全球捡便宜货大行动

发自东京——很少选举能像7月17日的希腊大选一样吸引了全世界的注意力。如今,得票最多的中右翼新民主党已经和中左翼的泛希腊社会主义运动党以及左翼民主党组建了联合政府,而关键问题则在于总理安东尼斯·萨马拉斯的政府是否能履行与其他欧元区伙伴协商达成的紧缩措施,从而继续获得世界货币基金组织和欧盟的支持。

    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.
