导航能源革命

利雅得/伦敦——几十年来,国际能源格局一直相对稳定,沙特阿拉伯、伊朗和阿尔及利亚等生产国将石油和天然气出售给的美国和欧洲的消费者。但随着引人注目的技术、经济和地缘政治变化重塑全球商业关系,能源格局可能会在短短几年内面目全非。

我们需要全新的治理结构,以便超越生产者和消费者之间传统的双边关系。在迅速变化的世界确保能源安全需要精心管理环环相扣的多重关系。只有可以分享和探讨复杂理念的包容性国际论坛才有可能完成引导新时代能源应用、生产和消费的任务。

正在发生的变化意义深刻。许多能源出口国国内消费量急剧增长。从历史上看,能源在上述国家一直扮演着廉价资源的角色。如今,他们正越来越多地采取措施取消补贴、引入市场价和提高效率——这些都是与能源进口国相关的典型政策。英国石油公司预计中东地区凭借其丰富的化石燃料储量,到2035年一次性能源消费将增长77%。

  3. Murdoch's Last Stand?

    Rupert Murdoch’s sale of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney for $66 billion may mark the end of the media mogul’s career, which will long be remembered for its corrosive effect on democratic discourse on both sides of the Atlantic. 

    From enabling the rise of Donald Trump to hacking the telephone of a murdered British schoolgirl, Murdoch’s media empire has staked its success on stoking populist rage.

    The Dangerous Delusion of Price Stability

    Since the hyperinflation of the 1970s, which central banks were right to combat by whatever means necessary, maintaining positive but low inflation has become a monetary-policy obsession. But, because the world economy has changed dramatically since then, central bankers have started to miss the monetary-policy forest for the trees.

    Jeffrey Frankel, a professor at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and a former member of President Bill Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisers, outlines the five criteria he uses to judge the efficacy of tax reform efforts. And in his view, the US Republicans’ most recent offering fails miserably.

But ensuring that those changes are positive – helping to fight tumors and mosquito-borne illnesses, for example – will require scientists to apply the utmost caution.
