伊朗的革命回响

发自美国纽约州石溪 —— 伊朗的动荡局面久拖不决,已经持续到推翻巴列维王朝革命 30 周年纪念之际了,这也令人不得不怀疑:伊斯兰共和国是否已经走到了尽头?如同 1979 年数百万伊朗民众涌向街头一样,人们又一次走上街头,齐声抗议去年 6 月总统大选的选举弊案。

而在大选中遭到对手暗算的两位总统候选人 —— 也都是当年的老革命 —— 则本能地把眼前的局面视为一次历史的重演。米尔·侯赛因·穆萨维把示威者的绿色标志看作是先知之屋( House of the Prophet )的颜色,并敦促其支持者每晚坚持在自家楼顶上高唱圣歌《真主伟大!》,可见反对派的第一条口号正是借用了 1979 年那些革命者的宗教口号。而就在最近,在 2009 年年末举行的大阿亚图拉侯赛因·阿里·蒙塔泽里的葬礼上,抗议者也再次唱响了这首圣歌。

但我们受到 1979 年记忆误导的可能性也很大,毕竟到目前为止依然难以断定另一场革命即将到来。然而也必须指出,当今伊朗社会与其政府之间的分歧要比 30 年前巴列维治下的分歧要大得多。因此变革似乎也是无法避免的。

    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.
