凯恩斯的胜利回归

纽约—现在我们大家都变成凯恩斯主义者了。即便是美国的右派也加入到了凯恩斯主义的阵营中,他们都充满了无限的热情并且其规模在以前根本是无法想象的。

    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.
