失败之国埃及?

开罗—愤愤不平的被推翻总统穆尔西的支持者和欢呼雀跃的促使军队推翻穆尔西的反对者形成了埃及不可调和的两大阵营,双方都反映并恶化着埃及深层次的问题。事实上,如今埃及已成为很大程度上不可治理的国家,只能靠慷慨的外国施舍过活。

穆尔西从来不曾满意过自己脆弱的地位。尽管他是民选总统,却选择了不民主的治国方式。他热衷于更换司法系统和公共检察官,声称他们与他的政府的反对者及其军队支持者(于2011年被打倒)沆瀣一气。穆尔西不能容忍对其所推行的保守主义宪法草案的反对。如此作风表明,他早已忘记了两年半前让温顺的埃及人民走上街头、推翻其前任穆巴拉克的结构性问题。

与穆尔西的治国风格一样为害甚深的是穆斯林兄弟会的孤家寡人思维。几十年的迫害史给穆兄会的领导人灌输了一个观念——全世界勾结起来和他们作对。掌权让他们的偏执狂思维愈演愈烈。

    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.
