[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?

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.

 I thought liberals were against bullying. So why are they taking such joy in piling on Bill O’Reilly?

Pensé que los liberales estaban en contra del matonismo. Entonces, ¿por qué están sintiendo tanta alegría en criticar en masa a Bill O’Reilly?

In “Shattered,”  journalists Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes portrait Clinton's campaign as a Titanic-like disaster: an epic fail made up of a series of perverse and often avoidable missteps by an out-of-touch candidate and her strife-ridden staff that turned “a winnable race” into “another iceberg-seeking campaign ship.”

[OP-ED]: Book focuses on why we need power -- and how to get it

 04/18/2017 - 08:30
Liu’s latest act of courage and belief is that he has written an important book on a topic -- power -- that Americans need to understand better. He has a message for us. And we’d be wise to listen.
English

At America’s core, you’ll find two competing beliefs about citizen power. On the one hand, Americans cherish the idea that one person can create social change. But there is also the sense that -- to quote Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders -- the game is rigged.
