Strategie Occidentali per l’Era Digitale

MONACO DI BAVIERA – Questo fine settimana, Helmut Schmidt e Henry Kissinger parteciperanno ad un dibattito nell’ambito della Conferenza sulla Sicurezza di Monaco di Baviera (MSC) - proprio come hanno fatto cinquant’anni fa, quando hanno preso parte alla prima “Internationale Wehrkunde-Begegnung” (evento precursore della conferenza di oggi). Nel frattempo, le molte innovazioni realizzate ovunque nel mondo ci hanno dato motivo di gioia -ma anche di riflessione.

Non sono solo le crisi che si estendono dall’Ucraina alla Siria ad impedire che la Conferenza sulla Sicurezza,  la  cinquantesima, diventi un mero esercizio di auto-celebrazione. Il partenariato transatlantico, tradizionalmente l’asse portante della conferenza, ha visto giorni migliori di questi.

Gli Stati Uniti oggi hanno almeno riconosciuto che negli ultimi mesi si è persa gran parte della fiducia, a causa del livello della sorveglianza messa in atto dalla propria Agenzia per la Sicurezza Nazionale (NSA). Il discorso sulla riforma delle attività di raccolta delle informazioni da parte dei servizi di intelligence statunitensi tenuto da parte del Presidente Barack Obama, così come la sua successiva intervista alla televisione tedesca, hanno rappresentato un primo tentativo di riconquistare la fiducia degli alleati. Ma questo tutt’al più può essere il segnale dell’inizio di un intenso dialogo transatlantico sulla questione.

    The Brexit Surrender

    European Union leaders meeting in Brussels have given the go-ahead to talks with Britain on post-Brexit trade relations.

  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.

    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.
