街道上的左翼势力

巴黎——可能有很多原因导致骚乱肆虐希腊,但一个很少被人提到的原因是希腊的左翼党派分裂成了由乔治·帕潘德里欧领导的传统社会党泛希腊社会主义运动,以及一个更极端化的党派,这个党派从根本上拒绝与欧盟或现代经济学有任何形式的融合。在不同程度上,这种分裂导致了整个欧洲的社会党陷入瘫痪状态。

传统左翼党派在今天经济危机的大背景下反应如此迟钝再奇怪不过。欧洲社会党不仅没能借助对资本主义新的疑虑发展壮大,反而连一场像样的政治攻势都未能发起。在他们掌权的国家,比如西班牙,他们目前的支持率非常低。

在他们处于反对派位置的国家,比如法国和意大利,他们的内部也一片混乱——虽然进入了执政的大联合政府,但德国社会民主党的情况也相差不多。就连瑞典已经丧失了权力的社会党也未能以这次危机为契机发展壮大,瑞典社会党一个世纪以来一直在这个国家占统治地位。英国或许倒是个例外,尽管由托尼·布莱尔打造的亲市场的工党也许算不上纯粹的左翼党派了。

    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.
