肯尼亚的团结考验

内罗毕—肯尼亚3月份的总统大选火药味十足,结果也争议不休,这让获胜者肯雅塔(Uhuru Kenyatta)面临极大的考验:让这个饱受种族暴力和不信任摧残的国家团结起来。尽管这场选举到目前为止所伴随的暴力没有2007年的上一次选举那么激烈,但反对派候选人奥丁加(Raila Odinga)连续第二次败选再次激起了其支持者的恐慌——他们又一次被人设计而在权力之争中败北。

来自多数民族基库尤族的肯雅塔说,他希望弥合肯尼亚的分歧,这与其前任齐贝吉(Mwai Kibaki)的承诺异曲同工。起点很简单:整治国有部门普遍存在的腐败和裙带关系。

肯雅塔的父亲约莫·肯雅塔五十年前领导肯尼亚赢得了独立。在独立五十年之际,有必要反思肯尼亚所取得的成就和失败,特别是教育领域——该领域是经济机会和公共部门专业化的关键。

    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.
