鲁哈尼能带来谈判吗?

纽约—在世界各个大国赴日内瓦与伊朗展开核谈判之际,世界翘首等待着伊朗总统鲁哈尼和美国总统奥巴马在鲁哈尼上个月访问联合国大会后的后续通话。联大上的简短对话——这是1979年以来两国总统的首次对话——让人想起了上一次恢复双边外交关系的努力。那是在12年前,伊朗总统是哈塔米。不论是这一次还是上一次,美国和伊朗都没有握手,这说明了双方的裂痕之深。

12年前,哈塔米和外交部长哈拉齐是“前去购物”而不是出席亚洲协会的一次文化活动,以避免与美国国务卿奥尔布赖特照面甚至握手。今次,尽管伊朗仍避免在联合国与美国总统握手,但鲁哈尼在亚洲协会做了主旨演讲,声称他的政府将追求“温和和常识”的政策,愿意与西方合作解决伊朗核计划问题。

此外,两国外交部长已经握了手。约翰·克里、贾瓦德·扎里夫以及欧盟高级外交官凯瑟琳·阿什顿举行了一次会晤讨论如何组织即将到来的日内瓦核谈判。此外,克里和扎里夫在单独会晤时再次握了手。

    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

    The Hungarian government has released the results of its "national consultation" on what it calls the "Soros Plan" to flood the country with Muslim migrants and refugees. 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.
