伊朗和平问题

纽约—伊朗和联合国安理会五大常任理事国(美国、英国、法国、中国、俄罗斯)加德国之间的核问题框架协议是全球外交的一次重要成就。本月早些时候的协议是理性希望对非理性恐惧的胜利,理应得到实施。但如今需要与美国、伊朗、以色列和其他国家的强硬牌子角力,他们妄图在6月协议最后期限之前扼杀协议。

该框架协议能让所有方都受益。伊朗减少其核活动,特别是铀燃料浓缩活动,以换取取消经济制裁。伊朗政府将更加远离开发核弹——它也一直否认这一点——并赢得经济复苏和与主要大国关系正常化的机会。

这是一个明智、务实且平衡的方针,需要监督和论证。它不要求美国和伊朗政府突然变得互相信任;但它却是提供了构建信心的机会,尽管它允许符合双方各自利益的具体措施。关键是,它是国际法的一部分,处于联合国安理会框架内。

  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.

    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.
