中国门罗主义?

新德里—中国外交部长王毅即将访问印度,并与印度新政府成员做首次会面,包括外交部长斯瓦拉吉(Sushma Swaraj)和更重要的总理莫迪。但王毅的印度之行意义并不在熟络关系。两国领导人将会交换彼此的措施,他们所结果将决定世界上人口最多的两个国家之间的关系走向。

从某种程度上说,双边关系已经在朝积极方向发展,特别是在经济领域。但是,随着贸易不平衡日益明显地向有利于中国的方向倾斜,印度也感到日益不满。王毅是熟悉印度事务的老牌政治家,他将竭尽全力淡化不平衡,促进深化联系。

更严峻的挑战是解决两国在喜马拉雅山区的边境纠纷——这也是世界上最长的未定国界。事实上,两国的“特别代表”已就该问题进行了17次会晤,但几无进展,原因就在于中国担心其桀骜难驯的西藏和新疆等边境省份的问题。

    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.
