德国,欧洲和俄罗斯

欧洲各国紧密相连,不可分割。当一个国家受到威胁或被放逐时,其他国家也无法自由。所有我们所共享的文化,也许不包括上个世纪所共同承受的灾难,都证明了这一点。

所以欧盟的一个首要目标是通过一个经济和政治上相互依赖、生气勃勃的结构来促进稳定和安全。所有的国家在这个结构中都有既得利益。但是,今天在欧盟和俄罗斯之间缺少这样一种结构,这给夹在它们中间的国家造成了伤害。因此德国作为欧盟的下任主席国应该把这作为一个中心议题。

因为原油和天然气的高价所带来的巨额财富,俄罗斯再次对在15年前逃离正在腐蚀的苏联帝国的弱小的国家施展淫威。因为苏联时期所残留下的经济和制度上的联系,俄罗斯在该地区的外部影响力依然非常强大。然而俄罗斯还把它的能源市场触角伸到了它的近邻之外的地方。

    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.
