欧洲的难民机会

罗马—欧洲的所谓难民危机原本绝不应该成为一种紧急状况。安置一百万寻求庇护者不应该成为欧盟的艰巨挑战——欧盟拥有5亿公民,每年都要迎来三百多万移民。不幸的是,缺乏协作应对措施正在将这个可管理的问题变为一场尖锐的政治危机——如德国总理默克尔所正确地警告的,这场危机可能毁掉欧盟。

大部分欧盟成员国都自私地只关注自身利益。这让它们彼此对立,也制造了恐慌,让难民的境况更加危险。明智的全面计划可以平息恐慌。相反,欧盟却偏好于寻找替罪羊——而希腊则是最新的指责对象。

希腊被指责在处理和安置移民方面做得不够。然而,即使希腊没有受到经济危机影响,要求像它这样的小国独自承担这一负担也是不合理的——特别是面临一年800,000多难民过境的情况。这是一个欧洲和全球问题,而不仅仅是希腊的问题。

    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.
