欧元区的备选方案

芝加哥——未来几周,欧元区危机会如何发展?幸运的话,意大利将很快出现一个国民一致拥护的可信政府,西班牙将在11月形成一个握有改革大权的新政府,希腊也会拿出足够的措施安抚市场。但所有这些都不一定靠得住。

那么,人们应该做些什么呢?首先,欧元区银行必须来个资本重组。其次,如果意大利和西班牙在未来一年左右的时间无法从市场中融资,那么必须成立向它们提供足够资金的渠道。第三,必须治理好当前全欧洲最疲软的希腊,防止其他欧元区外围国家受到传染。

所有这些都要求资金——光是银行资本重组一项就要求数千亿欧元(不过,如果欧元区大国主权债务能更健康的话,此项资金需求会有所减少)。

    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.

    The Hungarian government has released the results of its "national consultation" on what it calls the "Soros Plan" to flood the country with Muslim migrants and refugees. 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.
