类似地,关于非法或不道德劳工使用情况的报道——比如中国的苹果供应商——促使公司严密关注供给链。关于高管薪酬过高的批评让许多公司董事会薪酬委员会匆忙召开会议讨论应对之策。但有一类被报道的情况尚未引起董事会足够的关注:儿童性骚扰。

在英国,上个月曝光了耸人听闻的新闻,足球俱乐部梯队——年轻选手通往职业水平的捷径——存在侵犯儿童的情况。上个月,98家英国业余和职业俱乐部或多或少地被此事涉及。

    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

    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.

    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.
