美国有关移民的辩论被引入歧途

美国参议院正在展开一场有关移民问题的辩论,这场辩论将讨论数个建议。这些建议包括一项令人憎恨的法案,即规定沿着美国和墨西哥边境修筑一堵高墙,并且将非法进入美国定为一项重罪。美国众议院已经批准了这一法案。

美国参议院还将考虑一项由参议员肯尼迪和麦肯恩联合提出的法案。这一法案建议加强边境执法,设立可以导向居留权和国籍的临时工作项目以及将美国境内的无证人员合法化。另一个主张是要求任何在美国境内想要获得正常移民资格的人返回祖国并在那里等候。

最后一项建议基本上是夸夸其谈。很难想象任何一个已经在美国的墨西哥人主动返回到比如卡萨特卡斯的地方耐心排队等候新的签证。几乎在五年前,当布什总统在瓜纳华托拜访福克斯总统的时候承诺与墨西哥签订一项移民协议以来,他一直就躲避这个问题。

    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.
