全球化之下的政府

发自纽约——在我们生活的这个时代,大多数影响经济运行的重要力量并非由本地产生,而是发端于全球层面。即便如美国这般庞大的经济体也难免受到那些“国外”(比如中国,印度或者其他地方)事务的重大影响。

当然,经济全球化为全世界带来了某些巨大的好处,比如互联网和手机这类先进技术的迅速扩散。它同时也大幅降低了许多新兴经济体的贫困率——事实上单凭这一点,世界经济就应当继续保持开放和互联。

但全球化同时也滋生了某些亟待解决的严重问题。首先,鉴于避税天堂在全球的迅速滋长,逃税行为的操作空间大幅增加,跨国企业逃避合理税款的机会也比以往要多得多。

    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.

    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.
