奥巴马的俄罗斯障碍

莫斯科—在最近的柏林演讲中,美国总统奥巴马重申了其核裁军承诺,并给出了达到这一目标的步骤建议。但俄罗斯明确表态它在近期不会追求进一步削减核武库。

将近50年前,肯尼迪总统在仍然东西分治的柏林发表了演讲,强调了对手间武器控制的价值。如今,奥巴马宣布美国做好了准备将其核武库削减三分之一。他还建议大幅降低部署在欧洲的战术和武器数量。此外,他呼吁国际社会采取新行动阻止伊朗和朝鲜开发核武器、让全面禁止核试验条约(Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty)和《裂变材料禁产条约》(Fissile Material Cut-Off Treaty)草案生效,以及加强核能的安全性。

三年前,俄罗斯似乎同意奥巴马在超越冷战核姿态问题上达成了一致,两国同意将部署的核武器数量控制在1550,并将此写入了《新战略裁军条约》(New Strategic Arms-Reduction Treaty,新START)中。事实上,俄罗斯将新START视为“金本位”条约,其根本原则是在相当长的时间内渐进地、平衡地裁军;充分但不过度的核实措施;以及承认核攻势和核防御的联系。这应该适用于未来一切武器控制条约。

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls. 
    • But moving beyond Xi's anti-corruption purge to build robust and lasting anti-graft institutions will not be easy, owing to enduring opportunities for bureaucratic capture.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.
