欧洲乃英国之家

布鲁塞尔——英国首相大卫•卡梅伦于荷兰发表的万众期待的演讲,完全能标志着一个关乎英国于欧盟地位的转折点。英国任何将权力遣送到威斯敏斯特的尝试都可能成为耗时又麻烦的谈判。正如过去的经历所示,有关宪法能力的内部讨论——本质上是政治上的钻牛角尖——能够分散对经济增长和就业问题此类更大压力事件注意。

企图去回顾欧盟现行法的主要部分(欧盟法律的主体),挑选出英国支持的部分,会创下一个危险的先例。事实上,这会导致零碎立法,分歧,以及欧盟潜在的分裂。然而,尽管权力遣送表面上看起来很吸引,但它会涉及持久以及复杂的程序——不能保证有一个好的结果。

当然,最终,要遣返能力还是退出欧盟,都是由英国政府以及英国人民决定的。但我强烈地相信,英国的成员国资格是位了英国和欧洲的利益。单一市场对英国经济贡献巨大的利益,而欧盟仍然是英国最大的贸易伙伴,它主导英国几乎百分之五十的出口率。

    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.
