布什政府将要结束时的加沙地带

巴黎-在访问中东的过程中,国防部长罗伯特·盖茨曾警告说,美国的敌人不应利用美国出现的权力真空来试图改变现状或是破坏美国新任总统的目标。但是,这方面的巨大挑战真的来了,并极具讽刺意味的是,它来自于美国在该地区的主要盟友-以色列。

    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.
