一个新的特朗普?

华盛顿—在华盛顿,人们普遍认为,特朗普总统的任期正在进入一个新阶段。如何定义这个阶段,里面很有文章。

广泛的预期是,史蒂芬·班农(Stephen Bannon,白宫前首席顾问、白人美国民族主义的守护神)的免职将让政府运转得更加平稳,减少(尽管不能消除)内讧,减少泄密数量。自约翰·凯利(John Kelly)接任白宫幕僚长、整顿白宫西翼后,内斗也许变得增加悄无声息了。但只要特朗普还是总统,整齐划一就不可能成为白宫的主旋律。事实上,特朗普仍与回到布莱巴特新闻(Breitbart News)主持大局的班农保持着频繁的联系。

  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.

    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.
