利比亚之被迫进行革命者

的黎波里——“阿拉伯之春”光明的希望正逐渐消退,其地区不仅仅是在埃及。从对西方政府的抗争到遥远的沙漠绿洲里的种族冲突,利比亚革命的势头正在逐渐衰弱。

目前利比亚困境重重,这在很大程度上归咎于临时政府领导的起义。全国过渡委员会(NTC)很难作出抉择,只是假装要成立一个民选政府。被推翻的穆阿迈尔·卡扎菲上校所领导的政府的典型特征是机构内部瘫痪以及依赖下意识行事,而NTC依然保留了很多诸如此类的问题。利比亚革命若想取得成功,新一代国家领导人就必须要彻底打破过去的思想。

在执政的42年间,卡扎菲身边的顾问一直是自己年轻时的玩伴,然后就是一些技术专家。结果,推翻其政府的领导人所具备的政府经验微乎其微。此外,在一个将任何政治活动均视为叛逆行为的国家,很多人预测刚成立的NTC从开始就会遭受重重困难。而事实上也的确如此。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
