留心东亚历史细节

首尔—中国、韩国和日本外交官最近纷纷走上联合国大会的讲台,申述各自国家在东亚海域诸小道的领土主张。但他们陈述的方式掩盖了各自国家在这些岛屿问题上由来已久的怨气,在过去几个月中,这种怨气几乎喷发。

中国和日本的争论中心是钓鱼岛列岛,日本称之为尖阁列岛。9月,日本政府宣布从日本私人所有者手中收购钓鱼岛列岛的三个岛屿,这在中国掀起了反日示威潮。不久,数百艘中国渔船驶近钓鱼岛宣示中国主权。最近,越来越多的中国海事巡逻船只也加入了这些渔船的行列,定期在钓鱼岛附近水域巡航,有时与日本巡逻舰只发生冲突。

事态有继续升级之势,故中日双方需要快速消弭冲突,重塑现状。事实上,在目前中国正在经历政治过渡的情况下,如此形势显得愈加动荡了。

  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.

    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.
