选择印度

法国总统希拉克本月晚些时候访问印度并签署向印度出售六架攻击潜艇的协议。这将再一次确认印度正在崛起成为经济和外交大国。美国和欧盟在某些时候寻求同中国建立的“战略伙伴关系”看起来与民主的印度更为可行和可取。

印度总统是穆斯林,总理是锡客人,外长是印度教徒,而其执政的国大党主席则是出生在国外的基督徒。正如中共在过去二十年中所做的一样,印度的成功毫不逊色。实际上,从1991年国际收支平衡危机爆发以来,印度一直在摈弃其社会主义遗产而且其年度经济增长率达到7.5%,只比中国略低。印度已经向世界贸易开放其经济,并且开始对其许多的国营产业实行私有化(尽管经常很慢)。

在这一努力中,高科技产业通过表明在全球市场中竞争利大于弊而功不可抹。也许自发明数字以来,印度第一次有了一个热销产品,而且这一次它可以保留其利润。全球都对印度人才趋之若鹜。

    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.
