演进的埃及“恶魔”

布鲁塞尔——12月15日,埃及宪法草案进入公投阶段。一年前,令所有埃及人激动的是,他们的国家宪法终于可以体现他们的民主愿望和希冀了。然而,他们将要进行投票的这部宪法更有可能将那些愿望化为泡影,同时,也使埃及的民主之路暗淡无光。

整个宪法起草过程很是仓促,这一切都归因于伊斯兰教徒的绝对优势,因为他们人数众多。起草过程没有自由主义者、穆斯林及妇女的参与,但同时他们也联合抵制了这一过程。穆斯林兄弟会及首席主席默罕默德﹒莫尔西则指望着埃及伊斯兰教徒的投票可以使他在“平常的埃及人”中赢得更多的支持。同时,反对派也会对公投结果产生些许影响。

自由正义党,穆斯林兄弟会的一个政治派别,同时也是埃及的执政党。它的一个政治顾问甚至吹嘘道,动员起2000万的支持者对于兄弟会来说不费吹灰之力。在过去的三周里,兄弟会遣散了那些在街头示威的穆巴拉克支持者。

    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.
