谁惧怕半岛电视台?

没有人胆敢认为卡塔尔的半岛阿拉伯卫星电视台无关紧要。美国官员谈起半岛时简直可以说热血沸腾。可以肯定的是,在所有阿拉伯人携起手来、摆脱外来势力控制的梦想里,半岛电视台无可否认地站在了阿拉伯人的一边。尽管如此,它的新闻报导依旧真实。

被美国国务卿柯林·鲍威尔称为"可怕"、"偏激"的半岛电视台,实际却是改革变化的关键工具,真正的民主阿拉伯人士和国际社会都期待看到变革的发生。然而,美国却对此怒不可遏,并创立了自己的阿拉伯语卫星频道自由一台。

    The global economy today is dominated by three major players – China, the EU, and the US – with roughly equal trading volumes and limited incentive to fight for the rules-based global trading system. With cooperation unlikely, the world should prepare itself for the erosion of the World Trade Organization.

    The Globalization of Our Discontent

    Globalization, which was supposed to benefit developed and developing countries alike, is now reviled almost everywhere, as the political backlash in Europe and the US has shown. The challenge is to minimize the risk that the backlash will intensify, and that starts by understanding – and avoiding – past mistakes.

    A Better British Story

    Despite all of the doom and gloom over the United Kingdom's impending withdrawal from the European Union, key manufacturing indicators are at their highest levels in four years, and the mood for investment may be improving.
