  • Netanyahu’s risky romance with Trump

    22 mai 2018, par Shalom Lipner — Israel
    On Monday, a U.S. secretary of state—the hawkish Mike Pompeo—basically adopted the Israeli prime minister’s stance toward Iran, highlighting its malign influence in the Middle East and ordering up a tall list of demands that the Islamic Republic is certain to reject. This came after President (...)
  • Modernizing infrastructure policies to advance public-private partnerships

    22 mai 2018, par Annibel Rice, Ranjitha Shivaram, Adie Tomer — Infrastructure
    In an era of political tribalism, infrastructure investment is one of the few areas of American public policy that polls well among everyone. Which makes sense; who doesn’t like the idea of filling potholes, new airport terminals, and water systems that don’t burst? The challenge is keeping up (...)
  • Egypt’s population : Boom then bust ?

    22 mai 2018, par Omer Karasapan, Sajjad Shah
    Egypt’s worrying population boom fails to generate the same headline attention as terrorist attacks, the impact of economic reforms on the poor, the country’s hyper-constrained politics, or accusations of human rights violations. Yet, the very real dangers it poses were highlighted when the head (...)
  • Why be a pawn to a state ? Proxy wars from a proxy’s perspective

    22 mai 2018, par Daniel L. Byman
    Just as states exploit proxies for their own ends, so too do proxies exploit states—but the cost for them is often heavy. Proxy forces, like the U.S.-backed Kurdish “People’s Protection Unit” (YPG) in Syria, the Iranian-backed Houthis in Yemen, or Russian-backed forces in Ukraine, seek outside (...)
  • Lack of long-term U.S. energy plan impedes transformative technology

    22 mai 2018, par Lance Collins — Energy Industry
    Tour a few of Cornell Engineering’s laboratories and you’ll see some amazing prototypes with the power to change the energy landscape – devices that can suck carbon out of the air and turn it into electricity, new materials for batteries and solar cells, and plans for a unique geothermal system (...)
  • The Trump administration’s Plan B on Iran is no plan at all

    22 mai 2018, par Suzanne Maloney
    The suspense is over. Two weeks after President Trump ruptured the 2015 nuclear accord with Iran to a chorus of questions about the administration’s “Plan B,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo yesterday outlined a new U.S. strategy for contending with the persistent challenges posed by the Islamic (...)
  • Is cotton the answer to Azerbaijan’s oil price woes ?

    21 mai 2018, par Parviz Ahmadov — Developing Economies
    Azerbaijan was once one of the largest cotton producers in the world, with 300 thousands hectares planted at the country’s peak in 1981. During the Soviet era, the crop generated between between a fifth and a quarter of the country’s income, earning cotton the nickname “white gold.” But by 2005, (...)
  • Point de vue prospectif sur l’Afrique – Entreprenariat africain dans le secteur des technologies : enjeux et opportunités en 2018

    21 mai 2018, par Chika Umeadi — Sub-Saharan Africa
    Les entrepreneurs technologiques en Afrique commencent l’année 2018 dans une position précaire. Heureusement, des améliorations progressives ont été constatées dans un certain nombre de secteurs clés. Ainsi, l’activité dans le secteur du capital-risque s’est accrue et le nombre de transactions a augmenté (...)
  • How to build a stronger middle class : With respect.

    21 mai 2018, par Richard V. Reeves — Income Inequality & Social Mobility
    We worry a lot about the middle class: but who are they? Are you middle class? What does it really mean to be middle class in America today? As a recovering Brit and a new American, this is a question I struggle with. In my old country, it is easy. People with titles, the (...)
  • Why engage in proxy war ? A state’s perspective

    21 mai 2018, par Daniel L. Byman
    A proxy war occurs when a major power instigates or plays a major role in supporting and directing a party to a conflict but does only a small portion of the actual fighting itself. Proxy war stands in contrast not only to a traditional war—when a state shoulders the burden of its own defense (...)
