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。

    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.
