结束静悄悄的俄欧战争

    俄国和欧盟政府近来鲜有互信。欧洲政坛人物怀疑俄国最近的议会和总体选举结果。2006年,批评俄国政府的利特维年科在伦敦据控被俄国特工谋杀。从此,英国和俄国之间的外交关系处于低潮。

    如此的不信任对俄欧间的投资构成明显威胁。2007年一月到八月,俄国与欧盟间贸易达到1733亿美元,相当于其外贸总额的51.6%。俄国一半以上的货物销往欧洲。其三大贸易伙伴中有两个是欧洲国家,即德国和荷兰,其贸易额分别为319亿美元和283亿美元。

    同样,欧洲国家占外国在俄直接投资的75%。英国名列第一,尽管发生了利特维年科事件和双方相互驱逐外交官,但是2007年上半年投资额还是达到150亿美元。

    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.

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.
