怎样在中东做赢家

利雅得—全世界的分析家在评估2012年的中东局势时都使用地区“赢家”和“输家”标签。哈马斯是赢家。埃及总统穆尔西先赢后输。美国国务卿希拉里·克林顿是赢家。叙利亚是输家。伊拉克是输家。伊朗不输不赢(制裁更严厉了,但距离核武器生产能力也更近一步了)。沙特阿拉伯(更强大了,但无法阻止叙利亚和加沙的杀戮行为)和以色列(避免了大规模流血,但变得更加孤立了)也不输不赢。

但是,列举输赢只是政治书呆子的消遣。在中东流血、敌对的气氛中,做“赢家”始终是镜花水月。中东地区所有的仍旧是一串输家。叙利亚、伊朗和巴勒斯坦的冲突受害者、受害者的亲朋好友、祈祷和平的人,他们都是输家。一个冷酷的事实是,杀戮、一再失去和平机会、糟蹋所有进步尝试,一想起这些,中东就没有赢家。2012年,中东再一次证明,这个地区最擅长犯下最严重的罪恶。

这些重要的折中主义繁荣(或有繁荣潜力的)国家什么时候才能停止贪得无厌的暗斗,开始哺育、保护和维持它们的人民?每个人都有不同的看法,我将提供我自己的2012中东综述,并给出2013年的建议,如果我们想让损失少些的话。

    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.
