乱作一团的伊朗总统政治

华盛顿哥伦比亚特区—伊朗前总统莫哈默德·哈塔米做出决定不去再度角逐总统大选,这已经显示出伊朗的总统政治现在混乱到何种地步。要想解开这团乱麻, 最重要的不是牢记谁会当选,而是记住这样一个选择将会如何反映出这个国家的最高领袖:阿亚图拉·哈梅内伊的意图。

不幸的是,最可能出现的结果将是这个伊斯兰共和国继续转变,从一个文官政府转化为一个军官国家,其中军事力量会在决定政治和经济事宜中发挥主要作用。

预测谁的确将会赢得选举是不可能的,但这不是因为伊朗是个民主国家。担任军事力量总司令的阿亚图拉·哈梅内伊同时还监督着举行选举的机构:监护委员会和内政部 (它们监督选举的程序),还有“巴西吉”民兵部队和革命卫队(IRGC)(它们非官方地控制着票箱和计票程序)。

    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.
