北约全球化

普林斯顿——下周,北约28个成员国将在芝加哥举行年度首脑会议。六十二年前,“北大西洋公约”的签订令美国、加拿大和10个欧洲国家将针对一国的攻击视为针对全体的攻击,六十二年后,北约正逐步转变为二十一世纪的全球安全组织。结果将会带来一个更加安全的世界。

1949年,整个世界迅速分裂为东西两大政治军事集团,与这两大集团并存的还有声势浩大的“不结盟运动”。苏联及其盟国在1955年创建了华沙条约组织,该组织最终与北约形成对峙之势。这两大集团的共同点是小国聚集在超级大国周围。无论在北约还是华约内部,由次要国家组成的小团体都无力完成联盟资产调配。

今天,用北约秘书长拉斯穆森的话说,北约正逐步演变为“安全伙伴关系的网络枢纽和全球安全事务的咨询中心。”北约是一个“联系遍布全球”的机构,拥有40多个合作伙伴国,与其他国际组织的关系也越来越牢固。

  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.

  5. Harvard’s Jeffrey Frankel Measures the GOP’s Tax Plan

    Jeffrey Frankel, a professor at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and a former member of President Bill Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisers, outlines the five criteria he uses to judge the efficacy of tax reform efforts. And in his view, the US Republicans’ most recent offering fails miserably.

But ensuring that those changes are positive – helping to fight tumors and mosquito-borne illnesses, for example – will require scientists to apply the utmost caution.
