将英国带到欧洲的核心之中

布鲁塞尔—目前欧盟的核心国家,除最初的6个创始国外,是组成欧洲货币联盟的15个国家。这些国家具有趋同的经济体系和共同的货币及财政政策。最大的外围国家是英国。

仍然有许多人希望英国加入欧洲经济货币联盟。如果欧盟想要突破共同的经济和货币政策的界限,在发展安全防卫政策的同时发展共同的外交政策,英国必须参与。英镑和欧元之间的汇率波动扰乱了欧盟成员国之间的市场力量,有时候甚至在伦敦造成了负面冲击。从长期来看,如果欧元区开始施加更大的影响力,英国就冒着严重的被孤立的风险。

但是,鉴于伦敦作为国际金融中心的重要地位以及英国和50多个英联邦国家的特殊关系,其它欧洲国家也应该理解英国要求其拥有自己的货币的观点。因此,欧元区应该为英国提供一个体面的折衷方案,允许英国成为欧洲经济货币联盟的完全成员,加入其所有的机构——例如欧洲中央银行以及部长级的欧元集团,同时在英国和第三国家关系中可以继续使用英镑。

    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.
