让千年发展目标民主化

巴黎——

在9月20日~9月22日期间,世界领导人齐聚纽约,来鼓励人们加快完成联合国“千年发展目标”——有8个目标组成,包括消除极度贫困和饥饿、降低婴儿死亡率、实现普遍初等教育等。这些目标定于2015年实现。本次峰会的目的是评估在目标完成过程中的成功与失败,达成“具体的行动战略”。但是通过承认完成千年发展目标时所犯的错误以及选择一种截然不同的方式,本次峰会能让整个世界受益匪浅。

目前的千年发展目标只解决贫困和不发达的表面症状,却大多忽略了更深层的原因。千年发展目标总共关注18个目标——这些目标是最容易收集数据的。但是这样做的结果是,千年发展计划可能会因此忽视了造成不发达背后的原因——就像一个醉酒之人只在街灯旁寻找钥匙一样,因为那儿的灯光要亮些。

    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.
