耶路撒冷内外

特拉维夫——以色列总理本雅明·内塔尼亚胡政府的耶路撒冷政策确实考虑欠周。在巴拉克·奥巴马政府中以色列最好的朋友,美国副总统乔·拜登拟定的魅力访问期间公开发布要在东耶路撒冷被占地区新建1600套定居住房就是充分的证明。

尽管内塔尼亚胡也许不是一个伟大的和平缔造者,但奥巴马政府将这次公告指责为破坏与巴勒斯坦即将举行的非正式和谈的故意之举未免又有些出于自身目的而将事件小题大做。

无论内塔尼亚胡在批评者面前多不具有说服力,他对谈判的兴趣却是真实的。但这并不意味着他有能力就核心问题做出决策,而没有相关决策企图达成协议是根本不可能的。内塔尼亚胡的使命除订立和平协议外,主要还包括进行生存演习,但这项意图根本无法实现,因为需要同时满足目的迥然不同的太多参与者。

  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.

    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.
