老大哥谷歌

莫斯科-ampquot;谷歌违背了其'不作恶'的座右铭ampquot; 。如果你用谷歌搜索这句话,你可以找到人们对这一说法的争论(这对谷歌来说是加分的),而我最近也参加了这场辩论。

事实上,我与谷歌的关系是复杂的。我曾多次以各种身份支持过谷歌-无论是作为私人宾客、还是作为谷歌所资助的非政府组织ampquot;停止恶意软件ampquot;公司的顾问团成员、或是作为在其举办的活动上发言的嘉宾。我还是23andMe公司的董事会成员,这个公司是由谷歌的创始人之一Sergey Brin 的妻子和他人共同创立的。

但我也是俄罗斯Yandex的董事会成员,它是世界上为数不多的能在本地市场打败谷歌的公司之一;我还是WPP公司的董事会成员,它是全球性的广告/营销公司,因与谷歌竞争而闻名。最后我想说的是,我质疑任何形式的权威的高度集中。

  3. Murdoch's Last Stand?

    Rupert Murdoch’s sale of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney for $66 billion may mark the end of the media mogul’s career, which will long be remembered for its corrosive effect on democratic discourse on both sides of the Atlantic. 

    From enabling the rise of Donald Trump to hacking the telephone of a murdered British schoolgirl, Murdoch’s media empire has staked its success on stoking populist rage.

    The Dangerous Delusion of Price Stability

    Since the hyperinflation of the 1970s, which central banks were right to combat by whatever means necessary, maintaining positive but low inflation has become a monetary-policy obsession. But, because the world economy has changed dramatically since then, central bankers have started to miss the monetary-policy forest for the trees.

  5. Harvard’s Jeffrey Frankel Measures the GOP’s Tax Plan

    Jeffrey Frankel, a professor at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and a former member of President Bill Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisers, outlines the five criteria he uses to judge the efficacy of tax reform efforts. And in his view, the US Republicans’ most recent offering fails miserably.
