非洲仍在冉冉升起

约翰内斯堡——非洲经济体的蜜月期是否已经结束?不到十年前,随着许多国家取得惊人的GDP增长和发展,非洲大陆的经济之梦似乎正在变成现实。现在,随着非洲大陆在充满挑战的外部环境面前的脆弱性逐渐显现,现有的增长速度已经很难保持。

中国经济增长放缓、大宗商品价格暴跌以及不止一次安全危机的拖累下,非洲的年度总体GDP增长在2010到2015年仅为3.3%,这一速度仅能勉强跟上人口增长——与2000到2008年4.9%的记录相比速度大幅放缓。

但深层次观察表明局势也许不像看上去那样严重,得出这样的结论有两个主要原因。首先,虽然平均增速有所回落,但某些非洲国家在近年来实现了蓬勃发展。事实上,石油出口国经济摇摇欲坠以及萨赫勒和北非地区爆发安全危机已经将2010年以来的GDP总量拉了下来;但在非洲其他地区,GDP发展呈加速之势,从2000到2010年的4.1%增长到2010到2015年的4.4%。

    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.
