土耳其错过的机会

埃里温-阿巴·艾班(Abba Eban)曾经说过,巴勒斯坦从来不错过错过机会的机会。可悲的是,在和亚美尼亚的关系中,土耳其似乎也正在陷入这个怪圈。而且,和巴勒斯坦一样,土耳其不采取行动只会引起更大范围的地区动荡。

不久前,在美国总统巴拉克·奥巴马访问土耳其的两个星期之前,人们对土耳其开放其与亚美尼亚的边境普遍持乐观态度。但是,奥巴马来了又走了,土亚边境却仍然关闭着。

  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.
