东欧的耻之危机

柏林—成千上万难民正在涌入欧洲逃避战争恐怖,许多人在逃难途中丧命,许多新晋欧盟成员国正在上演别样的悲剧。这些国家被一起称为“东欧”,包括我的祖国波兰,它们表现出偏隘、吝啬、排外,忘却了四分之一世纪前给它们带来自由的团结精神。

这些国家在共产主义倒台前后大声要求“回归欧洲”,自豪地宣称它们与欧洲有着共同价值。但它们心中的欧洲是怎样的?1989年以来——特别是2004年它们加入欧盟以后——它们从欧洲结构和凝聚力基金等大规模金融转移支付中获益良多。如今,它们不愿意拿出一分一厘去解决二战以来欧洲所面临的最大的难民危机。

    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.
