伊拉克和日本孤立

每一个派兵前往伊拉克以支持美国的国家其实都是迫于压力,这从菲律宾决定从伊拉克撤军上就可见一斑。但对日本来说,是否继续支持伊拉克重建已经不仅仅是这一特殊政策能带来多少好处,而是它关系到日本人的安全理念,以及什么才是日本国的利益。

    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.
