Education. The Transformative Power of Early Education (Project-Syndicate)

MANOS ANTONINIS

Despite the importance of a person’s early years, an estimated two in five children, mostly in low- and lower-middle-income countries, are still completely missing out on pre-primary school. Giving everyone the same educational opportunity from the beginning can play a powerful role in fostering inclusion.

Global Economy. A World of Heat and Headwinds (Project-Syndicate)

MICHAEL SPENCE

The outlook for the global economy has gone from hopeful to bleak in the space of just a few months, owing to the rise of the Delta variant, climate-driven disasters, and previously underappreciated supply-chain disruptions. In fact, it is now hard not to conclude that future growth and development are in peril.

Russia Sanctions. The Case for Stronger Russia Sanctions (Project-Syndicate)

ANDERS ÅSLUND

The claim that Western sanctions against Russia do not work or are unjustified does not hold water. Russia’s economy has been stagnant since Western sanctions were imposed seven years ago, and the Kremlin’s continued hybrid war against the West has made an even tighter sanctions regime an urgent priority.

GLORIA ABRAHAM PERALTA

Today, governments must strive to overcome the pandemic, build more inclusive and sustainable economies, and lay the foundations for a fairer and more resilient future.

Pakistan/Afghanistan/USA – The Real Failure Is Pakistan (Project-Syndicate)

BILL EMMOTT

The blame for the return of the Taliban to power lies largely with Pakistan and America’s inability to bring the country onside. Even if the US had not diverted its attention and resources to the invasion of Iraq in 2003, that failure would have doomed its policy in Afghanistan.

Food Systems – Food Systems on the Edge (Project-Syndicate)

Barbara Unmüßig

Those most affected by the negative consequences of large-scale industrialized food production must play a vital part in discussing how to transform it. The world therefore needs a people’s Food Systems Summit that aims to end hunger and malnutrition, protect ecosystems, and provide small farmers with a decent livelihood.

Balkans – The Dangerous Balkan Standstill (Project-Syndicate)

CARL BILDT

Even after a quarter-century of relative peace, the Balkans have yet to achieve the lasting stability that was hoped for when the region’s wars were brought to an end. And now that the EU integration process has stalled, one cannot rule out a return of violent conflict.

USA – America’s Child-Tax-Credit Bonanza (Project-Syndicate)

In addition to helping millions of American households provide for their children, the monthly Child Tax Credit that went into effect in July represents a massive opportunity for businesses. As every investment banker knows, companies that can boast of reliable “recurring revenue” are worth more than those that cannot.
