中国的朝鲜重点

北京—在经历了一个朝鲜半岛局势紧张的春天后,最近几周的一系列外交活动带来了形成一致的希望,至少在中国、韩国和美国之间是如此。但关于如何将来自朝鲜领导层的变化无常的风险降到最低,目前还有待形成可行的一致意见

据称中国主席习近平和朝鲜副元帅、四人最高统治集团成员之一崔龙海进行了艰难的会谈,随后,加利福尼亚州中美峰会将朝鲜问题作为讨论的核心议题之一。中美峰会后,习近平与韩国总统朴槿惠马上在北京举行了峰会。习近平参与了三次会面这一事实暗示了两大真相:中国对朝政策是形成针对朝鲜造成的问题的解决方案的关键;以及中国或许正在积极寻找对付其不安分的盟友的新方法。

中国对新朝鲜政策的兴趣算不上全新。毕竟,过去二十年来,中国对朝政策一直在逐渐朝更具建设性的方向改变,这反映出中国日渐提高的国际突出地位以及其领导人谨慎行使中国经济实力带来的全球影响力的态度。

    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.

    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.
