亚洲的前途

马尼拉—对发展中亚洲来说,明年将出现重大挑战和新的责任,有政治上的,有经济上的,也有社会上的。通往可持续包容性增长的道路是艰难的,但也意味着亚洲和世界其他地区的令人振奋的机会。

进入大衰退五年已逾五年,但发达国家的复苏依然萎靡不振。欧洲领导人必须做出艰难决定,以解决欧元危机、重振增长。而尽管美国开始显露出经济复苏信号,但它仍面临着所谓“财政悬崖”的政治僵局。事实上,尽管先行指标比前几年略有好转,但风险仍然极高。

在亚洲,财政审慎使得重振2010年全球经济增长的刺激措施得以实施。但过去几十年来的经济转型来到了十字路口。一些低收入经济体赶了上来,但由于外部环境恶化和内部低迷,多年来两位数的GDP增长率将难以维系,特别是印度和中国。

    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.
