正确地打击恐怖主义

伦敦—上周,我从伦敦前往巴黎。坐火车需要两个半小时。我们是邻居,彼此的历史和人口有着千丝万缕的联系。下周,我十岁的孙女就要和父母亲一起去巴黎吃生日大餐。她爱极了一切她所知道的关于巴黎的东西。因此,和其他伦敦人以及所有自由社会公民一样,她被最近的暴行吓坏了。她说,我宁可发生在这里。

确实如此——比如2005年就曾发生过,马德里和萨姆斯特丹、罗马以及其他欧洲城市也可能再次发生。法国总统奥朗德宣布我们正在与伊斯兰国发生战争,他说的“我们”包括你和我。法国的战争就是英国的战争,也是欧洲的战争。它包括了我们所有人。

全球化不仅意味着你可以在隆冬时节的超市中买到芒果,可以轻松地坐飞机旅行,可以上互联网。恐怖和暴行也在全球化。男性和女性可以在万里之外获得指导、训练和武装,然后被派往我们周边从事杀戮和致残行为。国际恐怖主义需要国际响应。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Rage Against the Elites

    • With the advantage of hindsight, four recent books bring to bear diverse perspectives on the West’s current populist moment. 
    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
