铭记加沙

伦敦——从政府那里看到的只是数字,生活的甘苦只有人民自己才知道。这一差别能够解释为什么当今世界人们会对政治如此愤怒和不满。此外,光是国内问题就已经够棘手了,至于国际问题,遥远的距离让人们感到更加困惑和厌倦。与往常一样,正在遭遇苦难的人们才是最需要世界关注的。

一个令人瞩目的事实是,有150万人正困顿于以色列、埃及和地中海之间的加沙地带。西方已经孤立了哈马斯控制之下的加沙政府。本周,美国国会将讨论切断对约旦河西岸的巴勒斯坦权力机构的援助的问题。但在现阶段,国际社会应该更多地关心巴勒斯坦人民,而不是更少。

统计数字表明,80%的加沙人口依赖联合国食品援助。青年失业率高达65%。联合国人道主义事务协调办公室网站上有一个完整的数据库,列出了以色列允许开入加沙地带的满载各种供给物资的卡车数量。

    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.
