是将圣雄甘地请回来的时候了

纽约——国大党在印度大选中出人意料地获得压倒性胜利,舆论普遍的持欢迎态度。很多人相信,国大党秉承了务实的价值观,采取有利于经济发展和帮助穷人的政策,如果这样走下去,印度就会变成一个伟大的国家。印度的商界金融界人士尤其感到欣慰,他们认为随着经济自由化的不断深入,国大党为他们打开了发财之门。

美国人也有高兴的理由,麻烦不断的印度左派已经被完全清除出了现任政府,议会中的席位也缩减到了可怜的24席。去年,印度共产党试图杯葛国大党提议的美印核协议,结果没能得逞,现在他们又誓言要报复。

由于印度人民普遍希望地区和平和宗教和解,这样一来,代表印度教的人民党的失败也不足为奇了。对国大党来说,来自右派势力的威胁也已解除。人民党把国大党描述成在对待恐怖分子问题上立场上软弱,将穆斯林妖魔化,看来,他们的目的最终也没有达到达成。

  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.
