全球抗议的表达方式

普林斯顿——从智利到德国,西方各国燃起的抗议活动既缺乏思考又缺乏定义,这一点令人感觉十分怪异。有人说这是1968年以后规模最大的全球动员运动,不同国家民众的怒火不约而同地指向类似的问题。但也有人说这里没有什么新鲜东西。

比如,保加利亚政治学家伊万·克拉斯特夫指出我们实际正经历着1968年运动的“逆转”程序。他说“当时欧洲街头的学生宣布他们希望生活在与父辈不同的世界。而现在的学生则走上街道宣布要生活在父辈的世界里。”

到目前为止此次运动既没有名称也没有清晰的解释。但他们对自己的描述和分析家对他们的描述将使运动的方向产生重要的差异。上述自我认识过程也将影响一般民众对上述运动的态度。

    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.

    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.
