奥巴马的印度之路

美国剑桥—执政七个月以来,印度总理莫迪大手笔的外交政策令观察者惊讶。继邀请巴基斯坦和其他邻国领导人参加就职典礼后,他又访问了中国、澳大利亚和美国。最近,他又举行欢迎仪式迎接俄罗斯普京到访新德里,并签署了许多进口俄罗斯核反应堆的贸易协议和订单。莫迪在告诉他的国民,印度很强,并且被全世界所重视。

下个月,美国总统奥巴马将作为印度国庆日莫迪的特殊客人访问新德里——两位领导人三个月前刚刚在华盛顿举行过重要谈话。因此,奥巴马的访问应被视为一个信号,奥巴马对强化美印关系的渴望不逊于莫迪。

  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.
