奥朗德入驻爱丽舍宫

巴黎--这是法国第九次采用直接普选的方式来进行总统大选。十七年来,社会党候选人奥朗德连续三次落选,此次胜选也是左派17年来首次重新入驻法国爱丽舍宫。毫无疑问,此次选举意义重大,第一就是法国重新归于稳定。

欧洲许多国家都在寻求平衡的过程中遇到大量困难,法国是其中最大的国家。1789年的法国大革命首次使法国深陷长期的动荡之中,一直贯穿于两个帝国,三个君主国以及五个共和国。在不到200年的时间中,法国先后制定了13部宪法。

当前的第五共和国已经历时54年,是法国大革命以来持续时间第二长的政权。有时候,他们也会讨论建立第六共和国,来解决这些有限的但实实在在的困难。然而最近的一次总统选举结果显示(第一轮80%,第二轮81%),毫无疑问当前的制度势力依然很强大,法国人依然钟爱于它。

    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.
