后内贾德时代

华盛顿——伊朗总统马哈茂德·艾哈迈迪内贾德的首选继任者埃斯凡·拉希姆·马沙伊将不会参与6月14日的选举。前总统拉夫桑贾尼也不会参与。同时取消两者的竞选资格是最高领袖阿亚图拉·阿里·侯赛尼·哈梅内伊发出的一个强烈讯息。简言之,哈梅内伊不会容忍自身权力的削弱,并且决意避免与前任总统、特别是艾哈迈迪内贾德之间的矛盾再次产生。

马沙伊和拉夫桑贾尼被取消资格再次揭示了伊朗最高行政领袖兼任总统的政治结构。在哈梅内伊公开支持内贾德2009年充满争议的竞选连任时,没有人能够预料这两大权威将随后陷入史无前例的紧张关系。

但事实证明支持内贾德让哈梅内伊和伊朗伊斯兰共和国付出了沉重的代价。内贾德不仅没有像预想的那样和哈梅内伊联手,反而开始推动民族主义的反教计划,有效地利用哈梅内伊的资源挑战这位最高领袖的权威,同时建立自己的势力范围和经济网络。

    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.
