对战争贩子说不

纽约—维也纳所达成的限制伊朗核活动的协议引起了战争贩子的谩骂。全世界公民都应该支持美国总统奥巴马计胜战争贩子的勇敢行为,认识到签署国不仅仅是美国,而是所有联合国安理会五大常任理事国再加上德国,这会让我们信心大振。

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • 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.
