法国的不和谐四重奏

巴黎—莫扎特的《不和谐四重奏》很有可能是人类有史以来最美妙的室内乐章。莫扎特之所以叫它“不和谐四重奏”,很大程度上是因为第一乐章的不同寻常。而这一标题倒是很好地契合了如今法国政坛的丑陋窗台。

目前,四方主导着法国的政治舞台:两方属于左派,即奥朗德和瓦尔斯;另两方属于右派,即萨科齐和朱佩。与室内音乐的前提条件相反,他们并没有心往一处使,而是或多或少地公开相对,这样的批评算是轻的。

在左派阵营,执政的社会党在3月的市政选举中一败涂地,奥朗德的支持率下降之猛尽显无疑。在即将到来的欧洲议会选举中,社会党面临着同样的重创,因此奥朗德别无选择,只能让他深受民众欢迎的内政部长瓦尔斯入主马提尼翁府(总理办公室)。

    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’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. 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.
