印度占据先机

印度新任财政部长奇丹巴拉姆制定的2004/2005财年预算是对贫困的致命一击。印度是个发展中国家,经济快速增长,信息技术领域拥有令人目眩神迷的活力,但同时也是全球3亿最贫困人口的家园。去年5月的全国大选中,印度的农村选民将执政联盟赶下了台。教训非常明确:要解决农村的贫困问题。新任政府听到了人民的呼声,为印度和整个发展中世界提出了丰富多彩的脱贫计划。

印度新任政府是由国际发展领域真正的"梦之队"领航。总理曼莫汉·辛格是位全球最著名的发展经济学家。辛格1991年中就任印度的财政部长,开始了印度闻名于世的市场改革。他取消了几十年来政府对贸易、投资和开办企业的无效限制,开创了印度历史上从未有过的10多年的快速经济发展。

今春再次就任总理后,辛格将一支身经百战、国际闻名的团队带入了印度政府,这其中有20世纪90年代就曾成功担任财政部长的奇丹巴拉姆,以及主管计划委员会的Montek Singh Ahluwalia,计委是负责印度中期公共投资策略的主要机构。

    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.
