HICCup宣言

纽约—在卫生界,几乎人人都认为,现在花100美元用于卫生行为——锻炼和合理营养、前期糖尿病咨询、风险监测等——能够在未来节省200多美元,还能改善结果。当然,这个数字是模糊的,充满了方法论的漏洞,但对于追求这样的方式则很少人有异议。

但个人和社会均很少有根据这一认识行动者。个人通常缺少毅力或渠道实行健康饮食和身体锻炼,且周边充满了鼓励他们及时享乐的坏例子,缺少努力和克制的好例子。此外,从更广的制度性角度来说,花钱的和获得好处的并不是同一批人。

我没有抱怨,而是在最近决定成立HICCup,即卫生干预合作委员会(Health Intervention Coordinating Council),这是一项自己做主的咨询服务,旨在说服地方机构着眼于长期并充分干预社区。出于现实里有,该项目有一些指导方针——但任何希望不受我们规则行事的人大可以这样做。

    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.
