地方主义的欧洲

柏林—多任务并不是欧洲当前一代领导人的优势所在。他们正确地给予了欧元区危机——欧元区未来最核心的问题——最高的优先级。但所有其他重要问题——其中又以共同外交和安全政策为最——几乎被完全忽视了。而在这一问题上——欧洲的对外关系,对所有欧盟公民的未来来说,这绝对是关键性的问题——重新国家化的阴影再次抬头了。

如今,我们可以勾勒出后美国时代国际秩序的大致轮廓——不仅包括新的结构,也包括其中的风险、威胁和冲突,没有一项容易解决。对欧洲——以及对世界其他地区——来说,金融危机只不过是深远变革的加速器而已。

在东亚,世界最有活力、也是未来全球经济发展的主导地区,主要势力——中国、日本、韩国和中国台湾——关于边界问题、领土主张、声望和未解决历史遗留问题的冲突已呈爆发之势。在此之上还有维持了多年的朝鲜半岛和台湾冲突,随时随地都可能再度爆发。

  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.
