On the same day as Trump appeared to back down on his demand for funding from Congress, Mexican foreign minister Luis Videgaray called the idea ofbuilding a border wall“unfriendly, “a hostile act” and “unlikely to fulfill the objectives” of stopping the flow of migrants and illegal merchandise into the United States.

[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.
