女性民主在韩国萌芽

东京—今年,全世界都在选总统,最后一位选出的(12月19日)将是韩国总统。但是,韩国总统选举已经产生了国际影响,这部分是因为,韩国没有批准重要的与日情报共享新条约被广泛看作是竞选政治的结果。但从该地区作为一个整体看,韩国总统选举可能会带来很好的积极影响。

7月10日,当前的领先者、新国家党(Saenuri Party)的朴槿惠首先宣布参选。除了其他反对派候选人外,很多人将目光集中到了首尔大学融合科学与技术研究生院院长安哲秀身上。安哲秀是一位成功的企业家,在韩国年轻人和独立选民中拥有崇高的声望。

但最令人感兴趣的还是朴槿惠。特别是在保守派选民中,人们对其对朝政策抱有极大希望。朝鲜仍是个永远令人捉摸不透的国家,比如,金正恩突然间便将高级军官李英浩解职、给自己加上元帅头衔,又默示自己已经结婚。他的妻子首次露面是陪同他出席迪士尼米老鼠音乐会。到目前为止,朴槿惠还没有透露丝毫针对朝鲜的想法,她认为选民会信任她的外交天赋。

    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

    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.
