian, Indonesian, and Vietnamese young people will shape global work trends at an increasingly rapid pace, bringing to bear their experience in dynamic informal markets on a tech-enabled gig economy.

    Profiles in Discouragement

    One day, the United States will turn the page on Donald Trump. But, as Americans prepare to observe their Thanksgiving holiday, they should reflect that their country's culture and global standing will never recover fully from the wounds that his presidency is inflicting on them.

    How Women Shape Coups

    In Zimbabwe, as in all coups, much behind-the-scenes plotting continues to take place in the aftermath of the military's overthrow of President Robert Mugabe. But who the eventual winners and losers are may depend, among other things, on the gender of the plotters.

    The Abnormality of Oil

    At the 2017 Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, the consensus among industry executives was that oil prices will still be around $60 per barrel in November 2018. But there is evidence to suggest that the uptick in global growth and developments in Saudi Arabia will push the price as high as $80 in the meantime.

    The Saudi Prince’s Dangerous War Games

    Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is working hard to consolidate power and establish his country as the Middle East’s only hegemon. But his efforts – which include an attempt to trigger a war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon – increasingly look like the work of an immature gambler.
