欧洲的伊朗使命

马德里—上个月,当全世界的目光都投向克里米亚危机和寻找马航370航班时,伊朗和P5+1(美国、中国、法国、俄罗斯、英国加上德国)之间的谈判在维也纳静悄悄地结束了最新一轮。虽然下周讨论还将继续,但谈判的结果远未可知——并且世界领导人都不得不把注意力集中于此。

欧洲尤其如此,在这个节骨眼上,它对伊朗的统一态度是至关重要的。事实上,正是欧洲制裁的威力让伊朗最终来到谈判桌前,而统一的欧洲外交也将助力“联合行动计划”,为六个月内达成全面长期协议贡献力量。

但如今,在计划进行了一半时,我们却看不见实实在在的进展,上个月的谈判在可接受的伊朗铀浓缩水平和阿拉克(Arak)重水反应堆的未来等关键问题的讨论上没有取得任何成果。成果寥寥与伊朗最近宣布将在7月达成最终协议之间的鲜明反差产生了关于伊朗战略和目标的重要问题——在决定最佳方针时,谈判者必须小心对待这些问题。

    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 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.
