凯撒的诱惑

布宜诺斯艾利斯——

6月28日,一场军事政变废黜了洪都拉斯总统曼努埃尔·塞拉亚,阻止他通过公投来延长总统任期。同一天,在阿根廷,前总统内斯托•基什内尔在中期选举中失败,很多人认为,此次中期选举是他和他的妻子,现任总统克里斯蒂娜想要谋求2011年连任企图的一次试金石。这两起事件都揭示出拉丁美洲政坛的一个奇特现象:谁都想成为地方的凯撒大帝。

凯撒主义并不是一个新概念。它曾经被扔进历史垃圾堆,如今却又死灰复燃。

    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.
