中东必须在难民问题上起领导作用

费斯—2012年以来,有1,200万多移民和难民抵达欧洲、中东和北非。结果带来了一场不断升级的政治和人道危机——以及关于如何解决这一危机的日益激烈的争论。

在欧洲,这场争论的特点是异议和分歧,英国最近投票脱离欧盟就是明证——这一结果很大程度上是拜英国人过度担心移民所赐。欧盟成员国无法就如何捍卫外部边境形成一致,更不用说如何处置已经到达的难民了,因此,形成有效统一的应对措施难上加难。

中东的难民争论也不遑多让,并且“中气”十足。人口650万的约旦容纳了140万多移民(大部分是叙利亚移民)。黎巴嫩有150万叙利亚移民,相当于全国人口470万的近三分之一。土耳其人口7,500万,现在收容了270万叙利亚难民,其中大约30%生活在22个靠近土叙边境的难民营中。

  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. And in his view, the US Republicans’ most recent offering fails miserably.

But ensuring that those changes are positive – helping to fight tumors and mosquito-borne illnesses, for example – will require scientists to apply the utmost caution.
