肯尼亚的发展失败了吗?

内罗毕—一个月前,肯尼亚在大选后突然爆发了骚乱,造成1000多人失去生命和几十万人无家可归。这次骚乱的恶劣程度和规模震惊了整个世界。

当然,肯尼亚以前也在大选期间经历过局势的紧张,并且了解非洲的人也不会不知道这个国家依然面临的许多难题。但是最近几年情况似乎一直很好。今年的竞选活动也进行得特别和平,有数百万人在12月27日参加了投票,他们花了数小时步行和排队投出了他们的选票。

也许更根本的问题在于,肯尼亚一直被公认为发展的“好学生”,甚至有时被认为是非洲复兴的典范。正在实施的包含了一系列雄心勃勃的宏观经济、法制和宪法改革方案的“肯尼亚2030年远景框架”就是在与世界银行密切合作下进行的。

    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

    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.
