埃尔多安是和平缔造者吗?

伊斯坦布尔 —— 土耳其总理雷杰普·塔伊普·埃尔多安已经开始了一项艰巨的挑战。在三月底参加了韩国核安全首脑会议后,他便前往德黑兰,敦促伊朗领导人在与联合国安理会五大常任理事国(英国、中国、法国、俄罗斯和美国)及德国进行的下一轮核谈判中达成协议。四月中旬,埃尔多安将在伊斯坦布尔主持这些会谈。

埃尔多安上次前往德黑兰是在2010年5月,目的是与伊朗最终达成某项协议,该协议规定伊朗向土耳其提供大量低浓缩铀,而土耳其为伊朗研究核反应堆提供核燃料。该协议是在土耳其和巴西的调解下达成的,作为一项突破性的信心建设倡议呈现在世界面前。

但美国及其盟国很快就拒绝了这项协议,因为它们认为伊朗是在采取伎俩减弱国际社会对其实施额外制裁的增长势头。土耳其坚持推行该项协议,结果造成本国与美国关系紧张,引发国内外人士的指责——埃尔多安政府正在脱离与西方国家结成的长期联盟。

    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.
