印度国告急

新德里—— 9月7日,新德里高等法院入口处发生了炸弹爆炸事件,给2011年危机之下画上了一个恐怖的句号。此前,安纳·哈拉雷(Anna Harare)领导了为期数周的反腐败游行,该游行受到了印度崛起的中产阶级的支持,印度政府因此陷入了实质瘫痪。最后政府只能尴尬地屈从于游行者的要求,成立了一个新的反腐权力机构。

对某些人来说,这场让印度首都大部分陷入瘫痪的游行不啻一场节日。其他人则看到了政府不得不让步,因此将这起事件视为伟大革命。实事求是地说,城市“中产印度”中有很大一部分人都曾参与过抵抗日常腐败暴行的行动。但哈拉雷所领导的游行真的能让局面有实质性的改善吗?还是说,这仅仅是媒体的夸大其词?

不管你站在哪一派,结果都不令人乐观:印度社会,印度之国基,正在质疑印度立国的合法性。

  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.
