没有约束的以色列

特拉维夫—以色列长期占领巴勒斯坦领土正在给其国际地位造成不可挽回的伤害——或者传统智慧这样认为。事实上,以色列目前拥有历史上从未有过的全球影响力,诸多新的国际挑战让传统上被巴勒斯坦问题所“劫持”的以色列外交政策赢得了大量回旋余地。

以色列认识到西方一边倒支持以色列的做法引起了巨大的群众反对,它一直在其他地方寻找经济以及最终的政治伙伴。从2004年到2014年,以色列对亚洲出口增长两倍,去年达到了167亿美元——占其总出口的五分之一。

    The global economy today is dominated by three major players – China, the EU, and the US – with roughly equal trading volumes and limited incentive to fight for the rules-based global trading system. With cooperation unlikely, the world should prepare itself for the erosion of the World Trade Organization.

    The Globalization of Our Discontent

    Globalization, which was supposed to benefit developed and developing countries alike, is now reviled almost everywhere, as the political backlash in Europe and the US has shown. The challenge is to minimize the risk that the backlash will intensify, and that starts by understanding – and avoiding – past mistakes.

    A Better British Story

    Despite all of the doom and gloom over the United Kingdom's impending withdrawal from the European Union, key manufacturing indicators are at their highest levels in four years, and the mood for investment may be improving.

    The UK’s Multilateral Trade Future

    With Brexit looming, the UK has no choice but to redesign its future trading relationships. As a major producer of sophisticated components, its long-term trade strategy should focus on gaining deep and unfettered access to integrated cross-border supply chains – and that means adopting a multilateral approach.
