民主党及共和党能否自我治愈?

华盛顿——决定美国民主及共和两大政党总统候选提名人的争夺终于有望结束。两党因此面临重新集结开展秋季竞选活动的挑战——而今年大选期间完成这项任务比往年要难得多。

虽然从数学上看伯尼·桑德斯赢得足够的代表承诺从而获得民主党提名几乎不太可能,但他仍然没有退出竞选,而这意味着希拉里·克林顿还不能着手进行修复工作。但赢得热切支持桑德斯的数百万选民支持对希拉里构成了严峻的挑战。桑德斯绝非仅仅是个简单的对手;他还是反对克林顿及现行“体制”立场的领导者。

2008年克林顿和巴拉克·奥巴马之间的竞争似乎结束得相当友好。虽然克林顿一直坚持到竞选结束,但随着竞选逐渐接近尾声,她开始淡化了反对奥巴马的言论。那年夏天,她采取了一项不寻常的举动,那就是亲自前往会议大厅,敦促民主党人对奥巴马的提名予以鼓掌通过。

    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.
