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。

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • In the first year of his presidency, Donald Trump has consistently sold out the blue-collar, socially conservative whites who brought him to power, while pursuing policies to enrich his fellow plutocrats. 

    • Sooner or later, Trump's core supporters will wake up to this fact, so it is worth asking how far he might go to keep them on his side.

    The Man Who Didn’t Save the World

    A Saudi prince has been revealed to be the buyer of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," for which he spent $450.3 million. Had he given the money to the poor, as the subject of the painting instructed another rich man, he could have restored eyesight to nine million people, or enabled 13 million families to grow 50% more food.

    Two Myths About Automation

    While many people believe that technological progress and job destruction are accelerating dramatically, there is no evidence of either trend. In reality, total factor productivity, the best summary measure of the pace of technical change, has been stagnating since 2005 in the US and across the advanced-country world.

    The Hungarian Government’s Failed Campaign of Lies

But no such plan exists, only a taxpayer-funded propaganda campaign to help a corrupt administration deflect attention from its failure to fulfill Hungarians’ aspirations.
