乌托邦的复生

德国社民党主席弗郎茨·穆特夫瑞面临本党左翼挑战而辞职,正如今年五月法国欧盟宪法全民公决的决定性结果一样所揭示的意识形态分歧并非仅仅有关欧洲信念,而是有关整个社会经济基础信念。潜伏在针对欧盟以及欧盟成员国政府的“社会福利不足”的评论背后的是对欧盟的印象,即欧盟是一个强使成员国顺从于致命的市场戒律、并剥夺国家领导人实现重要社会目标的能力的陷井。看起来,这一分歧不仅会决定德国的未来的联合政府,而且是真个欧洲的政治未来。

在法国,不仅极左极右势力和传统上民族主义的戴高乐主义派别明显持有这一看法,而且在大多数社会党选民中也是如此。这些选民决定摒弃社会党领导层的亲欧洲立场。

这一重大辩论不会消退。相反,正如德国大选所显示的那样,并在法国总统选举呼之欲出之际,这一辩论愈演愈烈。

    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.
