Re: Neverfail's North American ruminations.

You never need wonder where global anti-Americanism comes from. Indeed. Hopefully the world may now be better equipped to put the leash on the beast... I don't think so Sertorio. A US president has only limited powers. Constitutional limitations; the division of powers between executive and legisla...

I'm pretty sure even you all are not more laid back than many parts of the English-speaking Caribbean. 8-)
Probably not Steve. Though unlike these we are not part of the Third World. My comparison was within the context of the developed world.

Running an economy is just as foolish an idea when it comes from the right as it is when it comes from the left. Besides, the political reality is that "its own interests" are always those well connected in Washington and never everyday Americans.
Is it not about time that that changed Steve?

Re: The woes of Italy

A country dropping out of the euro because of poor performance would suffer a very steep and fast drop in its currency value, so it would experience all the woes I mentioned above. On top of that its foreign debt - in US dollars or euros - would suddenly become even more difficult to pay. I absolut...

Re: The Future of the World

I will just say this: American power might have passed its "used by date" (I hope not, but America's overall performance since the end of the Cold war lends me no confidence): however, I do not foresee Europe as being the power that emerges to fill the vacuum. Far more likely it will be the Peoples ...

Re: The Future of the World

The future of the world isn't in globalism, it's in a self conscious technological meta state based on meritocracy. It's not national, it's not ethno though certainly not hostile towards those things - the meritocracy integrates society across class and demographic lines. It is not the mystical mag...

Re: The woes of Italy

Trying to balance trade through currency devaluation is a hopeless task. You may succeed in the short term, but never on the longer term. No one is talking about old style devaluation where the government orders one within the now long superseded context of fixed exchange rates. Rather, it is a mat...

Is it just me or am I seeing foreigners interfere in US politics and therefore elections.

Seems like Mueller could start scanning this forum.
On this website you are seeing foreigners voice opinions: a right guaranteed us under your constitution. :D
