叙利亚时间紧迫

马德里——成千上万涌入欧洲寻求庇护的男男女女令欧盟面临着严峻的现实。首先,很多欧盟成员国并未全部履行其相互义务和国际法义务。其次,欧盟在叙利亚内战问题上的立场不可持续。再说得明确一点:未能开展叙利亚和平工作的错误和赶走试图逃离迫害的难民一样严重。

欧洲庇护法的缺陷及其成员国之间的分歧已经持续了一段时间。但今年头八个月350,000名跨越欧洲边境的难民和在逃亡欧洲途中超过2,600人被淹死让我们睁开了双眼。这些难民所面临的惨无人道的境况不可接受。

    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.
