为气候安全融资

纽约—全球金融体系的目标是将全世界的储蓄配置给生产率最高的用途。当金融体系运转良好时,这些储蓄被引导进入提高生活水平的投资;当金融体系功能失调时(比如近几年的情况),储蓄就流入房地产泡沫和引起环境破坏的项目,包括那些加剧人为气候变化的行为。

2015年将是一个转折点——努力建立一个有利于气候安全而不是气候变化的全球金融体系。7月,全世界政府将在亚的斯亚贝巴会晤构建全球金融新框架。

该会议的目标是促进支持可持续发展的金融体系。可持续发展意味着经济增长具有社会包容性和环境可靠性。5个月后,全世界政府将在巴黎签署新的关于控制人为气候变化和引导资金流向气候安全能源的新全球协定。这一协定建立在本月秘鲁利马谈判所达成的早期进展的基础上。在巴黎,金融也将是重中之重。

    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.
