开启和平

    埃里温--亚美尼亚总统萨尔基相最近邀请土耳其总统居尔访问埃里温一同观看足球赛,这是具有历史意义的事件。鉴于两国关系长期僵持,这一访问在任何时候都是不同寻常的。但是这是在触目惊心的俄国和格鲁吉亚冲突仅仅一个月以后,因此,这次访问也许会给人们确实的希望,也就是高加索地区动荡不安紧张局势可以得到缓解。

    当然,亚美尼亚和土耳其之间的恩怨由来已久,错综复杂。但是现在两国应该摒弃前嫌,处理共同的安全关切。格鲁吉亚战争带来了新的环境,因此,人们都清楚土耳其急于想要成为高加索地区国家之间真正的桥梁。

    这一期望是土耳其的地理和历史所决定的。土耳其被比喻成为介于现代和传统、世俗和伊斯兰以及民主和专制之间,而且它在地理上也是东西方之间的桥梁。对于高加索地区的人民而言,土耳其标志着我们通向欧洲的道路。土耳其是北约成员国,与三个高加索地区国家接壤,这三个国家都有北约单个伙伴行动计划。土耳其渴望加入欧盟并且将会把欧盟带到我们的三个边境。甚至我们也渴望有朝一日加入欧盟。

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • In the first year of his presidency, Donald Trump has consistently sold out the blue-collar, socially conservative whites who brought him to power, while pursuing policies to enrich his fellow plutocrats. 

    • Sooner or later, Trump's core supporters will wake up to this fact, so it is worth asking how far he might go to keep them on his side.

    The Man Who Didn’t Save the World

    A Saudi prince has been revealed to be the buyer of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," for which he spent $450.3 million. Had he given the money to the poor, as the subject of the painting instructed another rich man, he could have restored eyesight to nine million people, or enabled 13 million families to grow 50% more food.

    Two Myths About Automation

    While many people believe that technological progress and job destruction are accelerating dramatically, there is no evidence of either trend. In reality, total factor productivity, the best summary measure of the pace of technical change, has been stagnating since 2005 in the US and across the advanced-country world.

But no such plan exists, only a taxpayer-funded propaganda campaign to help a corrupt administration deflect attention from its failure to fulfill Hungarians’ aspirations.
