让伊朗不再冷

马德里—长期以来,伊朗和西方恢复邦交一直是全球政治的“白鲸”。但一个日益明显的趋势是世界或许正处在新纪元的边缘,新纪元的一大特征将是国家间——特别是伊朗和美国间——谨慎但重要的合作。自1979年伊朗伊斯兰革命以来,这样的合作一直无法协调。

这类合作的必要性促使柯尔柏基金会(Körber Foundation)与科学与国际安全研究所(Institute for Science and International Security)联合组织了上个月的贝尔格多夫圆桌会议(Bergedorf Round Table)。我也出席了这次会议。会上,来自欧洲、美国和伊朗的30位政治家、高级官员和专家讨论了这一关系的未来,产生了对未来决策具有指导意义的重要洞见。

在中东各国举步维艰、领土主权难以维系的情况下(特别是伊拉克),此次会议可谓及时雨。为了扭转中东地区滑向混乱的趋势,需要强大的稳定力量为旨在遏制宗派冲突的联合行动打下基础。在这方面,伊朗可以起到关键作用。

  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.

    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.
