斯大林像?

普林斯顿—希特勒和斯大林都是犯下大屠杀罪行的残忍独裁者。但是,你无法想象在柏林或德国其他任何地方看到希特勒像,但斯大林像在格鲁吉亚(他的故乡)得到了重建,莫斯科也竖立着一座斯大林像(作为诸位苏联领导人纪念雕像的一部分)。

对这两人的态度的不同并不局限于他们曾经统治过的国家。在美国,弗吉尼亚州国家D日纪念仪式上也出现了斯大林半身像在纽约,我最近在一家以苏联时代为卖点的俄罗斯餐馆吃饭,侍者身穿苏联制服,还挂着以斯大林为核心的苏联领导人集体画。纽约还有克格勃吧。就我所知,纽约没有纳粹主题餐馆,也没有盖世太保和党卫军吧。

    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.
