让欧洲领导乌克兰

华盛顿—在俄罗斯步步实现其对克里米亚的吞并时,美国必须后退,欧洲必须向前,而国际社会必须保证让俄罗斯为其作为付出经济和政治代价,同时俄罗斯和乌克兰民族主义者不会让双方陷入致命的暴力循环。

要了解原因,回忆一些历史是大有裨益的。在整个二十世纪,美国总是在不时干预拉美颠覆和推翻不为它所喜的政府:古巴、尼加拉瓜、多米尼克、巴拿马、危地马拉、海地、萨尔瓦多、智利、格林纳达莫不如此,以上只是比较著名的例子。冷战期间,各任美国总统前赴后继,热衷于直接或间接出兵确保友好政府在美洲(以及其他地区)胜出。

    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.
