特朗普时代的可持续性

哥本哈根—遏制全球变暖、加强环境保护的力量必须做好准备成为唐纳德·特朗普赢得美国总统竞选的附带牺牲品。从特朗普的竞选纲领及其共和党队友的发言看,美国环境保护遭受重创,监管将大幅减弱,美国国内石油、煤炭和天然气生产商将蠢蠢欲动。

环保主义者正在评估潜在伤害,并制定战略避免控制国会山的极端反可持续性势力所带来的严重后果。在最糟糕的情况下,美国将不再绿色,并且国际合作也将遭受重创。

在最近的马拉喀什气候会议(COP22)上,人们的注意力集中在特朗普政府的众多可能扼杀去年在巴黎COP21上所形成的气候协定的行动上。协定可能“遇刺而亡”——被特朗普撕毁。或者也可能“饿死”,美国拒绝采取行动或贡献应有的比例。或者也可能“虐死”,美国要求其他所有国家做更多。

    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.
