欧洲的法德梦幻团队

巴黎—国际货币基金组织(IMF)将其2014年和2015年全球增长预期分别从3.7%和3.9%调低到3.3%和3.8%时给出的原因是欧元区前景日益暗淡,而德国增长大幅放缓是主要因素。毕竟,欧元区仍贡献了全世界13%的产出(以市场价格衡量),与中国大致相当。

欧洲经济低迷反映在其政治局面中,许多欧洲选民如今陷入了无望的情绪,日益滑向极端意识形态。但两位极有名望的经济学家——法国政府政策规划总顾问让·皮萨尼-费里(Jean Pisani-Ferry)和德国改革派经济学家领袖人物亨里克·恩德莱恩(Henrik Enderlein)在他们即将发表的文章中设计了一条前进道路。

皮萨尼-费里和恩德莱恩的任务是为欧洲两大经济体设计新的改革战略,法国的关注点是结构性改革,德国的关注点是增加投资。我们希望这篇将在12月1日发表的文章能够实现突破,让长期宕机的欧元区经济引擎重新发动。

    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.
