La India en la mesa máxima de la ONU

NUEVA DELHI - La diplomacia india comenzó 2011 con las elecciones a la presidencia del Comité de las Naciones Unidas contra el Terrorismo, un cuerpo de cierta importancia para el país (y uno que muchos pensaron que la India no podría presidir, teniendo en cuenta sus fuertes sentimientos sobre el tema ). Viniendo tras el margen récord de victoria de la India en la carrera por un puesto no permanente en el Consejo de Seguridad, esta noticia confirma la posición de la India en el mundo y la contribución que es capaz de hacer en el Consejo. Sin embargo, con tales apoyos las expectativas son altas y el gobierno de la India tendrá que pensar sobre la mejor manera de cumplirlas.

Este es un año poco común en esta alta instancia de la ONU. Varios estados poderosos, cuyo creciente papel global los ha vuelto aspirantes a puestos permanentes en un Consejo de Seguridad reformado, servirán junto a la India. Alemania y Sudáfrica fueron elegidos como miembros no permanentes al mismo tiempo, mientras que Brasil y Nigeria están a la mitad de sus términos de dos años.

Esto también significa que cuatro agrupaciones internacionales estarán representados en el Consejo en 2011: el triunvirato Rusia-India-China, cuyos ministros de relaciones exteriores se reúnen dos veces al año, los BRIC, que suman a Brasil a la lista, la alianza India-Brasil-Sudáfrica de las tres mayores potencias del hemisferio sur, y BASIC, que reunió a Brasil, Sudáfrica, India y China durante las negociaciones del cambio climático en Copenhague el año pasado. India es el único país que pertenece a los cuatro.

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • In the first year of his presidency, Donald Trump has consistently sold out the blue-collar, socially conservative whites who brought him to power, while pursuing policies to enrich his fellow plutocrats. 

    • Sooner or later, Trump's core supporters will wake up to this fact, so it is worth asking how far he might go to keep them on his side.

    The Man Who Didn’t Save the World

    A Saudi prince has been revealed to be the buyer of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," for which he spent $450.3 million. Had he given the money to the poor, as the subject of the painting instructed another rich man, he could have restored eyesight to nine million people, or enabled 13 million families to grow 50% more food.

    Two Myths About Automation

    While many people believe that technological progress and job destruction are accelerating dramatically, there is no evidence of either trend. In reality, total factor productivity, the best summary measure of the pace of technical change, has been stagnating since 2005 in the US and across the advanced-country world.

    The Hungarian Government’s Failed Campaign of Lies

    The Hungarian government has released the results of its "national consultation" on what it calls the "Soros Plan" to flood the country with Muslim migrants and refugees. But no such plan exists, only a taxpayer-funded propaganda campaign to help a corrupt administration deflect attention from its failure to fulfill Hungarians’ aspirations.
