学会和伊朗和解

美国有句明智的谚语,那就是,“如果你在洞中,就不要再挖洞。”六国政府,也就是联合国安理会五个常任理事国和德国目前正在考虑下一步的步骤来防止伊朗发展原子弹。它们应当听听这一谚语,否则,它们在伊朗核问题上将会一无所获,而剩下唯一的一个无用的选择就是军事打击了。

但是六国政府看起来好像决心继续它们目前为止的策略。它们与伊朗谈判的先决条件是其事先暂停核子浓缩项目。只有伊朗永久性地放弃浓缩项目,这六国才会作为交换提供主要的奖励,也就是解除所有的制裁和贸易限制乃至提供安全保证。

这一策略并未奏效,而且也不会奏效。伊朗依旧是核不扩散条约的成员国。根据这一条约,各国有权进行民用核浓缩,而伊朗宣称它所要的就是这些。确实,伊朗完全终止其浓缩项目将会是受人欢迎的,因为伊朗政府在过去二十年中一直向条约检查员们隐瞒这些活动,从而表明它所做的并非纯粹的民用动机。

    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

    • 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.
