移民和新阶级分化

新加坡——英国的欧洲事务影子大臣帕特·麦克法登最近警告工党党员他们应该尽可能去接纳全球经济,而不要像对待瘟疫一样对移民问题避之唯恐不及。如他所言,“你可以从别人的痛苦中寻找满足感,也可以给别人一个机会。我认为我们的政策应当着重于给别人机会。”

在这个被针对移民、银行家、穆斯林、“自由派精英”、“欧盟官员”、世界主义者或哪怕仅有些许陌生的任何事物的不满所占据的世界里,像这样明智的看法已经十分罕有。世界各国领袖应该多加听取。

在美国,由茶党活动分子支持的共和党正威胁要关闭政府,理由仅仅因为奥巴马总统为已经在美工作生活多年的非法移民提供了获得公民身份的机会。英国独立党(UKIP)正力推一项计划,在五年内禁止移民取得永久定居资格。俄罗斯副总理罗戈津曾经公布了一段视频承诺要将垃圾从莫斯科“清理”出去——他把主要来自前苏联加盟共和国的外来务工者称之为垃圾。

    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.

    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.
