朝鲜局势考验中美关系

马德里——朝鲜一而再、再而三的威胁已经让朝鲜半岛成为全世界最危险的热点之一。但朝鲜局势同样面临着重要机遇:中美两个能永久化解半岛紧张局势的国家可以藉此增强战略互信。如果两国建设性合作实现各方能共同接受的和平,就可以巩固半岛、地区乃至整个世界的安全局势。

退出核不扩散条约十年后,朝鲜显然已经掌握了核武器。朝鲜政权2月举行的2006年以来第三次核试验很可能涉及小型装置,鉴于小型化对弹道导弹运载核武器的重要意义,此次核试让整个局势变得更加扑朔迷离。

2月核试招致了由美中两国起草的又一轮联合国制裁,并由此引发朝鲜的威胁和挑衅进一步升级。一年一度的美韩联合军演进一步恶化了半岛紧张局势,美国能发射核武器的B-52和B-2轰炸机参与​​演习则更是如此。

  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. 

    From enabling the rise of Donald Trump to hacking the telephone of a murdered British schoolgirl, Murdoch’s media empire has staked its success on stoking populist rage.

    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.
