女子掌权?

如果美国总统希拉里·克林顿,法国总统塞格琳·罗雅尔以及德国总理默克尔这样一个令人生畏的女性领导铁三角聚首在八国峰会上会是怎样一种景象?这种情况的出现并不是完全不可能的。事实上,在美国和法国,甚至还有另外一些女性的总统候选人,美国有赖斯,法国有阿里奥马里 。这会不会意味着国内政治和国际关系的一种新模式呢?

答案是并不明显。不管怎样,一些女人早就拥有了实力以及问鼎的意志力,比如英迪拉·甘地,梅厄或者撒切尔夫人。这三个人都成了她们国家强有力的总理,尽管这也许不能被看作是女权主义价值的一个缩影。她们在她们各自的竞赛中都战胜了男人,但是却很少有时间去关注所谓的争取女权运动。

毫无疑问,世界上许多地方政治领导的模式正在发生转变。当政府组建时,妇女已经能够打破其传统领域,例如教育和社会事务的束缚。特别是,外交已经成为女性的向往。美国和欧盟都是由妇女来掌管外交;其他众多欧盟国家也是如此,包括英国。这是否改变了外交的风格,还是外交的实质?

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
