债务人的逆袭

布鲁塞尔——希腊总理帕潘德里欧声称要对去年10月达成一致的救助计划进行全民公投将对欧洲的治理产生深远影响。此举可能决定欧元的未来。

出于国内外的压力,帕潘德里欧被迫收回了成命,但不论希腊现任政府的命运如何,他所抛出的方案始终有实施的可能。只要希腊人民被迫要求接受一个又一个紧缩计划,他们就会考虑是不是应该对这个问题来个快刀斩乱麻。

在帕潘德里欧抛出这个重磅炸弹前不到一周,欧元区领导人明确地说:“引入‘欧洲学期’(European Semester)从根本上改变了在我们欧洲层面上进行财政和经济政策协调的办法,现在,欧盟层面的合作将先于国家层面的决策发生。”简言之,泛欧元区财政治理的时代已经开始了。

    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.
