英格兰银行的“出局”艺术家

伦敦—在加拿大,如果你说你来自伦敦,本地人会问你是安大略的伦敦还是英格兰的伦敦。这个问题总让我感到相当懊恼,这或许是顽固的帝国主义无知心态吧。

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    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.
