印度是如何走出危机的

发自新德里——随着世界经济开始复苏,印度人也得以志得意满地回顾自己当时是如何应对这场危机的。虽然全球正遭遇着前所未有的衰退,但印度依然成功保持着世界第二快的增长态势。而当其它国家的GDP在过去两年内出现了至少25%的负增长时,印度反而取得了6%的提升——2009年第4季度更实现了7.9%的飞跃。

而将印度的成就衬托得更为引人注目的,在巴基斯坦恐怖分子于2008年11月对孟买——印度的经济神经中枢和商业首都——的袭击事件。当时正值危机中期,印度的国际形象——正在崛起的经济巨人,全球化时期的成功故事,全球投资者和旅游者的圣地——都因恐怖分子的暴行而蒙上了阴影。

在2008年年末的时候,外国投资者已经从印度股市中抽回了120亿美元,但凭借着遭受困境之后的回复力以及面对暴力挑衅时的克制力,印度成功赢回了投资者的心。在全球危机之中,境外直接投资总额在2008~2009年达到了273亿美元,仅在2009年5月就取得了10亿美元的成绩。

    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.
