布莱尔的巴勒斯坦

    伦敦--英国前首相布莱尔具有许多优秀的品质,包括巨大的魅力。自从被平淡无奇的继任者布朗撵下台以来,他接手的全球性任务令人眼花缭乱,需要其全部技巧方能应付。他在执掌英国朝政后最初的日常工作是通过帮助建立巴勒斯坦国家的管理机构来给中东带来和平。

    从那时以来,布莱尔已经成为多家银行的顾问(这些银行如今需要所有它们可以得到的建议),又在周游各国推销有关全球气候变暖和气候变化的可行政策,建立了一个基金会来帮助弥合不同宗教信仰之间的鸿沟,并且还要在耶鲁大学进行有关宗教问题的讲座。剩下一点时间还要重振英格兰足球队和板球队的雄风。或许他可以利用周末时间干这个。

    但是布莱尔正好对巴勒斯坦和以色列问题发表了一个有用的评论,人们应该认真对待。在这一漫长的流血悲剧历史中,我们已经试图努力通过建立信任的手段,或者在名存实亡的“路线图”计划中通过推动双方共同采取行动来达成和解。某些并非固执的以色列和平推动者的观察家则提出了一个不同的方式。

    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.
