穆尔西身后的埃及

柏林—埃及是阿拉伯革命的核心,尽管最初的星星之火点燃在突尼斯。但埃及——及其战略位置、稳定的边境线、庞大的人口和古老的历史——几百年来一直是阿拉伯世界的主要力量,其决定阿拉伯历史走向的作用无人能及。这意味着埃及民选总统穆尔西的下台将引起更广泛的反响。

穆尔西的下台典型的披着军事政变的反革命吗?还是政变防止了穆斯林兄弟会的全面掌权,从而避免了埃及经济的崩溃和混乱地走向宗教独裁?

没人可以否认埃及所发生的事件属于军事政变,或者来自前总统穆巴拉克政权的势力重新掌握了权力。但是,与2011年不同的是,当时极少数亲西方自由派和数量庞大的城市中产阶级年轻人群起反对穆巴拉克,而如今同一个群体支持政变,使政变具有了一定程度的(民主的?)合法性。尽管如此,这无法为民选政府被军队推翻洗地。

  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.
