印度的东亚梦

新加坡—8月15日,莫迪首次以印度总理身份发表了独立日演讲。尽管他遵循传统,在德里历史悠久、防卫森严的红堡向全国人民做了这次演讲,但演讲内容仍然打破了常规。莫迪没有用讲稿,脱口讲了一个小时,为印度勾勒了一幅清晰的愿景,包括一个与印度的过去明确决裂的经济模式。

自1991年以来,印度一直在缓慢改变其政策框架,远离其首任总理尼赫鲁所制定的社会主义愿景。但是,出于政治原因,这些变化总是需要通过致歉后补偿的方式实现。事实上,许多尼赫鲁时代的机构仍然存在,甚至日益兴旺。

莫迪赫然宣布将抛弃这些机构中最重要的之一:炙手可热的计划委员会(Planning Commission),该机构一直负责苏联式的“五年计划”,同时也是集中资源配置程序的核心。其继任机构国家发展和改革委员会(National Development and Reform Commission)可能更加接近于智库——提供观点和确保政策一致性,但不再拥有配置权。

    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.
