更健康的全球健康日程

伦敦—9月25日,全球领导人将在纽约联合国特别大会上会晤,为新的可持续发展目标(SDG)授权开路。SDG被称为“代际机会”,其潜力不可谓不大。但到目前为止的迹象表明最优健康目标可能会脱轨。

SDG将是千年发展目标(MDG,始于2000年,将于2015年到期)的继任者。MDG在鼓动政治意愿、将金融资源集中于中低收入国家的有限范围的基本需要方面起到了成效。数百万人的生活,特别是撒哈拉以南非洲人民,得到了改善。

SDG框架已经经历了一年的广泛咨询、游说和争论。一些领域的共识正在形成:新目标应该解决未竟的MDG;应该不仅包括贫困,也要包括地球的极限,包括气候变化等;应该不限范围,解决各国(不论贫富)不平等性恶化等挑战。

    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 has released the results of its "national consultation" on what it calls the "Soros Plan" to flood the country with Muslim migrants and refugees.
