欧洲大众民主的崛起

伦敦—英国投票脱离欧盟的冲击还有待消化。但欧洲领导人必须做好准备迎接后果。事实上,英国退出也许只是未来几年欧洲全民公决狂潮的序曲。

放眼欧洲,有47个反对党正在扰动政坛。它们正在赢得对政治日程的控制,根据自己的利益来制定日程——并在此过程中赢得权力。在三分之一的欧盟成员国,这类政党已跻身执政联盟,它们的成功驱使主流政党接受了它们的一些立场。

这些政党根基各异,但有一点相同:它们都试图颠覆几十年来决定着欧洲的性质的外交政策共识。它们是疑欧派;它们唾弃北约;它们想关闭边境并停止自由贸易。它们正在改变政坛面貌,用自身的激愤本土主义对抗它们所鄙夷的精英的世界主义,以此取代传统左右之争。

    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.
