无国界疾病

达沃斯—当今世界风险似乎比以往任何时候都要大。气候变化的影响日益明显,地缘政治紧张局势日益升级,国家危机和崩溃频发,经济机会不充分也不平等,还有传染病的肆意蔓延——而这只是其中一些最严重的威胁——它们给我们带来了极大的不确定环境。2015年,这些风险会有所消停吗?世界领导人的会晤能带来遏制它们的真正战略吗?

本周,我和全球商业、政府、政治、艺术和学术界领袖一道参加瑞士达沃斯世界经济论坛,讨论世界所面临的风险。当然,确定哪些挑战应该得到最多关注并非易事。

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    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.

    Two Myths About Automation
