俄罗斯和丝绸之路方针

马德里—乌克兰的瓦解让西方面临三大对外政策挑战:孤立的俄罗斯的危险、中国冷漠之谜以及新思想的普遍缺乏。克服这些挑战需要不同政治制度和国家利益的国家齐心协力加强合作、建立信任。中国国家主席习近平的丝绸之路经济带颇有可借鉴之处。

欧洲和美国对乌克兰危机的反应是失败的,体现在两个方面。首先也是最重要的是反应不力,这不啻于示弱,从而束缚了其扭转俄罗斯吞并克里米亚之势(在策略上,这一事实已经被接受)和遏制其面向东乌克兰的侵略行为的能力。与此同时,定向制裁和外交抵制加剧了俄罗斯的国际孤立,不利于构建功能性关系的长期目标。

坚持原则(包括通过实施严厉制裁)对西方来说十分关键,但务实也同样重要。毕竟,一个弱势、孤立的俄罗斯要比一个强大、融入国际社会的俄罗斯危险得多。此外,不可否认的是,与俄罗斯的关系现在已经破裂,互信程度已降至苏联解体以来的最低点。

    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’s Failed Campaign of Lies

    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.
