卡钦斯基治国的教训

卡钦斯基孪生兄弟法律与正义党在波兰选举中败落让整个欧洲喘了一口气。但是,正当塔斯克的新政府就职的时候,吸取其失败的教训对于我们大家而言都是重要的。

许多政府通过推迟建立繁荣未来所需要的改革而错失良好的经济时机。法律与正义党所领导的政府于2005年当选,接收了高速增长的经济,但是却在巩固这一成就上无所作为。相反,私有化受到阻挠,而财政改革和削减管制的建议则停留在纸面上。

实际上,卡钦斯基政府实行了反改革的措施。分权(独立司法机关和中央银行)受到破坏,反而向所谓“强势”国家倾斜。法律与正义党控制了公共媒体,总检察长办公室被政治化,而且,利用媒体将其转变成为政党宣称的工具,其目的在于表明波兰是被叫做“尤达卡”的隐藏的恶意势力统治。这一势力欺骗了波兰人并让他们处于贫穷。

    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.
