新德里—如今,许多人国家问题越来越淡定了,因为互联网让他们能够与相去甚远的文化和民族构建联系。但国家对于边境动荡仍然极度敏感。毕竟。领土——包括土地、海洋、天空、河流和海床——是国家身份的核心,也决定着国家的安全和外交政策。

对付领土纠纷,国家可以放弃某些主权(因而削弱实力和影响力),也可以采取更稳健的国防战略,以应对当前挑战、消除未来威胁为目标。如今许多亚洲国家选择了后一种战略。

就拿印度洋和其他东亚地区的领土纠纷来说吧。中国一再地——并且越来越坚决地——主张其广大的海洋国土面积。中国的入侵再次点燃了动摇地区现状的分歧,整个亚洲的国家都在重新考虑战略立场。

    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.

    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.
