管理伊斯兰国危机

纽约—有一天,历史学家将会争论如今肆虐中东大部的混乱的根源。他们或多或少会问,这场混乱是该地区众多社会和政治制度共有的深刻缺陷的必然结果吗?它在多大程度上是拜外部国家的选择(或没有选择)的政策所赐?

    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.
