巴西政治僵局

圣地亚哥—巴西人认为,巴西政治把他们甩在了身后:有一天,在任总统任命了一位受人欢迎的前总统进入内阁以使他免于被起诉,专家们马上宣布他已经掌控局面。第二天,联邦法官驳回了他的任命,申诉和反诉纷至沓来,数百万人走上街头要求弹劾总统,没人确定谁掌控了局面。

巴西正面临1975年重建民主以来最大的政治危机。总统罗塞夫花了很大的力气才获得一位数的满意率。直到最近,她也许可以得过且过地熬到2018年四年任期结束,不过这只是因为反对党不愿给她的政府所创造的经济烂摊子擦屁股。

如今,没人可以笃定。为了拯救她的前任卢拉,罗塞夫让拯救她自己的总统任期更加艰难了。如今,巴西民主运动党(PMDB,曾经是最大的执政党)已经退出执政联盟,弹劾罗塞夫所需要的三分之二国会投票似乎不再不可及。

    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.
