摩洛哥选择

拉巴特—阿拉伯之春爆发已经三年,民主世界对于如何应对变得更加迷茫了。美国国务卿克里再次启动了美国的中东调停计划,而美国与其最可靠伙伴之间分歧毕露:埃及军方领导人怨恨西方一开始支持穆斯林兄弟会的穆尔西任职总统;沙特阿拉伯担心与美国谈判的伊朗成为更有野心的地区霸权。

    Whither the Multilateral Trading System?

    The global economy today is dominated by three major players – China, the EU, and the US – with roughly equal trading volumes and limited incentive to fight for the rules-based global trading system. With cooperation unlikely, the world should prepare itself for the erosion of the World Trade Organization.

    The Globalization of Our Discontent

    Globalization, which was supposed to benefit developed and developing countries alike, is now reviled almost everywhere, as the political backlash in Europe and the US has shown. The challenge is to minimize the risk that the backlash will intensify, and that starts by understanding – and avoiding – past mistakes.

    A Better British Story
