美中关系新蓝图

纽约—在未来几十年中,美国和中国如何应对两国相对实力的不断变化将是影响全球和平、繁荣和治理的最重要的因素。从长期看,目前的其他紧迫挑战——包括俄罗斯与西方的关系以及动荡的中东的各种事件——相比之下只能等而下之。

让中美关系变得危险的是两国的强大力量似乎决定要来一个碰撞。中国在习近平的强势领导下,政府不再遵循邓小平在国际事务上“韬光养晦,等待时机,永远不要当头”的遗训。中国开始公然追求扩张主义领土主张,特别是在南海,并明确表现出反对美国在该地区无限期主导的决心。中国人普遍认为,美国想要孤立、遏制和破坏中国。

令人不快的是,美国方面的诸多证据催生了这一情绪。不管美国决策者私下里怎么说,他们在公开场合几乎无一例外地表示要永远保持美国的世界主宰力——特别是在亚洲。

    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.
