美中关系新蓝图

纽约—在未来几十年中,美国和中国如何应对两国相对实力的不断变化将是影响全球和平、繁荣和治理的最重要的因素。从长期看,目前的其他紧迫挑战——包括俄罗斯与西方的关系以及动荡的中东的各种事件——相比之下只能等而下之。

让中美关系变得危险的是两国的强大力量似乎决定要来一个碰撞。中国在习近平的强势领导下,政府不再遵循邓小平在国际事务上“韬光养晦,等待时机,永远不要当头”的遗训。中国开始公然追求扩张主义领土主张,特别是在南海,并明确表现出反对美国在该地区无限期主导的决心。中国人普遍认为,美国想要孤立、遏制和破坏中国。

令人不快的是,美国方面的诸多证据催生了这一情绪。不管美国决策者私下里怎么说,他们在公开场合几乎无一例外地表示要永远保持美国的世界主宰力——特别是在亚洲。

  3. Murdoch's Last Stand?

    Rupert Murdoch’s sale of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney for $66 billion may mark the end of the media mogul’s career, which will long be remembered for its corrosive effect on democratic discourse on both sides of the Atlantic. 

    From enabling the rise of Donald Trump to hacking the telephone of a murdered British schoolgirl, Murdoch’s media empire has staked its success on stoking populist rage.

    The Dangerous Delusion of Price Stability

    Since the hyperinflation of the 1970s, which central banks were right to combat by whatever means necessary, maintaining positive but low inflation has become a monetary-policy obsession. But, because the world economy has changed dramatically since then, central bankers have started to miss the monetary-policy forest for the trees.

  5. Harvard’s Jeffrey Frankel Measures the GOP’s Tax Plan

    Jeffrey Frankel, a professor at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and a former member of President Bill Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisers, outlines the five criteria he uses to judge the efficacy of tax reform efforts. And in his view, the US Republicans’ most recent offering fails miserably.

But ensuring that those changes are positive – helping to fight tumors and mosquito-borne illnesses, for example – will require scientists to apply the utmost caution.
