民主党提名人希拉里·克林顿承诺将继续现有外交政策。克林顿内阁将仍然是美国朋友和盟国热情的合作伙伴,希拉里内阁将明确告诉美国的对手美国外交政策的大致宗旨不会改变。实用主义指导下植根于实力的现行美国外交政策数十年来在确保和平和稳定方面总体来看是成功的。

随着唐纳德·特朗普的提名,共和党方面的情况已经发生了很大变化。但候选人仅仅是次要问题——即老大党本身迅速转型的表象,共和党的转型对国内和国外受众都是一种令人困惑的现象。

    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

    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.

    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.
