非洲的法国障碍

达喀尔—近几年来,中国和非洲建立了现代社会最成功的经济和贸易伙伴关系。中国得益于非洲的石油、矿产和市场,而非洲得益于贸易和基础设施、卫生、教育、小企业和中低档技术投资的增加。

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.
