Why Tax Cuts for the Rich Solve Nothing

  • 0

America’s plutocrats may disagree about how to rank the country’s major problems, but the solution to them is usually the same: lower taxes and deregulation, to “incentivize” investors and “free up” the economy. While President Donald Trump is counting on this package to make America great again, it won't work, because it never has.

Trump and the Truth About Climate Change

  • 0

When Donald Trump announced that he was withdrawing the US from the Paris climate agreement, he argued that the accord is bad for America and "unfair" to it. In fact, the Paris accord is very good for America, and it is the US that continues to impose an unfair burden on others.

Trump’s Rogue America

  • 0

Donald Trump's withdrawal of the US from the 2015 Paris climate agreement is just the latest instance of the US president’s assault on the global economic architecture that was so painstakingly constructed in the years after World War II’s end. In fact, Trump seems intent on rolling back the Enlightenment itself.

Illiberal Stagnation

  • 0

Vladimir Putin and other post-communist autocrats sell their system of “illiberal democracy” on the basis of pragmatism, not some universal theory of history. But while they have certainly been effective in stirring nationalist sentiment and stifling dissent, they have been less successful at nurturing long-term economic growth.

How to Survive the Trump Era

  • 0

In barely a month, US President Donald Trump has managed to spread chaos and uncertainty – and a degree of fear that would make any terrorist proud – at a dizzying pace. While most elected officials welcome being all things to all people, Trump has left no room for doubt about who he is.

Trumpian Uncertainty

  • 0

As the world’s largest economy leads the way into uncharted political waters in 2017 and beyond, it might be best to set aside the ordinary laws of economics. Which policies Donald Trump will pursue remains unknown, to say nothing of which will succeed or what the consequences will be.

Bad News for America’s Workers

  • 0

There really is no silver lining to the cloud that now hangs over the US and the world. As bad as President-elect Donald Trump's administration will be for America’s economy and workers, its policies on climate change, human rights, the media, and ensuring peace and security are likely to be no less damaging for everyone else.

What America’s Economy Needs from Trump

  • 0

Donald Trump’s astonishing victory in the US presidential election has made one thing abundantly clear: too many Americans – particularly white male Americans – feel left behind. Unfortunately, he is unlikely to pursue the policy agenda his voters need.

How Trump Happened

  • 0

Donald Trump's chances of winning the US presidency may be lower than Hillary Clinton's, but the odds of shooting oneself in Russian roulette are also lower than surviving. The fact that Americans are even willing to play the game should be a wake-up call for political elites.

A Better Economic Plan for Japan

  • 0

Japan has been mired in economic malaise for more than two decades – and it is likely to remain there unless policymakers change course. That means, above all, embracing a large carbon tax and green finance, as well as considering monetizing government debt.

Reform or Divorce in Europe

  • 0

To say that the eurozone has not been performing well since the 2008 crisis would be an understatement. Unless its authorities make seven changes, its members will inevitably conclude that they are trapped in an untenable marriage.
