与极端伊斯兰教的战争

纽约—法国总理瓦尔斯说,法国正在与极端伊斯兰教打一场战争,他不是在作比喻。确实有一场全方位战争正在进行,穷凶极恶的恐怖分子袭击巴黎就是这场战争的一部分。但是,与大部分战争一样,这场战争并不只是一场宗教、狂热和意识形态之战。它事关地缘政治,终极解决方案也在于地缘政治。

巴黎、纽约、伦敦和马德里的罪行——针对咖啡馆、购物城、公交车、火车和夜总会的袭击——冒犯了我们最基本的人的价值,因为其中包含了蓄意谋杀无辜者和试图在全社会传播恐惧。我们习惯于将袭击者称为“疯子”、“反社会”,如果他们说他们的恶行并不只是出于疯狂,我们都会感到憎恶。

但是,在大部分情形中,恐怖主义并不植根于疯狂。这更可能是战争行为,只不过这场战争由弱者而不是有组织国家及其军队发动。伊斯兰恐怖主义是当下中东战争的一种反映——实际上也可以说是扩展。而在外部力量的干预下,这些战争正在成为一场地区战争——不断地演变、扩大,也越来越暴力。

    Whither the Multilateral Trading System?

    The global economy today is dominated by three major players – China, the EU, and the US – with roughly equal trading volumes and limited incentive to fight for the rules-based global trading system. With cooperation unlikely, the world should prepare itself for the erosion of the World Trade Organization.

    The Globalization of Our Discontent

    Globalization, which was supposed to benefit developed and developing countries alike, is now reviled almost everywhere, as the political backlash in Europe and the US has shown. The challenge is to minimize the risk that the backlash will intensify, and that starts by understanding – and avoiding – past mistakes.

    A Better British Story

    Despite all of the doom and gloom over the United Kingdom's impending withdrawal from the European Union, key manufacturing indicators are at their highest levels in four years, and the mood for investment may be improving.

    The UK’s Multilateral Trade Future

    With Brexit looming, the UK has no choice but to redesign its future trading relationships.
