超越结构改革

香港—2016年上半年中国的经济增长平均为6.7%,这让全球市场舒了一口气。在英国投票退出欧盟的冲击后,中国的GDP数据表明其经济似乎已经摆脱衰退。但这并不意味着中国经济已经安全着陆,确保可持续长期增长所需要的结构再平衡能否成功还远未确定。

    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.
