谁又来拯救我们?

发自悉尼——33名智利矿工的成功脱险无疑值得全世界为之欢欣鼓舞。这毕竟说明希望这玩意儿还是存在于21世纪的。但除此之外,我们身边已经没有多少能带来希望的事物了。

当今世界,货币战争一触即发,贸易保护主义再度抬头,两者都是拉低就业破坏增长的危险因子。美国衰退后的复苏进程十分疲软,并伴随着大量的失业。而中国这个外汇储备相当于其出口总额的一半的国家则不敢直面自己一直刻意操纵人民币汇率的现实,并继续把自己的贸易顺差建立在他国的痛苦之上。

此外,应对气候变迁的全球共识方案仍遥遥无期。澳大利亚连续数周的降雨更让人们怀疑,所谓的全球变暖,只不过是联合国或那些心怀不轨的科学家,甚至是火星人杜撰出来的大骗局罢了。

    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.

    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.
