Perhaps the most enduring lesson of Luther’s call for a scholarly debate – and his use of technology to deliver his views – is that it failed. Instead of a series of public discussions about the Church’s evolving authority, the Protestant Reformation became a bitter battle played out via mass communication ....

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said the new industrial revolution offers greater promise in fostering inclusive growth. Driven by Internet, digital and intelligent technologies, it has created new supply and demand, greatly expanded development space and brought unprecedented opportunities for equal participation. In a speech delivered at the opening ceremony of the Annual Meeting of the New Champions 2017 in Dalian recently, he said China is ready to work with all countries to achieve inclusive growth in economic globalization, but promoting inclusive growth requires the hard work of countries themselves.
