Seven Years in Afghanistan

喀布尔-七年前,随着那场推翻了塔利班政权的战争,我们在阿富汗踏上了征程。自从那时起,无论对于阿富汗还是对于全世界来说,我们在前进的道路上已取得了很大的成就。

2001年中,在不到45天的时间里,我们阿富汗人摆脱了恐怖主义和塔利班的威胁。当时的阿富汗人民充满了憧憬,盼望着美好的未来立即来临。现在,一些憧憬已经实现:我们的孩子回到了学校读书;大约85 %的阿富汗人民目前享有某种医疗保健,而在2001年之前,这个比例仅为9 % ; 2000年的世界上最高的儿童死亡率在阿富汗,目前已经下降了2 5 %。民主、新闻自由、经济上的成就和改善的民生,所有上述这一切都成为现实。

但遗憾的是,我们仍然在与塔利班和基地组织作战。到底是什么我们做得不对,从而让我们和全世界感到不安全呢?

    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.
