印度已到展翅时

华盛顿—想象你是一位家长,你有很多孩子但资源有限。你最大的孩子已经足够离家生活,但他不想这么做。因此他仍然待在家里,消耗他的手足急需的资源。因为老大不愿意自立而让你的其他孩子受苦是正确的吗?

世界银行及其国际发展援助(IDA)项目受助国之间也存在类似的情况。IDA为穷国政府提供低息长期贷款和援助以支持平等增长。该项目支持着全世界77个最贫穷国家,其中一半是非洲国家。它还为一个已不再应该得到援助的国家提供援助:印度。

截至2014财年年末,印度正式从IDA项目中毕业,因为它已经不符合贫困条件。世界银行为接受援助设定的阈值基于人均国民总收入(GNI)决定。在2016财年,该阈值为1,215美元。自2010年以来,印度人均GNI每年都超过了世界银行的阈值。2014年为1,570美元。

    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.

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.
