La evolución política

Todas las personas de cualquier lugar quieren una nueva relación con el poder: más autonomía y más respeto. Constituye un reflejo de nuestra época actual, en la que nuevos conocimientos, ideas y posibilidades han enriquecido nuestras identidades, les han dado más fluidez y las han vuelto menos sujetas al destino. Al mismo tiempo, la sociedad de la información y la mundialización han hecho que el nuestro sea un mundo más inseguro, en el que estamos expuestos a riesgos que la política habitual no ha podido abordar.

Como dirigente de un partido político, la idea fundamental para mí en la actualidad es la de facultar a las personas. Un dirigente de partido tradicional dice a sus seguidores: “Podéis confiar en ”. Creo que el futuro para la política progresista estriba en que los dirigentes confíen en los ciudadanos . Es un nuevo tipo de relación.

En el PASOK, el partido que dirijo, hemos empezado a pensar lo que queremos obtener con la política en sentido práctico y cómo podemos lograrlo de un modo que respete la vida de los ciudadanos. Estamos haciendo cambios en las alturas para abrir nuestro partido a una mayor participación. Tenemos que poner de manifiesto , no ocultar , las diferentes opiniones y concebir nuestros partidos menos como “cuarteles generales de guerra” y más como gabinetes estratégicos o seminarios caracterizados por su respeto de la diversidad.

    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.

    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.
