亚洲的东盟之心

发自雅加达——东南亚联盟如今正迎来一个决定性的时刻。一直以来,全世界都在评估东盟各成员国作为一个整体性投资、商品和服务市场的潜力和可行性。 而与此同时,东盟各国也正在努力构建一个不受外部干涉的联盟,并以此形成一个基于共同安全和共同繁荣的新秩序。

我们不能低估了区域经济整合对全球稳定和安全的重要性。中国、日本,印度和东盟的年度GDP总和已经达到了14.45万亿美元,与美国的14.62万亿美元旗鼓相当。更重要的是,东亚经济体的经济年平均增长率预计会达到5.1%,而美国只有3.2%。

    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.
