Um pivô chinês?

NOVA DELI - Será que a China está, sob o governo do seu novo Presidente, Xi Jinping, a garantir o seu próprio pivô diplomático, paralelamente ao “pivô para a Ásia” dos Estados Unidos? As primeiras iniciativas internacionais significativas de Xi - tornando a Rússia na sua primeira visita oficial ao estrangeiro, seguida imediatamente pela sua participação na cimeira dos BRICS em África do Sul - sugerem que a China pode estar a tentar colocar as suas relações com os países emergentes mais poderosos do mundo, no mesmo nível da sua diplomacia com os EUA. Na verdade, esta possibilidade é apoiada pela recente declaração de Xi acerca das relações com a Índia, que ele designou de “uma das mais importantes relações bilaterais” para a China.

O interesse precoce de Xi nas relações entre a China e a Índia não é comum para um líder chinês. Ele enunciou uma plataforma com cinco pontos, um pouco como os “cinco princípios de coexistência pacífica” de Jawaharlal Nehru, implementada no Tratado Panchsheel de 1954 dos dois países.

Segundo a plataforma de Xi, até haver uma solução definitiva nas questões territoriais, os dois países deveriam cooperar para manterem a paz e a tranquilidade e evitarem que disputas fronteiriças afectem o relacionamento em geral. A China e a Índia deveriam manter estreitas comunicações estratégicas, a fim de manterem as relações bilaterais no “caminho certo”.

    The Brexit Surrender

    European Union leaders meeting in Brussels have given the go-ahead to talks with Britain on post-Brexit trade relations.

  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.

    The Holy Grail of Genetic Engineering

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.
