大西洋两岸的增长差距

布鲁塞尔—2008年大爆发的全球金融危机对欧洲和美国的影响是非常相似的——至少在一开始是如此。在大西洋两岸,经济表现在2009年见底,并从2010年开始复苏。

但是,随着金融危机变异为欧元危机,美国和欧元区之间逐渐产生了一条经济鸿沟。在过去三年中(2011—2013年),美国经济大约增长了六个多百分点。即使考虑人口差异的增加(目前可以达到每年大约0.5个百分点的水平),这三年中美国人均经济增长仍能达到大约4.5个百分点以上

个中差异的主要原因是私人消费的不同,美国私人消费在增加,而欧元区在下降,特别是欧元区外围。公共消费的裁抑给美国需求造成的收缩(0.8个百分点)比欧盟(0.1个百分点)更严重。这可能有些令人吃惊,因为布鲁塞尔所施加的紧缩政策一直是人们热议的话题。

    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.
