波拿巴主义的局限

巴黎——四十年后,法国重返北大西洋公约组织军事一体化架构。总统尼古拉·萨科奇大笔一挥就推翻了法国政策的一大支柱——同时也是夏尔·德·戴高乐的一大政治遗产,而戴高乐正是萨科奇所在政治派别的创始者。

这个决定吻合萨科奇自2007年大选以来的统治方式。无论是寻求改革法国的司法系统,重新描画它的行政地图,提议建立新的地中海国家联盟,还是似乎要终止法国模棱两可的对外政策——这一政策和美国既结盟又不结盟,萨科奇的确是野心勃勃。

问题是太多萨科奇的决定已经被证明完全是象征性的,如同运气不佳的地中海联盟;或者构思拙劣,譬如说司法改革——它几乎遭到了整个司法界的反对;或者赤裸裸的自私,就象行政改革,它不过是力图取消那些由反对派社会党控制的部门和地区行政机构而已。

    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.

    The Hungarian Government’s Failed Campaign of Lies

    The Hungarian government has released the results of its "national consultation" on what it calls the "Soros Plan" to flood the country with Muslim migrants and refugees. But no such plan exists, only a taxpayer-funded propaganda campaign to help a corrupt administration deflect attention from its failure to fulfill Hungarians’ aspirations.
