欧洲的价值地理

巴黎—面对回归帝国传统和苏联式的欺骗手段和回光返照的俄罗斯,欧洲应该如何应对?欧洲应该以“地理的价值”(the value of geography)还是以“价值的地理”(the geography of values)为重?

选择前者的人打着短期“能源现实主义”的旗号,认为最关键的是要与俄罗斯达成协议,以为内欧洲缺少美国的页岩气和页岩油。根据这一逻辑,没了俄罗斯,美国可以活,欧洲活不了。

    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.

    The Hungarian Government’s Failed Campaign of Lies

    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.
