“J经济学”能拯救韩国经济吗

发自首尔——韩国新任总统,代表中左翼民主党的前人权律师文在寅,找到了一份最适合自己的工作。虽然朝鲜日益嚣张的挑衅行为可能会继续占据新闻头条,但文在寅总统之路能否取得成功,将在很大程度上取决于他的经济政策。

文在寅面对的有利环境是当前全球和韩国经济体都呈现出了复苏的迹象。韩国半导体和石化产品出口连续第六个月实现正增长,四月份的出口总额比去年同期高出24%,主要股价指数都已经回升至历史新高。

当然,朝鲜目前这种超越其常规安全威胁的行为也会对韩国经济造成影响。但是区域紧张局势的缓和——这个进程可能会在美国总统特朗普与中国国家主席习近平的会谈中启动,而且或许会进一步推进到恢复与朝鲜的谈判——将带来消费者和商业情绪的复苏。

    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.
