实现和平

在叛乱规模越来越大、军阀越来越多、海洛因贸易猖獗、人民大失所望的情况下,阿富汗虚弱的国民政府拼命想要维持自身的合法性和民众的支持,阿富汗国内局势摇摇欲坠。从阿富汗到东非一线,战火在伊拉克、黎巴嫩、索马里甚至苏丹的达尔富尔地区肆虐燃烧。

政治家、将军甚至外交家有关军事策略和调动的谈论声不绝于耳,但真正符合这些地区需要的政策却截然不同。只有经济机会才能催生稳定,当越来越多的年轻人能找到工作、养家糊口,而不是靠暴力斗争来改变命运时,才能实现真正的稳定。

我们一再看到无论是阿富汗的北约部队、伊拉克的美国驻军、巴勒斯坦的以色列占领者还是索马里的埃塞俄比亚人,所有这些外国军队能够打胜一场战役,甚至赢得整个战争,但却永远无法实现和平。和平是尊严,是未来的希望。军事占领一点一点地消磨人的尊严、折磨人的贫穷和经济混乱慢慢使希望丧失殆尽。只有撤出外国军队、创造工作机会、建设高效率的农场、企业、发展旅游、医疗和教育,才能最终实现和平。如果没有这些,军事胜利和占领的喜悦很快就会灰飞烟灭。

    China in the Lead?

    For four decades, China has achieved unprecedented economic growth under a centralized, authoritarian political system, far outpacing growth in the Western liberal democracies. So, is Chinese President Xi Jinping right to double down on authoritarianism, and is the “China model” truly a viable rival to Western-style democratic capitalism?

    Whither the Multilateral Trading System?

    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. While parts of the UK are certainly weakening economically, others may finally be overcoming longstanding challenges.

    The UK’s Multilateral Trade Future

    With Brexit looming, the UK has no choice but to redesign its future trading relationships. As a major producer of sophisticated components, its long-term trade strategy should focus on gaining deep and unfettered access to integrated cross-border supply chains – and that means adopting a multilateral approach.
