关于在俄国言论自由

最近我们得到有关俄罗斯记者波里科夫斯卡娅被害的新闻。我们认为这是在俄罗斯联邦紧张局势的又一个证明。波里科夫斯卡娅是在俄罗斯争取言论自由以及有关车臣战争真相的又一个受害者。她在前往格鲁吉亚的前夜被害。该地区局势紧张﹐格鲁吉亚与俄罗斯联邦的关系令人担忧。

对于有关针对俄罗斯境内的格鲁吉亚人的行动的报道我们感到惊讶和沮丧。这些行为包括国际媒体报道的莫斯科警察要求学校列出具有格鲁吉亚姓氏的小学生的名单﹐作为搜查非法移民以及在俄罗斯的格鲁吉亚企业关闭的可以核查的案件的一部份。我们了解向格鲁吉亚汇款对于贫苦家庭的重要性﹐所以我们对有关阻碍银行汇款措施的报道感到担忧。

我们感到有义务强调﹐政府之间的争议不应当成为针对平民行动的理由。我们希望﹐俄罗斯联邦的领导人重申少数民族的权利﹐不要针对格鲁吉亚人发表含有敌意的言论以及采取任何行动﹐并且确保我们共同的民主价值观和邻国之间值得尊敬的关系得以维护。

    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.
