這是達賴喇嘛被美國華府主張資本主義的智庫邀請去演講的文章。作者正是 “美國企業研究院”(American Enterprise Institute)的院長(Arthur Brooks)本人。我在1987-1995年間任此智庫 “亞洲研究部”的副主任(Associate Director)及專任學者(Resident Scholar)。約在2010年左右，此院長將接任，由前院長(Chris DeMuth)帶來台灣，我們見過面。他曾是大學教授，專門研究慈善事業。 林中斌 2014年5月30日
This interesting piece is about how Dalai Lama got invited to speak at American Enterprise Institute, the bastions of capitalism in the U.S. AEI, where I worked from 1987 to 1995, is a center-right think tank in Washington D.C. I was Resident Scholar and Associate Director of the Asian Studies program. Arthur Brooks, the current President of AEI is the author of this article who was a professor known for his research on philanthropy before coming to AEI. I met him in Taipei around 2010 when the previous president Chris DeMuth introduced us just before Brooks took over.

Shijiazhuang：A Tour of Culture
From May 13 to 16, I made a trip to Shijiazhuang, the provincial capital of Hebei Provincewas. I was invited to deliver a lecture at Hebei Normal University by a 90-year old, legendary patriot poet Professor Xia Chuancai. He was jailed 4 times in life, twice by the Chinese Communists who persecuted him for 23 years, during which time he attempted suicide twice. He has published 40 books, some in the Yanjing collections at Harvard University.

This is a thought-provoking yet mind-boggling report. Humans are training the peace-loving dolphins to engage in war-fighting. We are polluting the nature with not just poisonous chemicals but with poisonous intentions and behaviors.

This is an in-depth yet clear analysis of balanced assessment on the pros and cons of the rising China’s economic projection.

Genius is a proof of God, according to Albert Einstein.
Yehudi Menuhin (1916-1999), was a renowned violinist and a musical genius. When Albert Einstein reportedly heard him play a few days before Menuhin reached his 13th birthday, Einstein reportedly followed him backstage after the concert and told him, “Now I know there is a God in heaven.”
