The Year Ahead 2016

印度放眼世界

新德里——与以往相比,借用诗人约翰·多恩的话说,今天“没有哪个国家能够成为自给自足的孤岛。”印度也已认清了这一形势,通过商品和服务贸易,资金、技术及思想流动完全融入了世界经济。当然,印度独特而遍布各地的侨民在强化印度与世界联系中发挥着独特的作用。

印度在当今世界有着独特的地位。虽然包括发达和发展中经济体在内的许多国家都正在经历越来越严重的悲观和经济焦虑,印度却是希望、积极改革和经济活力的指路明灯。

通胀下降、财政纪律坚实、卢比汇率稳定,印度的经济已经企稳。现在已经在主要经济体中数一数二的经济增长有望进一步加速。难怪投资者都涌向印度市场。

    • But if China wants to enjoy the benefits of regional or even global hegemony in the twenty-first century, it will have to prove itself ready to accept the responsibilities of leadership.

    The Fall of the President’s Men

    • There can no longer be any doubt that Donald Trump is the ultimate target of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s sweeping investigation of alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
