扩大就是团结

如今常听人说欧盟吸收中东欧国家加入的做法如果还没有彻底毁坏欧盟的团结,至少也产生了很大的威胁。随着保加利亚和罗马尼亚入盟日期的临近,与土耳其和克罗地亚的谈判也即将开始,挑战这种说法就显得尤为重要。

多数领域里,欧盟最新成员国的价值观和利益与最早的15个成员国完全相同。当然,东扩的确给欧盟带来了质的变化,也产生了全新的问题和政策顾虑,但中东欧的新成员与这块大陆的经济、社会和文化发展有着割舍不断的联系。40年的苏联统治损坏了我们赖以联系的纽带,但并没有彻底抹杀这些国家的欧洲个性。

我的祖国波兰自始至终就与欧洲国家,特别是法国,有着深厚的文化联系。欧洲音乐、文学和电影的所有重大发展都离不开我们的参与(这一点只要想想安杰伊·瓦依达在统一时代与法国联合摄制的《丹东》等电影就知道了)。

  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.

    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.

And in his view, the US Republicans’ most recent offering fails miserably.
