加沙停火之外

取得这样的不稳定状态并不容易。几个月以来,明智而负责的人们劝诫以色列接受位于加沙的哈马斯领导层提出的停火协定,但是以色列政府利用各种借口,坚决地予以拒绝。

以色列官员们声称“停战协定会削弱巴勒斯坦总统阿布·马赞的威望” ,仿佛在东耶路撒冷建立的新以色列定居点以及拒绝拆除以前的非法定居点没有削弱他的威望一样;或者他们辩称“哈马斯并不承认以色列这个国家”,仿佛和阿拉伯国家以及巴勒斯坦解放组织在过去60年里达成的停战协定都是基于他们对以色列的承认,而不是基于一个指导以色列多年的简单道德原则-即为我们和我们的敌人暂停敌对状态-那样。

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • 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.
