道德风险缠身的巴基斯坦经济

拉合尔——

希拉里·克林顿刚刚结束的伊斯兰堡之行为东道主带来了一些慰藉,克林顿此行是为了参加她和巴基斯坦外长沙阿·马哈茂德·库雷希今年早些时候在华盛顿共同启动的战略对话的第二次会议。美国承诺为巴基斯坦国内的多个“非常醒目”的项目提供五亿美元资金。这是去年贝拉克·奥巴马总统签署的法案中划拨给巴基斯坦的十五亿美元中的一部分。

在<>克林顿抵达伊斯兰堡的前一天,民主巴基斯坦之友组织在此地召开了一次会议。奥巴马曾在去年纽约联合国大会间隙,主持了该组织的前一次会议。那次会议的参加者包括时任英国首相戈登·布朗,世界银行与国际货币基金组织的领导人以及多个国家的政府部长。在伊斯兰堡会议中,民主巴基斯坦之友组织同意为巴基斯坦的能源发展计划提供资金,并要求巴基斯坦人就其他被认为对经济至关重要的领域之发展提出建议。

    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.
