    Gang economics in Hollywood movies reeks of fraudulence

    News, Stephen Carter, Published on 29/09/2015

    » In politics, it's the silly season: sound bites and scandals, gotchas and gaffes. Policy is hardly discussed at any level more complex than name-calling. No better time, then, to take oneself off to the multiplex and seek distraction. I saw both of last weekend's top-grossing films, Black Mass and Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials. The two turn out to have a commonality not entirely unrelated to our political moment: Both leave unclear the economics behind the worlds they're seeking to create for us.

    News, Leonid Bershidsky, Published on 03/07/2018

    » Urban transportation is undergoing a revolution.

    Trump, the un-American strongman

    News, Pankaj Mishra, Published on 29/03/2016

    » US politics today presents, to this foreign observer at least, a very un-American spectacle. A country originally built on immigration is awash with popular hatred against immigrants. A candidate of the right rails against free trade and foreigners, while that of the left proclaims his faith in socialism. Xenophobia is rife. Class war seems perilously close to the surface.
