[OP-ED]: Truth has become useless in Venezuela

 04/25/2017 - 14:25
“Five people have been shot in separate incidents near protests but under unclear circumstances. One of these victims was shot by an alleged opposition supporter from a high-rise building, although the perpetrator’s political affiliation is yet to be confirmed,” Bothroyd Rojas added. “Nine protesters appear to have died as a result of their own actions (at least nine were electrocuted in the recent looting of a bakery).”

The crisis in Venezuela is grave and complicated, which makes the OAS’ Secretary General Luis Almagro’s consuming obsession with Venezuela not only strange and counterproductive, but totally inadmissible.

[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.

[OP-ED]: On North Korea: Bluster in search of strategy

 04/24/2017 - 10:32
A U-2 high-altitude reconnaissance plane landed at the US air base in Osan, south of Seoul (South Korea) after completing a mission on the eve of the anniversary of the founding of the North Korean Army. Concern over the possibility of North Korea holding a sixth nuclear test on the occasion of the anniversary is growing. EFE
English

Every American administration takes a while to settle into a basic approach to the world. President Trump’s team has had a rockier start than most, with many important positions in every key agency still unfilled.

A cada administración estadounidense le toma un tiempo establecer un enfoque básico del mundo. El equipo del presidente Trump tuvo un comienzo más complicado que el de la mayoría, con varios puestos importantes en cada agencia principal que aún siguen vacantes.

 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?
