布莱尔的巴勒斯坦

    伦敦--英国前首相布莱尔具有许多优秀的品质,包括巨大的魅力。自从被平淡无奇的继任者布朗撵下台以来,他接手的全球性任务令人眼花缭乱,需要其全部技巧方能应付。他在执掌英国朝政后最初的日常工作是通过帮助建立巴勒斯坦国家的管理机构来给中东带来和平。

    从那时以来,布莱尔已经成为多家银行的顾问(这些银行如今需要所有它们可以得到的建议),又在周游各国推销有关全球气候变暖和气候变化的可行政策,建立了一个基金会来帮助弥合不同宗教信仰之间的鸿沟,并且还要在耶鲁大学进行有关宗教问题的讲座。剩下一点时间还要重振英格兰足球队和板球队的雄风。或许他可以利用周末时间干这个。

    但是布莱尔正好对巴勒斯坦和以色列问题发表了一个有用的评论,人们应该认真对待。在这一漫长的流血悲剧历史中,我们已经试图努力通过建立信任的手段,或者在名存实亡的“路线图”计划中通过推动双方共同采取行动来达成和解。某些并非固执的以色列和平推动者的观察家则提出了一个不同的方式。

    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.
