Candidates seeking a victory in the May 16, 2017 primary election for District Attorney in Philadelphia have spent months making big promises to initiate reforms and ‘restore integrity’ to that post now polluted by the presence of current DA Seth Williams who is facing a federal trial for a slew of corruption charges.

[OP-ED]: Lección elemental sobre el presupuesto—para Trump y para todos

 05/04/2017 - 10:54
No se puede controlar el presupuesto si no se desea hacer cambios en el Seguro Social, Medicare y otros programas de salud.
Spanish

Durante mucho tiempo—no años, sino décadas—he dicho que estamos convirtiendo lentamente el gobierno federal en una agencia para la asistencia médica y el cuidado de los ancianos.

[OP-ED]: America the complacent

 04/26/2017 - 10:54
In his new book, “The Complacent Class: The Self-Defeating Quest for the American Dream,” Cowen argues that we’ve overcorrected and gone too far toward trying to create perfect, insulated “bubble worlds” for ourselves and our kids. And now we’re afraid to change anything, lest we burst the bubble. 
English

The headline grabbed my attention: “Americans have become lazy and it’s hurting the economy.” 

Lazy? Now there’s a four-letter word you rarely hear Americans use to describe themselves.

[OP-ED]: Estados Unidos demasiado satisfecho de sí mismo

En su nuevo libro, “The Complacent Class: The Self-Defeating Quest for the American Dream”, Cowen sostiene que como consecuencia de una sobre-corrección, hemos ido demasiado lejos e intentado crear “mundos de burbuja”, aislados y perfectos, para nosotros y nuestros hijos.
Spanish

El titular captó mi atención: “Los estadounidenses se han vuelto perezosos, lo que está perjudicando la economía”. 

¿Perezosos? Bueno, ése es un término que los estadounidenses usan muy pocas veces para describirse a sí mismos.

[OP-ED]: Trump’s stock boom -- illusion or reality?

 04/25/2017 - 10:10
Stock valuations are tricky. With hindsight, the market can stay above or below levels reflecting economic fundamentals for long stretches. Whatever the case today, stocks are nowhere near the absurd heights of the “tech bubble” at the turn of the century. EFE
English

The last thing President Trump now needs is for the stock market to go south on him. After all, he’s got worries aplenty: abroad, North Korea, Syria, Russia and Brexit; at home, the stalled effort to repeal Obamacare; and uncertainty surrounding “tax reform.” Compared with this tapestry of troubles, the stock market has been a splendid blessing.

[OP-ED]: El boom de la Bolsa de Trump--¿ilusión o realidad?

 04/25/2017 - 08:45
La valoración de las acciones es difícil. A posteriori, el mercado puede permanecer por encima o por debajo de niveles que reflejan los principios básicos económicos durante largos períodos. Cualquiera sea el caso actual, las acciones no están ni de cerca en los elevados niveles absurdos que alcanzaron durante la “burbuja tecnológica”, a fines de siglo. EFE
Spanish

Lo último que necesita el presidente Trump, en este momento, es que el mercado de valores baje. Después de todo, tiene abundantes preocupaciones: en el exterior, Corea del Norte, Siria, Rusia y Brexit; internamente, la iniciativa estancada de revocar Obamacare; y la incertidumbre en torno a la “reforma fiscal”. Comparado con su mosaico de problemas, el mercado de valores ha sido una bendición del cielo.

Carolina and her family fled from their native Tegucigalpa, the Honduran capital, because for over a year Barrio 18 members had demanded more and more protection money every week to "watch over your business."Their original destination had been the United States until Donald Trump's arrival in the White House temporarily put the brakes on that idea.
