土耳其、欧洲与中东安全

土耳其的变革已经终结了统治该国长达半个世纪的冷战型的国家机器,并改变了该国内外政策的框架。通过国内的现代化和民主化,土耳其的政治家们对实施成功的区域政策的能力充满了自信。其结果是土耳其的领袖们现在愿意追求积极的中东政策从而将该国与邻国之间的问题最小化。

    • 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.
