教皇的墨西哥僵局

利马—按计划,教皇方济各将于2月17日在位于美国边境线以南的墨西哥华雷斯城主持弥撒。他肯定会利用这次机会敦促加强对墨西哥穷人和像北移民的墨西哥人的支持。

毕竟,他在9月份的纽约麦迪逊广场花园的旅行布道中也这样做了。他提到美国的1,100万未注册移民,要求他的听众将手伸向“所有因为没有权利居住在那里而……藏匿行踪或沦为二等公民的人。”

但缺少权利这一问题既非美国所独有,也不仅限于缺乏合法授权留在居住国的移民。更大、更严重的问题是折磨着五十亿没有注册产权的人的困难。光是在墨西哥,就有1,000万城市住房、1.37亿英亩土地和六百万企业,它们的所有权得不到有效保护。

  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.
