克里的机智条件

伦敦—在《为什么你打桥牌赢不了》(Why You Lose at Bridge,这是最有趣的关于桥牌的书)中,我舅父西蒙(S. J. Simon)建议选手和他的对家“不要追求最好的可能结果,最好结果的可能”。这一建议适用于长期停滞的以色列-巴勒斯坦和平进程,最近,美国国务卿克里再次重启了这一进程。

联合国在1947年就提出了“最好的可能结果”:巴勒斯坦——当时由英国托管——将分成两个规模大致相当的国家。以色列接受了这一方案,但巴勒斯坦人拒绝了,于是巴勒斯坦国从未建立。在后来的多次战争中,以色列夺走了所有分配给巴勒斯坦的土地——主要是现在布满了几百万巴勒斯坦难民的约旦河西岸和加沙地带。

自1993年签订奥斯陆协定(设想在约旦河西岸和加沙建立巴勒斯坦国)以来,“既成事实”是假定的巴勒斯坦国国土越缩越小。约旦河西岸的一部分要么被以色列彻底吞并,要么被以色列定居点占领。巴勒斯坦权力机构只在25%左右的互不相邻的土地上拥有自治权。

So, is Chinese President Xi Jinping right to double down on authoritarianism, and is the “China model” truly a viable rival to Western-style democratic capitalism?

    Whither the Multilateral Trading System?

    The global economy today is dominated by three major players – China, the EU, and the US – with roughly equal trading volumes and limited incentive to fight for the rules-based global trading system. With cooperation unlikely, the world should prepare itself for the erosion of the World Trade Organization.

    The Globalization of Our Discontent

    Globalization, which was supposed to benefit developed and developing countries alike, is now reviled almost everywhere, as the political backlash in Europe and the US has shown. The challenge is to minimize the risk that the backlash will intensify, and that starts by understanding – and avoiding – past mistakes.

    A Better British Story

    Despite all of the doom and gloom over the United Kingdom's impending withdrawal from the European Union, key manufacturing indicators are at their highest levels in four years, and the mood for investment may be improving.

    The UK’s Multilateral Trade Future

    With Brexit looming, the UK has no choice but to redesign its future trading relationships.
