普京经济学

华盛顿--普京总统把俄国议会选举变成了对自己的全民公决,并且获得大胜。但是,尽管他拒绝明确表明在明年春天他的;第二个任期届满的时候维持权力的安排,他的经济政策却是清晰的。

有关杜马选举最为奇怪的事情就是普京惊惶失措。他在公开亮相的场合过度地暴露了自己,其内容实质含糊不清,而表现却非常好斗。他在竞选中反对西方以及九十年代的“混乱”,正如他在1999年镇压车臣恐怖份子以及2003年平定寡头们一样。

克里姆林宫放弃了民主程序,控制着那些政党可以被允许竞选及其侯选人,而普京的统一俄罗斯垄断了媒体报导。反对派活动份子被阻止进行大部分的竞选活动,他们经常被捕,而克里姆林宫控制的法院不受理他们的抗议申请。大量的选民被恐吓投票支持统一俄罗斯。独立选举监督员则被禁止。

    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.
