埃尔多安的自作孽

普林斯顿—土耳其执政党正义和发展党(AKP)与其昔日盟友、自愿流亡的传教士法土拉·葛兰(Fethullah Gülen)领导的“服务”(Hizmet)宗教运动之间的恶斗已开始暴露出大量违反被双方用来巩固权力的法治精神的行动。被广泛视为葛兰同情者的检察部门发动了一场波及面极大的反腐调查,到目前为止已有四名部长被捕,并剑指总理埃尔多安之子。

埃尔多安和他的顾问已开始反击。他们指责葛兰主义者实施“官僚政变”,并参与了一系列肮脏勾当,包括“罗织证据”以密谋推翻埃尔多安政府的罪名栽赃多名将军和“大规模非法监听”。

土耳其对军事政变策划者的里程碑式的审判如今被广泛认为是冤假错案——是基于脆弱甚至完全捏造的证据的政治迫害。这场审判由葛兰主义警察、检察官和媒体炮制。但他们背后是来自埃尔多安政府的重要支持。埃尔多安阵营目前急切地要从这些审判中脱身,把所有责任都推给葛兰主义者不可不谓狡猾。

  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.

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.
