迈向免疫的世界

阿布扎比/纽约—对一名孩子来说,接种疫苗只要几秒钟(大概还要搭上几滴眼泪)。但这几秒种对于让他获得健康的生命起点、让全球健康和发展目标获得进步来说是至关重要的。

与阿布扎比太子阿勒纳哈扬(Mohamed bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan)一起,我们将论述第一届旨在确保所有儿童都能获得疫苗的全部好处的全球峰会的巨大意义。此次峰会将于本周在阿布扎比举行。

疫苗为人们提供终生保护。它们是改善世界的最廉价的投资。疫苗让我们根除了天花,几乎根除了小儿麻痹症,从麻疹、白喉、破伤风和其他致命致残疾病手中拯救了数百万儿童。由于疫苗的作用,5岁前夭折的儿童数量从1960年的2000万降至2011年的690万,而且这是在地球人口大量增长的条件下实现的。

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    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.
