发展金融的新战场

比勒陀利亚—新兴国家公私合作支持基础设施开发的风潮正在走向世界。二十国集团支持公私合作提振全球增长和就业创造。金砖经济体(巴西、俄罗斯、印度、中国和南非)将公私合作视为迅速廉价地建设关键基础设施的方法。联合国希望基础设施公私合作能成为实现其2015年后全球发展日程的途径。公私合作的新诉求不仅可能重写发展经济学,还可能重塑整个富国与穷国的关系——尽管未必朝积极的方向发展。

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    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.
