黎巴嫩的审判时刻

伊斯坦布尔——

眼下,黎巴嫩正准备起诉真主党特工谋杀前总理拉菲克·哈里里(Rafik Hariri)。与此同时,该国而经济形势不容乐观。2009年3月的IMF任务报告将矛头指向该国长达30年的政治动荡,指出“在未来相当长时间内黎巴嫩都经不起折腾”。IMF对黎政府的反危机行动计划表示肯定,但对其是否能够完全执行持保留态度。

2009年下半年,萨阿德·哈里里(Saad Hariri,拉菲克·哈里里之子)政府呈现出气象一新的局面,令IMF感叹其“为生机勃勃的经济改革带来了新希望。”但计划中的改革成功与否在很大程度上要取决于黎巴嫩主要政治团体——逊尼派和什叶派——是否能够精诚合作。从目前的情况看,形势不容乐观。

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.

    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.
