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%。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Rage Against the Elites

    • With the advantage of hindsight, four recent books bring to bear diverse perspectives on the West’s current populist moment. 
    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
