失败之国埃及?

开罗—愤愤不平的被推翻总统穆尔西的支持者和欢呼雀跃的促使军队推翻穆尔西的反对者形成了埃及不可调和的两大阵营,双方都反映并恶化着埃及深层次的问题。事实上,如今埃及已成为很大程度上不可治理的国家,只能靠慷慨的外国施舍过活。

穆尔西从来不曾满意过自己脆弱的地位。尽管他是民选总统,却选择了不民主的治国方式。他热衷于更换司法系统和公共检察官,声称他们与他的政府的反对者及其军队支持者(于2011年被打倒)沆瀣一气。穆尔西不能容忍对其所推行的保守主义宪法草案的反对。如此作风表明,他早已忘记了两年半前让温顺的埃及人民走上街头、推翻其前任穆巴拉克的结构性问题。

与穆尔西的治国风格一样为害甚深的是穆斯林兄弟会的孤家寡人思维。几十年的迫害史给穆兄会的领导人灌输了一个观念——全世界勾结起来和他们作对。掌权让他们的偏执狂思维愈演愈烈。

    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.
