全球化时代的爱国主义

伦敦—政治中的新断层线,用法国极右翼政党国民阵线领导人马琳·勒庞(Marine Le Pen)的话说,在于全球主义者和爱国主义者之间。这一观点和英国的欧元怀疑派和美国的共和党总统候选人唐纳德·特朗普(Donald Trump)类似。但是,这一观点既错误,又危险。

从12月13日的法国第二轮和最后一轮地区选举结果看,至少法国选民也有力地拒绝了这一观点。他们将73%的选票投给了国民阵线的对手,让该党连一场胜利都没有得到。

勒庞指责主流政党结派反对她,称它们的合作是对民主的否定。当然,她这是典型的酸葡萄心理;两轮选举制度的全部意义就在于迫使政党和它们的支持者寻找共识,形成合作。除非国民阵线设法赢得盟友,否则它就无法在选举中取得突破。(对特朗普来说也许也是如此。)

    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’s Failed Campaign of Lies

    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.
