诺贝尔奖的不公

    新加坡--阿赫蒂萨里是个了不起的人物。他因其毕生从事的工作获得诺贝尔奖名至实归。但是,挪威诺贝尔奖委员会引述其在印尼亚齐省的工作作为获奖理由则有失偏颇。

    法新社最近的电稿指出,阿赫蒂萨里“最为杰出的成就是在2005年监督印尼政府和自由亚齐运动反叛组织之间的和解,从而结束了令大约一万五千人丧失、长达三十年之久的冲突”。但是,正是印尼人民和领导人本应该因亚齐省政治奇迹而获得诺贝尔奖。

    更为重要的是,诺贝尔奖得颁奖理由提到亚齐省,这就对诺贝尔委员会颁发奖项时的心理座标提出了严重质疑。该委员会成员好似越发成为历史的囚犯。他们继续假定我们生活在世界历史由西方统治的时代。

    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.
