亚洲:屈服还是合作?

东京—美国总统获得连任后的第一次出访来到了亚洲,这可以让你肯定,亚洲一定有大事在发生。事实上,奥巴马决定首先访问长期孤立的贫困国家缅甸证实了该国正在发生的深远变化,也证实了美国明白中国正在设法让亚洲屈服于其经济和外交政策利益。

金边东盟和东亚领导人峰会——奥巴马亚洲之行的另一重要一站——证实了这一点。在东盟峰会上,前红色高棉指挥官、三十年来对柬埔寨实施着铁腕统治的首相洪森在闭幕词上说,所有领导人都同意不将南海岛屿主权争端“国际化”。中国总理温家宝对这一显然让中国得偿所愿的决定微笑着点头。在峰会中,温家宝签署了数千万美元的援助柬埔寨新协议。

    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 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.
