从现在开始支持紧急情况教育

达沃斯—在理想世界中,只要儿童需要帮助,就能得到帮助。当女孩和男孩因为战争、自然灾难或其他危机而被迫离开家园或教室,全球社会就能在几天之内制定能保证他们临时福祉的计划。这些计划不但将包括救命干预,也将心理支持和学习的避风港,以保护机会和希望。

不幸的是,我们的世界远非理想世界。当儿童需要帮助时,我们几天、几周甚至几个月都没有采取行动。绝望儿童一开始是几百人,后来变成几千人,最后演变为几百万人。希望让位给了无尽的痛苦——不是几个月乃至一年,而是平均长达十年有余。他们被排斥在学校门外,被机会所抛弃,被迫生活在无法忍受的条件下——可能沦为劳工或被迫乞讨,卖走当新娘、遭遇人贩、被黑帮吸收,或被恐怖分子招募。

近几年来在南苏丹、尼日利亚北部和伊拉克所发生过的事情表明,我们急需成立一个新的人道主义基金用于紧急情况下的教育。约旦和黎巴嫩的情况也是如此,这两个国家接收了数十万叙利亚难民儿童,他们返回学校的希望渺茫。利比里亚、几内亚和塞拉利昂的埃博拉危机期间,五百万孩子就读的学校被关门或无法以足够快的速度重新开门,同样表明建立这一人道主义基金的紧迫性。也门和乍得可能成为下一批例子。

    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.
