少无所依

米兰—过去20年中,大约五十万18到39岁的意大利人迁居国外,特别是德国、法国和英国等经济更有活力的欧盟国家。而这只是官方数字;实际数字可能要高得多,可能要多一倍有余。为什么意大利年轻人如此热衷于离开?

并非政治上得不到代表。2013年以来,意大利议会40岁以下代表比例从7%增加到13%。此外,目前意大利政府是发达国家中最年轻的之一(仅次于法国)。41岁的总理伦齐也是意大利历史上最年轻的总理。

尽管如此,意大利年轻人对祖国的状态和它所能提供的经济机会深感失望。事实上,尽管伦齐承诺实施旨在重振意大利经济和制度的改革——他也凭此赢得2014年大选——但此后仍有约90,000四十岁以下意大利人选择离开。

    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.

    The Hungarian government has released the results of its "national consultation" on what it calls the "Soros Plan" to flood the country with Muslim migrants and refugees. 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.
