巴基斯坦走向消亡?

新德里——

巴基斯坦正处于一个引爆点。萨尔曼·塔西尔省长的暗杀事件清楚地显示了巴基斯坦当前所面临的严峻挑战。它能在挑战中幸存下来吗?还是会颠覆?对世界来说,巴基斯坦的命运是一个迫切的问题,甚至或许是一个存在主义问题。毕竟,巴基斯坦是一个催生恐怖分子的地区性拥核大国。

巴基斯坦的动荡有着深刻的根源。在一战和二战之后,美国和欧洲大国遥坐在远方的谈判桌上,肆意划定边界,由此出现了伊拉克、以色列、科威特、约旦以及沙特阿拉伯, 当前中东的大多数问题也是因此产生的。美欧绘制中东新地图时所依据的假设是, 通过引入西方的单一民族国家制度,“穆斯林亚洲”的基本法则可以得到改变。恰恰相反,这一做法使这一地区产生许多实体,没能凝聚为多个统一的国家。

    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. 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.
