当习近平遇见奥巴马

克莱蒙特,加利福尼亚—中国国家主席习近平在西雅图开始了访美之旅。西雅图是许多世界领先的科技公司的总部所在地。许多观察者正在期待他随后与美国总统奥巴马的会面。两人的峰会是否能够扭转2013年习近平上台以来中美关系恶化的趋势?

毫无疑问,全世界最重要的双边关系陷入了深深的麻烦。从美国的角度,中国在南海的“任性”行为、无节制的针对美国目标的网络攻击、保护主义经济政策和逐步升级的对内政治压迫使其无法再相信融入全球的中国将是负责任的合作伙伴。事实上,最近中国的行为直接挑战了美国的核心利益和核心价值。

而中国领导人将美国战略性“重返亚洲”视为欲盖弥彰的加紧对华地缘政治遏制的措施。此外,他们着迷于美国在国际金融和科技方面的主宰地位以及,更重要的,美国坚定的自由民主意识形态(他们视为中共的生存威胁)。

  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.

    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.

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.
