内塔尼亚胡的垮台?

耶路撒冷——就在内塔尼亚胡总理解雇两名资深内阁部长短短一天后,以色列议会的解散标志着一个出人意料的转机。事实上,当以色列民众提前原计划超过两年于三月再次投票表决时,内塔尼亚胡可能的落选不仅对以色列意义重大,而且影响着整个中东地区。

直到去年夏天,内塔尼亚胡似乎还在政治上无懈可击。其联合政府尽管不乏内部矛盾,但在民众眼中却应该能终其任期。支持反对党领袖工党的伊扎克·赫尔佐克担任总理的以色列人还不到10%。

局势四分五裂始于两名内阁大臣以家庭和政策分歧为由突然辞职。之后是加沙战争久拖不决表明内塔尼亚胡未能兑现“粉碎哈马斯”的承诺、特别是以民族主义宗教犹太家园党领袖纳夫塔利·贝内特为首的数名部长公开质疑其政策损害了内塔尼亚胡的信誉。

    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.
