阿巴斯的恶邻

随着加沙地带滑向内战的边缘,令人不由得同情两年半以前接替去世的阿拉法特执掌巴勒斯坦权力机构的阿巴斯。作为一名学者出身的领导人,阿巴斯竭力以文人作风领导巴勒斯坦民众,恪守民主原则、鄙视暴力。

而他却从未获得机会。他的巴勒斯坦对手,既来自他自己的法塔赫党,也有来自伊斯兰主义的哈马斯,以及以色列人都将他的文人作风视为软弱。

阿巴斯引入的管理风格与阿拉法特截然不同。直到生命的最后一天都身穿军装的阿布•阿马尔(阿拉法特的革命化名)不认为在以色列占领仍然继续的时候自己应该以平民总统的姿态出现。西装革履的阿巴斯将专业的西方式的管理引入自己的总统职位,但却全然不知应该如何应对草根的民兵武装。

    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. 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.
