中东的闪光点

伊斯坦布尔—我的政治生涯始于1991年——即爆发第一次海湾战争和举行马德里中东和平会议的那一年。当时的领导人十分清楚巴勒斯坦问题域中东其他挑战之间的复杂关系。不幸的是,这些关系现在仍然存在。

自那时以来,我目睹了大量项目、计划和工程试图解决各种中东冲突。不消说,我的祖国土耳其一直站在国际社会确保该地区和平、稳定与合作努力的前沿,而作为议会成员、总理、外交部长以及后来的总统,我也做出过一些贡献。

不幸的是,四分之一世纪以来,尽管投入了巨大的能量和资源,这些努力并没有产生人们渴望的结果。略有一些进步要么受到妨碍,要么力度不够,而数钱无辜人民——既有中东人,也有其他地区的人——沦为暴力、仇恨和复仇的受害者。去年夏天的平民大屠杀(包括许多儿童)、伊斯兰国的暴行、耶路撒冷犹太拉比被杀以及上个月的渥太华恐怖袭击——这些都揭示了一个简单事实:暴力会传染。

  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. And in his view, the US Republicans’ most recent offering fails miserably.

    CRISPR-Cas – a gene-editing technique that is far more precise and efficient than any that has come before it – is poised to change the world. 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.
