新的欧盟执委会已经任命,它的主要目标是什么呢?

设立执委会的原意是组建一个不受国家或国际控制的纯技术性机构,就执委会的管辖内容来讲,这一点非常重要。遵循这项原则时,执委会就能发挥最出色的作用。想想它在竞争策略领域取得的可喜成绩:打破了企业联合、制止了国家补助,即便它们披着企业债务政府担保的欺骗性外衣也无处容身。

如果说教训,就是委员们要关注自身的特别任务,维护整个欧盟而不是各自原属国的利益。成功的反垄断专员马里奥·蒙蒂碰巧是意大利人,但从没有人敢指责他推行"意大利日程"。实际上,他反对国家补助的立场与意大利的惯常做法产生了激烈的冲突。

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • 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 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.
