如何挺过特朗普时代

发自纽约——在短短一个月内,美国总统唐纳德·特朗普就成功地以令人眼花缭乱的步伐将混乱和不确定性——以及所有恐怖分子都梦寐以求的恐惧——散播开来。而不出所料,民众以及商界,民间社会和政府的领导人也都在努力对此做出恰当且有效的应对。

任何关于未来走向的看法都必然是短期性的,因为特朗普尚未提出详细的法案,国会和法院也没有充分回应他那一大堆行政命令。但承认不确定性可不是拒绝直面问题的理由。

相反,目前很明确的一点就是必须认真对待特朗普的言论和推文。在11月大选落幕后,人们几乎一面倒地寄望特朗普会放弃贯穿其整场竞选活动的极端主义立场。人们认为这个吹牛大师一定会改头换面,因为他意识到自己承担了世界上最具权势职位所赋予的重大责任。

    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.
