沙特阿拉伯的权力的游戏

普林斯顿—沙特阿拉伯国王萨勒曼刚刚废黜了57岁的王储穆罕默德·本·纳伊夫,替之以自己31岁的儿子穆罕默德·本·萨勒曼,完成了自2015年萨勒曼继承王位以来权力集中的过程。

穆罕默德王子——西方统称为MBS,是萨勒曼国王最钟爱的儿子。81岁的萨勒曼将他立为王储表明他与自开国国王阿卜杜拉齐兹·伊本·沙特以来王位几十年间由其儿子兄终弟及的传统彻底决裂。

    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.
