[OP-ED]: The curse of middle-aged capitalism -- for Trump and all of us

 08/21/2017 - 13:57
In 1995, the largest five firms by market “capitalization” (the value of a company’s shares) were old-line businesses: Exxon, AT&T, Coca Cola, General Electric and Merck. By 2015, only Exxon (now Exxon Mobil) remained.

 A persisting puzzle about the U.S. economy is how it can seem both strong and weak. On the one hand, it remains a citadel of innovation, producing new companies like Uber. On the other, the economy is expanding at a snail’s pace of 2 percent annually since 2010. How could both be true? Why isn’t innovation translating into faster growth? The answer -- or part of the answer -- is that American businesses are running on two separate tracks. Call them the “youthful” and “middle-aged” tracks.

[OP-ED]: La maldición del capitalismo de mediana edad—para Trump y para todos nosotros

 08/21/2017 - 13:54
En 1995, las cinco empresas mayores del mercado según “capitalización” eran firmas de la guardia vieja: Exxon, AT&T, Coca Cola, General Electric y Merck. Para 2015, sólo Exxon (ahora Exxon Mobil) sigue ocupando ese lugar. Las otras fueron reemplazadas por Apple, Google, Microsoft y Amazon. (Nota: Jeff Bezos, director ejecutivo de Amazon, es dueño del Washington Post). Aun así, el capitalismo de mediana edad ralantizó la recuperación. 

Una incógnita persistente en la economía norteamericana es cómo puede parecer al mismo tiempo fuerte y débil. Por un lado, sigue siendo un reducto de innovaciones y produce empresas nuevas como Uber. Por el otro, la economía se expande a la lentísima tasa del 2 por ciento anual desde 2010. ¿Cómo pueden ser ambas cosas ciertas? ¿Por qué las innovaciones no se traducen en un crecimiento económico más rápido? La respuesta—o parte de ella—es que las empresas norteamericanas van por dos pistas diferentes. Llamémoslas “juvenil” y “de mediana edad”.

Requiem for 'El Diario'

 04/20/2016 - 09:23
El Diario has had a history of continuously publishing the daily news of the Spanish-speaking community in the capital of the world for the past 103 years.

News of the gradual death of the oldest Spanish-language daily newspaper in the country is something that, sadly, could be the beginning of the end of an era for Hispanic print media in the United States.

Just like it could happen to the rest of the Latino press in the US — which this newspaper has represented for over a 100 years — news of the gradual death of the oldest Spanish-language daily newspaper in the country is something that, sadly, could be the beginning of the end of an era for U.S. Hispanic media.

The question landed with a thud, jarring in its bald bigotry: As President, would you order spying on mosques? The second-tier Republican presidential candidates scrambled to answer. The incident illuminates an under-discussed aspect of presidential debates: The power of debate moderators to set the terms of discussion.
