奥朗德还是暴乱?

巴黎--不管是好还是坏,如今欧洲陷入了一场反对财政政策的暴乱之中,该政策谴责了欧洲国家出现财政紧缩,而没有增长。它是否会发动军事政变证实这种情况是站不住脚的?法国的新任总统佛朗索瓦·奥朗德是否能改变德国坚定的立场?

无论是在荷兰还是在西班牙,要把公共部门赤字减少到国内生产总值的3%以下,这是不大现实的。除非愿意采取惩罚措施,要不然欧盟就会给与他们额外的回旋余地---记住每一次欧洲大众都会做出消极的反应。希腊最近一次政府选举并未产生结果,将于六月进行新一轮普选。

爱尔兰比较幸运,情况没有那么令人担忧。但是在财政政策的公投上,可能时间会拉长。的确,去除全票一致同意的条款,就会减少这种困难,有利于该政策的实施。

    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.
