The Year Ahead 2016

A Índia está atenta

NOVA DELI – Hoje mais do que nunca, para parafrasear o poeta John Donne, “nenhum país é uma ilha inteiramente isolada”. A Índia também reconheceu isso, ficando totalmente integrada na economia mundial através do comércio de bens e serviços, bem como dos fluxos de capital, tecnologia e ideias. E, claro, a diáspora excecionalmente grande e generalizada da Índia está a desempenhar um papel único no reforço dos seus laços com o mundo.

É um mundo no qual hoje a Índia ocupa uma posição especial. Atendendo a que muitos países - tanto as economias avançadas como as que estão em vias de desenvolvimento - estão a enfrentar um sentimento crescente de ansiedade económica e até mesmo de melancolia, a Índia é um farol de esperança, uma mudança positiva e um dinamismo económico.

A nossa economia estabilizou: a inflação caiu, a taxa de câmbio da rupia é constante e o nosso compromisso com a disciplina financeira é sólida. O crescimento económico, atualmente o mais rápido entre as principais economias, está preparado para acelerar ainda mais. Os investidores, não surpreendentemente, estão a afluir para os nossos mercados.

    Red Scares, Then and Now

    • Russia’s interference in American and European elections constitutes a serious offense. 

    • But by treating Russian President Vladimir Putin and his cronies as an existential threat, Western leaders are playing directly into the Kremlin’s hands, and validating its false narrative about Russia’s place in the world.

    China’s New World Order?

    • Now that Chinese President Xi Jinping has solidified his position as China’s most powerful leader since Mao Zedong, he will be able to pursue his vision of a China-led international order.

    • 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. 

    • But even if Mueller doesn’t catch Donald Trump in a crime, the president will leave much human and political wreckage behind.

    When China Leads

    For the last 40 years, China has implemented a national strategy that, despite its many twists and turns, has produced the economic and political juggernaut we see today. It would be reckless to assume, as many still do in the US, Europe, and elsewhere, that China’s transition to global preeminence will somehow simply implode, under the weight of the political and economic contradictions they believe to be inherent to the Chinese model.
