当贪婪代替了满足

纽约——美元急跌,经济爆炸,身份危机正撼动整个世界。那么,美国人在这样一个关键时刻正在烦恼些什么?被称为“八胞胎母亲”的洛杉矶一位年轻妈妈娜德雅·苏尔曼已经生下了7个孩子,又在接受生育治疗后将第8个孩子带回了家。

一般情况下人们都是在纯粹的好奇心驱使下才关注这样的故事。但自从苏尔曼进入媒体的视线,就有数十家媒体开始以一种近乎强迫性的嫌恶和反感报导她的一言一行。就好像被称作“八胞胎母亲”还不够糟糕一样,像雪儿那样的流行明星也公开对她表示谴责;有人创建了专门的博客,对她接受整形手术的细节进行追踪;娱乐网站也派记者追踪她,曝光她令人脸红地在昂贵的化妆品柜台前逗留。

这样的谴责的确有足够的理由:苏尔曼一家靠领取食品券为生,已经在家的孩子们也没有充足的儿童家具,而她自己的父母在接受媒体采访时也批评她所做的选择。她的宣传策划人辞职不干,还称她为“疯子”。

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls. 
    • But moving beyond Xi's anti-corruption purge to build robust and lasting anti-graft institutions will not be easy, owing to enduring opportunities for bureaucratic capture.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.
