欧洲的聪明亚洲支点

马德里—几百年来,世界经济的焦点第一次出现了东移。美国开始将“支点”设在亚洲,特别是中美关系,似乎一直修昔底德陷阱周围起舞——作为历史范式,崛起大国难免与现有大国发生碰撞。但是,考虑到中美两国在国际事务前沿彼此均相当谨慎,欧洲应该如何游刃有余于其中?

欧盟正站在关键性的历史分隔点上,我们需要有自己的东向支点——建立在欧洲的优势上的明确果断的亚洲战略。尽管欧盟人口只有中印之和的五分之一,在亚洲的军事部署也可忽略不计,但其12.6万亿美元的经济规模是世界之最。

亚洲国家政府对此也有所注意,亚洲国家严重依赖经济增长解决年轻且不断增长的人口的就业和繁荣需求。目前亚洲已超过北美成为欧盟主要贸易伙伴,占其总贸易规模的三分之一。光是与中国的贸易每天就超过10亿欧元,仅次于美国。

    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.
