驱除穆沙拉夫的幽灵

剑桥-在最近的自由选举之后,巴基斯坦正处于政治上的恢复过程之中。但是穆沙拉夫时代结束带来的喜悦,因为新政府面对的严峻选择,正在消失。

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • 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.
