两个原子城的故事

广岛/长崎——4月27日,核不扩散条约的190个成员国代表将在纽约召开为期四周的会议审查这项拥有45年历史的协议。与会者理应思考一项重要事实:虽然核不扩散条约要求其成员就核裁军问题进行“真诚的谈判”,但在销毁核武器问题上依然存在大量的法律空白难以消除。核不扩散协议的签字国现在启动裁军谈判正是时候。

今年恰逢广岛和长崎遭受原子弹轰炸70周年,各地民众将有机会向数十万在那些悲惨日子里死伤的民众表达敬意。70年前的8月6日及9日是广岛和长崎遭受轰炸的日子。人们还可以通过支持销毁核武器,确保不再有人遭受他们曾经遭受的苦难来对这些幸存者表达敬意。

我们身为广岛和长崎市的市长,不过是支持这一历史目标的全世界超过160个国家和地区6,600座城市代表中的两人而已。我们所在组织和平市长会议成立于1982年,目的是超越国界的束缚,共同向着销毁核武器的目标努力。我们的事业每年都会吸引更多的市长投身其中,未来我们实现核裁军的决心只会越来越坚定。

    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.
