叛变的俄罗斯傀儡

发自莫斯科——最近,车臣共和国总统拉姆赞·卡德罗夫出面邀请车臣相对温和的民族主义反对派头目艾哈迈德•扎卡耶夫回国,还承诺要给予其特赦和官职,无论是当地剧院的主管还是文化部部长,随便扎卡耶夫挑选。

而扎卡耶夫看来也已经准备好接受这个邀请。事实上,此人在民族主义反对派阵营中根本没什么地位,车臣叛军中也没几个人会把他当指挥官看待;而他最近派遣密使,试图组建一支由自己指挥的武装力量的举动也最终宣告失败。

但与此同时,扎卡耶夫却一直与卡德罗夫保持着相当良好的关系,并公开称赞了卡德罗夫所取得的成就——使车臣获得实质独立。而克里姆林宫方面也应该不会反对这场政治交易。

    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.
