腐败与占领

特拉维夫——警方调查、调查2006年黎巴嫩战争期间所犯错误的质询委员会、前总统摩西·卡察夫被控性犯罪所引起的反感、以及腐败指控缠身的现总理埃胡德·奥尔默特宣布将于9月辞职:所有这些事件无不表明以色列的道德肌体已经受到了严重的侵害。

今天的腐败和飞速增长的调查事件惊呆了像我这样年纪比较大的以色列人。以色列是否一直就存在腐败,只不过直到今天才被发现?是否因为今天我们的检察官和警察装备更精良、办案更大胆,才使这些丑恶现象浮出水面?

我不相信只是因为执法改善、或者是以指控卡察夫总统性骚扰犯罪的总统府工作人员为代表的公民变得更加勇敢,才致使腐败问题浮出水面。摆在我们面前的是更深重的罪恶,这种罪恶以前从未出现过,那就是以色列社会及政府丧失了价值观。

  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.
