保证欧洲-大西洋安全

慕尼黑—如今,俄罗斯与西方之间的裂痕看上去比冷战以来的任何时候都要大。但是,尽管双方存在巨大的不同,反仍有不少领域存在共同利益。就像在冷战最激烈的时候一样,美国人、欧洲人和俄罗斯人必须携手避免灾难,包括通过预防恐怖袭击和降低欧洲军事乃至核冲突风险等手段。

1989—1991年间的一系列历史性事件永久地改变了欧洲,此后,我们所有人都从政府内外参与到了欧洲-大西洋安全中。在此期间,欧洲-大西洋地区建立共同安全的努力缺乏紧迫性和创造力。结果,欧洲-大西洋区域仍然极易受到政治、安全和经济危机影响。

在不能形成所有各方都首肯的新方案的情况下,局面可能进一步恶化。恐怖袭击已经席卷莫斯科、别斯兰、安卡拉、伊斯坦布尔、巴黎、尼斯、慕尼黑、布鲁塞尔、伦敦、波士顿、纽约、华盛顿和其他城市——必须为这些袭击负责的组织还将炮制新的袭击。2013年以来,成千上万乌克兰人被杀,如今重燃的战事更是令更多人丧生。无辜的难民正在逃离中东和北非的致命战火。西方-俄罗斯关系陷入了非常危险的紧张局面,一次事故、错误或误算都有可能带来军事升级乃至新的战争。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Rage Against the Elites

    • With the advantage of hindsight, four recent books bring to bear diverse perspectives on the West’s current populist moment. 
    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
