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。

    The Brexit Surrender

    European Union leaders meeting in Brussels have given the go-ahead to talks with Britain on post-Brexit trade relations.

  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.

  5. Harvard’s Jeffrey Frankel Measures the GOP’s Tax Plan

    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.

    The Holy Grail of Genetic Engineering

    CRISPR-Cas – a gene-editing technique that is far more precise and efficient than any that has come before it – is poised to change the world. 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.
