福岛,欧洲核能测试

马德里——从欧洲的角度来看,自从日本福岛第一核电站熔炉事件发生后,对于核能的政治和媒体方面的不理智报道的数量在这一年不断增加,密度越来越大。关于核能在世界范围内的地位问题的评估仍然很有必要,并且很具有挑战性。

欧洲人在核能问题上不应该像教皇教条地发表言论,似乎我们欧洲人的言论在全世界范围内都很重要一样,但是我们现在就在这样做。在安全领域,我们仍然可以倡导制定国际惯例,或者制定制度条框以便可以更好规范各国,使得像核能源一样的全球危机问题上带更加透明化。在这些安全领域,欧洲的确有不可推卸的责任。

推动在更加安全的科学技术方面的安全性,尤其是第四代核反应器技术方面,欧洲同样有相同的责任。破坏一个非常具有价值的工业部门,从这些工业部门中我们仍然有真正的相对优势,我们欧洲人无法承担破坏这个部门所引发的巨大损失。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Rage Against the Elites

    • With the advantage of hindsight, four recent books bring to bear diverse perspectives on the West’s current populist moment. 
    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
