Beware of the resurgence of populism in the post-pandemic world

民粹主義近年在多國抬頭,與當前全球經濟和政治變局有密不可分的關係,若要分析國際政經發展,必先理解近年民粹主義冒起的原因。 隨着2008-09年全球金融風暴過後,民粹迅速在各地崛起。在美國,繼茶黨運動在2010年興起,特朗普隨後標榜「美國優先」而在2016年當選總統。此外,法國有右翼政黨國民陣線崛起,英國則有獨立黨在不同選舉中取得佳績;就連一向少受民粹運動影響的瑞典和德國,也漸見到民粹黨派興起。至於發展中國家,委內瑞拉總統查韋斯(Hugo Chavez),厄瓜多爾總統科雷拉(Rafael Correa)、玻利維亞總統莫拉萊斯(Evo Morales),均着眼於資源再分配政策;而極右翼民粹主義領袖,則包括巴西總統博爾索納羅(Jair Bolsonaro)和菲律賓總統杜特爾特(Rodrigo Duterte)。2016年英國公投後脫歐,以及2018年展開的中美貿易戰等,都在此形勢下產生,世界經濟與秩序亦相繼出現不穩定性。

Who has the upper hand?
