两个原子城的故事

广岛/长崎——4月27日,核不扩散条约的190个成员国代表将在纽约召开为期四周的会议审查这项拥有45年历史的协议。与会者理应思考一项重要事实:虽然核不扩散条约要求其成员就核裁军问题进行“真诚的谈判”,但在销毁核武器问题上依然存在大量的法律空白难以消除。核不扩散协议的签字国现在启动裁军谈判正是时候。

今年恰逢广岛和长崎遭受原子弹轰炸70周年,各地民众将有机会向数十万在那些悲惨日子里死伤的民众表达敬意。70年前的8月6日及9日是广岛和长崎遭受轰炸的日子。人们还可以通过支持销毁核武器,确保不再有人遭受他们曾经遭受的苦难来对这些幸存者表达敬意。

我们身为广岛和长崎市的市长,不过是支持这一历史目标的全世界超过160个国家和地区6,600座城市代表中的两人而已。我们所在组织和平市长会议成立于1982年,目的是超越国界的束缚,共同向着销毁核武器的目标努力。我们的事业每年都会吸引更多的市长投身其中,未来我们实现核裁军的决心只会越来越坚定。

    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.
