内贾德的衰落

伊朗总统内贾德或许由于其对美国的强烈批评而在整个穆斯林世界赢得支持,但是在伊朗国内,他却在丧失实力。他的政治对手们正在赢得新的实力,而且伊朗人们对于经济持续衰退越发不满。

伊朗伊斯兰共和国建立以来,一直都是弱势总统制度,最终的权力属于最高领导人,首先是霍梅尼,现在是哈梅内伊。伊朗的首位总统萨德尔当选后一年就被解职。从那时以来,伊朗政权就不再容忍强势总统,而且还不断表明总统应当听命于最高领导人。

两年前内贾德当选总统,人们寄予厚望。他保证“把石油价格下降到每个伊朗家庭都能承受的水平”,而且要打击腐败。但是,他的支持者以及在竞选时为他组织动员选民的伊斯兰革命卫队、动员队民兵以及武装团体的哥们首先得以加官晋爵。例如,石油部将价值13亿美元、没有竞标的合同授予了革命卫队所属的一家石油公司,而内贾德任命他的姐夫为内阁秘书。

    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.
