Un nuevo orden de seguridad nuclear posteuro-atlántico

WASHINGTON, DC – A medida que se aproxima el 2011, la región euroatlántica se convierte en un ejemplo de contrastes estratégicos. En los últimos veinte años, no ha habido un espacio geopolítico que haya experimentado una transformación tan profunda como la del Atlántico y los Urales. En nuestros tiempos, hemos visto un cambio positivo de los peores días de la Guerra Fría, cuando una guerra convencional y nuclear de características devastadoras era una posibilidad real en Europa, a una nueva era en la que ningún Estado se enfrenta a este tipo de amenaza existencial.

Sin embargo, a pesar de estos eventos positivos, cada una de las dos potencias más grandes de la región –los Estados Unidos y Rusia- aún posee miles de armas nucleares, que representan más del 90% del inventario nuclear mundial. Muchas de estas armas siguen estando desplegadas o diseñadas para ser utilizadas en la región euroatlántica.

La reducción y eliminación de esta infraestructura nuclear de los tiempos de la Guerra Fría es uno de los asuntos más importantes que quedan sin resolver de esa era pasada. La existencia continua de grandes fuerzas nucleares estratégicas que están desplegadas en alerta máxima y de armas nucleares tácticas que están desplegadas en ciertos países de la OTAN y en Rusia crea un riesgo de uso accidental, equivocado o no autorizado y de adquisición de estos activos por parte de los grupos terroristas. Por consiguiente, la vigilancia de la seguridad es esencial.

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • In the first year of his presidency, Donald Trump has consistently sold out the blue-collar, socially conservative whites who brought him to power, while pursuing policies to enrich his fellow plutocrats. 

    • Sooner or later, Trump's core supporters will wake up to this fact, so it is worth asking how far he might go to keep them on his side.

    The Man Who Didn’t Save the World

    A Saudi prince has been revealed to be the buyer of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," for which he spent $450.3 million. Had he given the money to the poor, as the subject of the painting instructed another rich man, he could have restored eyesight to nine million people, or enabled 13 million families to grow 50% more food.

    Two Myths About Automation

    While many people believe that technological progress and job destruction are accelerating dramatically, there is no evidence of either trend. In reality, total factor productivity, the best summary measure of the pace of technical change, has been stagnating since 2005 in the US and across the advanced-country world.

    The Hungarian Government’s Failed Campaign of Lies

    The Hungarian government has released the results of its "national consultation" on what it calls the "Soros Plan" to flood the country with Muslim migrants and refugees. But no such plan exists, only a taxpayer-funded propaganda campaign to help a corrupt administration deflect attention from its failure to fulfill Hungarians’ aspirations.
