克林顿经济学 vs 特朗普经济学

斯坦福—距离美国总统选举只有两个月了,希拉里·克林顿在全国和几个重要摇摆州民调中领先唐纳德·特朗普五个点。但大局尚未确定,特别是考虑到特朗普阵营的人事改组和重大政策演讲,更不用说电子邮件丑闻仍在继续困扰克林顿阵营,包括最近曝光的克林顿基金会顶层工作人员与克林顿领导下的国务院官员之间的电子邮件往来。

首先我们来看看政府支出。克林顿支持福利国家支持,如扩大社会安全福利(该项福利已经成为规模超国民债务的资金短缺的负债项)、公立大学免学费和学生贷款债务减负,以及给2010年平价医疗法(即奥巴马医保)新增一项“公共选项”。她还说将把奥巴马总统花费甚巨的绿色能源产业政策扩大一倍,该政策向某些能源资源甚至具体的公司倾斜,而对其他人不利。

    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.
