伊朗的求索

当今世界的一大弊端是地缘政治挥之不去的“零和”感。世界期望能有一些不同的东西在后冷战时代推动和平与稳定。然而,自从2001年9月11日的恐怖袭击之后,局面的发展转向了一场“全球的反恐战争”。实际上,它成为了维持冷战思维和支持先发制人的战争和政权变更战略的根本原因,从而进一步加深了不安全、不稳定和国际恐怖主义。

再看看我的国家,伊朗,它在过去的250年里没有侵略过任何一个国家。经过数十载与独裁政权和外国控制的斗争,我们通过建立自己选择的政治制度,在1979年获得了自由和独立。然而美国非但没有基于这个新的现实与伊朗建立友好的关系,反而一直企图重建它对伊朗的控制,甚至在1980年代萨达姆•侯赛因对我国发动的战争中对其提供了大规模的外交、财政和军事支援。

当前关于伊朗和平合法的核计划的争端就是这种政策模式的一部分。它充满了毫无根据的指控、双重标准和道德与法律上的自相矛盾,而这一切都隐藏在所谓核扩散威胁的幌子后面。但伊朗的和平利用核能计划开始于1960年代末期和1970年代。伊朗的能源需求会超过其供给,甚至可能在不久的将来使我们降低甚至丧失石油出口能力。因此,伊朗急需在2020年以前发展2万兆瓦的核电。

    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.
