足球就是战争

纽约——从荷兰到阿根廷、从喀麦隆到日本,旗帜已经开始飘扬。 战鼓很快就将擂起,号角也将吹响。 各种颜色会铺陈开来,战斗的呐喊将在耳边回响。 又到了这个世界杯即将拉开战幕的特殊时刻 。

1974年世界杯决赛曾小负德国队的已故荷兰足球队教练里纳斯·米歇尔斯绰号“将军”,他曾经说过一句名言,“足球就是战争。” 当荷兰1988年得报一箭之仇,击败德国队成为欧洲杯冠军时,上街跳舞欢庆的荷兰人比1945年真正的战争结束日还要多。

  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.
