不会有英国退出

伦敦—在今年欧盟所面临的多重生存挑战中——包括难民、民粹主义政治、德国要求的紧缩、希腊(也许还有葡萄牙)政府破产等——有一场危机正在走向解决。英国不会表决离开欧盟。

如此自信的预测似乎与民调相悖。民调显示,在6月的全民公决中将有大约50%支持“英国退出”。英国公共观点可能更加偏向于“退出”方向更长一些,欧元怀疑派纷纷对2月19日欧盟峰会所达成的英国“新协议”极尽嘲讽。

尽管如此,也许世界现在应该停止担心了。这个问题的政治面和经济面几乎可以保证英国选民将支持保留欧盟成员资格,尽管民调要等到公决前几周甚至几天才会表现出来。

    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.
