齐普拉斯是新卢拉吗?

美国剑桥—希腊总理齐普拉斯有机会成为希腊的金大中(韩国总统)和卢拉(巴西总统)——推进财政责任和自由市场的左派。与齐普拉斯类似,金大中和卢拉都在经济危机中当选总统。两人上任伊始便面临着反对派政客才能忽视是国际金融约束。

掌握了权力的金大中和卢拉能够从政治上和思想上做出调整以适应他们所面临的现实,启动急需的改革。一些改革是“保守”(或“新自由主义”)的,绝不可能在右派政客手中实行。但其他改革与他们一生的承诺一致。金大中治下的韩国开始遏制财阀(家族所有的巨型企业集团)。卢拉治下的把戏实施了家庭补助金(Bolsa Familia)计划,该计划向家庭直接派发现金,将数百万人带出了贫困。

但是,齐普拉斯和他的左翼联盟党(Syriza)执政已经六个月,却仍没有看清金融现实,无法借助他人的角度看待问题。就希腊债权人所要求的条件进行公投的决定表明,他们在政治上也没有认清现实。

    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.
