Путаница в руководстве Японии

ОСАКА. Получая каждый год в течение пяти лет подряд нового премьер-министра, Японии только что едва удалось избежать его третьей смены в 2010 году. Премьер-министр Наото Кан был избран председателем Демократической партии Японии (ДПЯ), выдержав состязание с Итиро Одзавой, самой влиятельной фигурой в кулуарах власти. Если бы Кан проиграл Одзаве, он бы проиграл ему также и пост премьер-министра.

Поскольку голоса законодателей ДПЯ разделились почти поровну, победа Кана связана с поддержкой общих и ассоциированных членов партии. Их голоса больше ориентировались на последние опросы общественного мнения, которые показали народную поддержку семь к двум в пользу Кана относительно Одзавы.

Всего три месяца назад Кана избрали в качестве высшего руководителя ДПЯ, чтобы восстановить ее имидж в обществе, который был сильно запятнан политическими и финансовыми скандалами, связанными с его предшественником на посту премьер-министра Юкио Хатоямой, а также отдельным скандалом, связанным с Одзавой. Неудовлетворительные результаты формирования Хатоямой отношений Японии с Соединенными Штатами, что, главным образом, относилось к передислокации военно-морской базы на Окинаве, также подорвали положение ДПЯ.

    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.
