[OP-ED]: Amid Trump’s chaos, a post-American world emerges

 08/01/2017 - 09:10
In 2008, I wrote a book about the emerging “Post-American World,” which was, I noted at the start, not about the decline of America but rather the rise of the rest. Amid the parochialism, ineptitude and sheer disarray of the Trump presidency, the post-American world is coming to fruition much faster than I ever expected.

 In London last week, I met a Nigerian man who succinctly expressed the reaction of much of the world to America these days. “Your country has gone crazy,” he said, with a mixture of outrage and amusement. “I’m from Africa. I know crazy, but I didn’t ever think I would see this in America!”

[OP-ED]: Surge un mundo Post-Americano en medio del caos de Trump

 08/01/2017 - 09:05
En el 2008 escribí un libro sobre el “Mundo Post-Americano” emergente el cual trataba, me di cuenta desde el comienzo, no sobre el declive de Estados Unidos sino sobre el levantamiento del resto. En medio del campanilismo, la ineptitud y desorden puro de la presidencia de Trump, el mundo Post-Americano está llegando a buen término mucho más rápido de lo que jamás imaginé.

La semana pasada conocí en Londres a un hombre nigeriano quien expresó brevemente la reacción de la mayor parte del mundo frente a Estados Unidos estos días. “Tu país se ha vuelto loco”, dijo, con una mezcla de indignación y diversión. “Soy de África. Conozco la locura pero nunca llegué a pensar que vería esto ¡en Estados Unidos!”

El presidente Donald Trump buscará esta semana en su gira europea por Polonia y Alemania promover una relación "más constructiva" con Rusia, con cuyo líder, Vladímir Putin, se verá por primera vez cara a cara en la cumbre del G20, al igual que con su homólogo mexicano, Enrique Peña Nieto.

[OP-ED]: Trump’s radical doctrine of retreat

 06/06/2017 - 16:54
Las consecuencias de la postura y de las acciones de Trump son difíciles de prever. Podrían resultar en el lento deterioro del orden internacional liberal. Podrían significar el auge de un orden nuevo y no tan liberal, promovido por China e India, ambos países mercantilistas y nacionalistas. EFE

We now have a Trump Doctrine, and it is, in its conception at least, the most radical departure from a bipartisan American foreign policy since 1945. In an op-ed for The Wall Street Journal, National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn and national security adviser H.R. McMaster explain that President Trump has “a clear-eyed outlook that the world is not a ‘global community’ but an arena where nations, nongovernmental actors and businesses engage and compete for advantage.”

Ahora tenemos una doctrina Trump la cual es, al menos en su concepción, la ruptura más radical de una política exterior estadounidense bipartidista desde el año 1945. En un artículo periodístico de opinión para el periódico Wall Street Journal, Gary Cohn, director del Consejo Económico Nacional y H.R. McMaster, asesor de Seguridad Nacional, explican que el presidente Trump posee “una perspectiva clara de que el mundo no es una “comunidad global” sino un ámbito en el cual las naciones, los agentes no gubernamentales y las empresas participan y compiten para sacar ventaja”.

Ethic experts are concerned that despite removing herself from the management of her Ivanka Trump fashion company and becoming an unpaid government employee in March, her political and business interests are still so closely linked that she is deep in an ethical “danger zone” over conflict of interest laws.

[OP-ED]: The Return of the center

 02/28/2017 - 15:33

Polls indicate that the far-right candidate, Marine Le Pen, is leading the field of candidates in the first round with about 25 percent of the vote. But in the second round, which pits only the two front-runners against one another, Macron is projected to beat her handily. EFE
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

By now it is settled wisdom that we are witnessing the rise of radical forces on the left and right around the globe. Populists of both varieties, who share a disdain for globalization, are energized, and certain that the future is going their way. But the center is rising again, even in the heart of the old world.
