欧洲的战略集结号

马德里——六月末,希腊疾速滑向内爆,而欧盟则被越来越汹涌的移民内部辩论所吞噬。这听上去或许不像欧洲理事会最终批准起草期待已久的欧盟新“全球外交及安全战略”的最佳时机。但事实却的确如此,理事会6月25-26日会议的决议当中就包含上述批准决定——还有明确的提交日期。上述举措有可能彻底改变欧洲应对当前诸多挑战的解决办法,或许更重要的是,能为欧盟注入其迫切需要的目的性。

欧盟显然需要新的安全战略。2003年出台的现行战略已经严重过时,这一点集中体现在其开篇的序言之中:“欧洲从来没有像现在这样繁荣、安全和自由。”今天显然已经不再如此。

欧洲所处的长期混乱是其越来越复杂的内外部现实相互作用的结果——其中最值得注意的是四大相互关联交错的生存威胁。首先,俄国已重新挑起欧洲本以为早已解决的传统安全威胁。其次,跨国恐怖主义带来了多方面的本质性危险。第三,正在兴起的移民危机就欧洲的价值观和身份提出了质疑。最后,普遍缺乏对未来远见的欧洲计划已经导致了欧洲各国的不满,进而破坏凝聚力并反过来影响了欧盟对所面临考验的解决。

    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.

  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.

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.
