饥饿海盗

    纽约amp#45;amp#45;索马里的时间已经所剩无几。有三百万人、也就是全国人口的三分之一受到饥饿威胁。他们靠海吃饭生存。他们的食物、药品以及其他援助物资都是通过海运抵达。然而问题就出在这里。

    现代海盗们全副武装,乘坐快艇在索马里海岸线上打劫轮船。今年到目前为止,他们已经袭击了五十多艘船只。他们盗窃货物,绑架船只从私人游艇到油轮不等,每年索取赎金大约一亿美元。

    就在上周,一艘装载包括坦克等重型武器的乌克兰货轮遭到绑架。一艘希腊石化产品集装箱船只以及一艘伊朗油轮被扣留。目前,这些海盗在索马里港口扣留了十几艘轮船。

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.

    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.
