纽约——左翼和右翼党派都说要支持经济发展。那么选民在选择左翼或右翼执政时,是否只是在选择不同的经济管理团队而已?

但愿这个问题是如此的简单!问题的部分原因是纯粹的幸运。低廉的能源价格、快速的创新步伐和以越来越低的售价提供高质量产品的中国推动了20世纪90年代美国经济的发展。所有这些因素共同作用才造就了低通胀和经济的快速发展。

功劳恐怕不应属于克林顿总统和时任美联储主席的阿兰·格林斯潘——但有一点可以肯定,那就是糟糕的政策可以把事情搞乱。恰恰相反,我们今天所面对的困境——能源和食品价格居高不下和金融系统摇摇欲坠——在很大程度上恐怕是糟糕的政策使然。

    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.
