埃塞俄比亚新的恐怖气氛

维也纳——今年,埃塞俄比亚将收到来自欧盟,美国和其他主要捐助国家25亿美元的捐款。对于这个世界上最贫困的国家来说,以上的捐款还不包括来自非盈利组织提供的有关医疗保健,饥饿救助以及其他难以计数的服务等。

这种援助是必要的,因为长期以来,埃塞俄比亚一直受到贫困,疾病和自然灾害的袭扰。国家现有的资源难以应对急剧膨胀的人口数量。这也是众多明星——从鲍勃·吉尔道夫为埃塞俄比亚饥民举办的ive Aid音乐会到安吉丽娜·朱莉和布拉德·皮特收养孤儿——救助埃塞俄比亚的原因,这些都是对国家和机构救援者不可能提供帮助的补充。

尽管有这么多的救助,埃塞俄比亚政府的威权统治依然不可动摇。总理梅莱斯·泽纳维消灭了反对者,在位已经高达18年。他领导的政党占据着政府要位。更为糟糕的是,在领土面积广大的农村地区,他的手下控制了国家宣传机器,压制其他媒体的声音。

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.

    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.
