接触伊朗的风险

柏林——2月18日,联合国安理会五大常任理事国加德国(P5+1)与伊朗间就伊朗核计划的关键谈判在维也纳开始。谈判的替代方案是任由伊朗核问题继续发酵,进一步加码国际制裁并最终引发又一场中东战争。没有人认为这种方法能够解决问题。那么,究竟能否签署一项尊重伊朗民用核能权、同时又能缓解国际社会对核能武器化担忧的全面协议?

去年十一月在日内瓦达成临时协议,这表明西方在事实上承认了伊朗在核不扩散条约(NPT)框架内进行有限度低级铀浓缩的权利。西方解冻了约70亿美元被冻结的伊朗资金,此外还放宽了某些制裁限制(尤其是在原油和汽车零部件领域),而伊朗则同意对其核计划采取准冻结措施。虽然这项进展为最终订立持久协议打下了基础,但将这种可能性变为现实还需要经过艰苦的努力。

首先,双方需要解决相互不信任的问题。西方和以色列并不相信伊朗的核计划仅仅服务于民用目的。否则伊朗怎么会为一项几乎纯粹为军事目的服务的计划投资数十亿美元,其中还包括研制远程运输系统?

    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.
