德国选举在欧洲的后果

伊斯坦布尔——近一个世纪前的1919年,约翰·梅纳德·凯恩斯在一次大战德国战败后对和平的经济后果进行了分析。9月22日德国大选的影响力肯定不会如此之大。但也不会像多数分析人士所说的那样无足轻重。

首先,即便仍由基督教民主联盟(CDU)和自由民主党(FDP)联合组成下届政府,总理默克尔也会因为不必担心直接影响选举结果而敢于做出长远、勇敢的决定。她可以放弃目前的四周战略,开始执行两年或三年计划。

  3. Murdoch's Last Stand?

    Rupert Murdoch’s sale of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney for $66 billion may mark the end of the media mogul’s career, which will long be remembered for its corrosive effect on democratic discourse on both sides of the Atlantic.

    The Dangerous Delusion of Price Stability

    Since the hyperinflation of the 1970s, which central banks were right to combat by whatever means necessary, maintaining positive but low inflation has become a monetary-policy obsession. But, because the world economy has changed dramatically since then, central bankers have started to miss the monetary-policy forest for the trees.
