和平制造者埃及?

特拉维夫—在以色列和加沙哈马斯战斗升级之前,必须进行停火谈判。当然,与前几次停火一样,休战总是暂时的,免不了会受到让以色列和哈马斯武装冲突维持下去的势力的破坏。尽管如此,在叙利亚陷入内战、大中东仍不稳定的情况下,双方都需要停火拯救生命、维持眼下得之不易的地区和平。

这在很大程度上取决于埃及,该国是最佳的协议调停人选。但评估外交努力的前景需要理解当事人的看法和安排。

  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.

    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.
