埃及的斗争与超越

伦敦——一系列事件导致埃及军方胁迫穆罕默德·穆尔西总统下台,军方也因此面临要么干预要么混乱这两个非此即彼的选择。1,700万人走上街头与选举相去甚远。但由此却体现出令人肃然起敬的民众力量。

穆尔西领导的穆斯林兄弟会没能完成从反对派到执政党的过渡。当然政府的执政能力有强有弱。但这次的情况却有所不同。埃及的经济正在遭受重挫。常规意义上的法律和秩序几乎已经消失殆尽。服务也无法正常提供。

内阁各部的部长已经竭尽全力。几周前我还见过旅游部长,在我看来他很出色,制定了重振旅游行业的合理计划。但短短几天后他就被迫辞职,因为穆尔西不可思议地任命某个和1997年恐怖袭击有关的人担任重要旅游胜地卢克索省的省长职务,1997年袭击是埃及有史以来最严重的恐怖袭击,卢克索省有60多名游客因此而丧生。

  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.

  5. Harvard’s Jeffrey Frankel Measures the GOP’s Tax Plan

    Jeffrey Frankel, a professor at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and a former member of President Bill Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisers, outlines the five criteria he uses to judge the efficacy of tax reform efforts.

But ensuring that those changes are positive – helping to fight tumors and mosquito-borne illnesses, for example – will require scientists to apply the utmost caution.
