对冲基金霸权

最近全球资本市场的动荡应当让那些说德国领导人输不起的人反思。德国的领导人最近在呼吁全球对冲基金要有更大的透明度。美英政策制定者认为对冲基金和其他像私募股权投资公司等新兴金融实体是当今全球经济的主要创新者。

    • 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.
