In the year 1930, John Maynard Keynes predicted that technology would have advanced sufficiently by century’s end that countries like Great Britain or the United States would achieve a 15-hour work week. There’s every reason to believe he was right. In technological terms, we are quite capable of this. And yet it didn’t happen. Instead, technology has been marshaled, if anything, to figure out ways to make us all work more. In order to achieve this, jobs have had to be created that are, effectively, pointless. Huge swathes of people, in Europe and North America in particular, spend their entire working lives performing tasks they secretly believe do not really need to be performed. The moral and spiritual damage that comes from this situation is profound. It is a scar across our collective soul. Yet virtually no one talks about it.

Wer als Journalist vor dubiosen Anbietern warnen möchte, muss Namen nennen. Die Kanzlei Höcker Rechts­anwälte aus Köln will das verbieten. Sie versucht Journalisten einzuschüchtern, indem sie bereits vor einer Veröffent­lichung mit recht­lichen Schritten gegen die Bericht­erstattung droht. Das ist ein Angriff auf die Pressefreiheit.

If the future of Western liberalism rests on Ms. Merkel’s shoulders, then it really is in trouble.

Germany’s economy is built on Germans saving more than they consume. This creates powerful deflationary dynamics for the entire currency bloc. Germany has refused to accept slightly higher domestic inflation as a condition for letting the rest of the eurozone grow. Even now, German representatives on the European Central Bank’s governing board are demanding higher interest rates to placate irate German savers who are seeing no return on their money.

The most common version of the song begins:

Have yourself a merry little Christmas

Let your heart be light

Next year all our troubles will be out of sight

Instead, Ms. Russell sang:

Have yourself a merry little Christmas

It may be your last

Next year we may all be living in the past

That’s not just melancholy or bittersweet; that’s bleak, more “A Raymond Carver Christmas” than “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”
