Clean Energy Has Won the Economic Race (Jules Kortenhorst, Project-Syndicate)

For decades, spectacularly inaccurate forecasts have underestimated the potential of clean energy, buying time for the fossil-fuel industry. But as two new analyses from authoritative institutions show, renewables have already convinced the market and are now poised for exponential growth.

The G20’s Pandemic Wake-Up Call (Masood Ahmed, Project-Syndicate)

G20 leaders must recognize that pandemics are a national and global security threat, and expend some political capital to shift the international health-security machinery from its current equilibrium. Their forthcoming summit in Rome is the right moment to establish a new vision of global public health.

High Oil Prices Can Help the Environment (Jeffrey Frankel, Project-Syndicate)

As the northern winter draws closer, surging fossil-fuel prices have left many consumers worried. But there may be a silver lining in the form of more aggressive US efforts to tackle climate change – provided the political will for such measures exists.

Russia’s Communist Comeback (Nina L. Khrushcheva, Project-Syndicate)

Russia’s Communist Party performed strongly in last month’s parliamentary and regional elections – and would have performed better, had the vote not been (most likely) rigged. But can the Party unite the Kremlin’s opponents and together stand up to President Vladimir Putin’s United Russia?

Should You Buy a Home in the US? (Robert J. Shiller, Project-Syndicate)

Even at currently elevated US home-price levels, buying still makes sense for those who are set on ownership. But buyers need to be sure that they can accept what could be a rather bumpy and disappointing long-term path for home values.

What the US Recovery Is Missing (Laura Tyson, Lenny Mendonca, Project-Syndicate)

Although the US economy has recovered faster than many others around the world, persistent labor-market problems lurk beneath the surface. The deep class-, race-, and gender-based inequalities laid bare by the pandemic are getting worse, demanding concerted action by policymakers.

ASEAN Countries Must Lead on Biodiversity (Tony La Viña, Project-Syndicate)

Southeast Asia is one of the world’s most biodiverse regions, and it is also highly vulnerable to the effects of climate change. Policymakers in the region must ensure that plans to preserve nature while promoting sustainable economic growth are part of the post-pandemic recovery.

Competition and Coexistence (Carl Bildt, Project-Syndicate)

Just when the world needs to come together to tackle the pandemic and mobilize a response to climate change, geopolitical tensions are rising, threatening the prospects of cooperation. The situation demands a level of global statesmanship that has yet to materialize.

Learning to Manage the China Threat (Shlomo Ben-Ami, Project-Syndicate)

While regime change in China is not impossible, it is not likely, and would almost certainly not lead to Western-style democracy if it occurred. Given this, the US should be seeking to mitigate the security threat China poses through collective security arrangements, not attempting to cause regime change.
