特朗普的拙劣产业政策

坎布里奇—美国当选总统唐纳德·特朗普尚未履新,但自11月出人意料地赢得大选以来,其漏洞百出的产业政策已经充分展现在人们眼前。

当选后不出几周,特朗普已经宣布了一场胜利。通过威逼利诱,他成功说服空调暖通企业开利公司(Carrier)将一些业务保留在印第安纳州,从而“拯救”了大约1,000个美国工作岗位。随后他以开利工厂为榜样,警告其他美国企业,如果它们把工厂迁往海外而产品返销国内,他将对它们征收高昂关税。

他的Twitter账号也不断地发布同样风格的评论。他将福特公司把林肯汽车工厂留在肯塔基州而不是迁往墨西哥的决定揽为己功。他威胁通用汽车公司,如果继续从墨西哥进口雪佛莱科鲁兹而不是将该车型放在美国生产,他将对其征收关税。

    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.
