quoting Edward Paul Lazearvia Yahoo Finance
Thursday, January 23, 2020

In early 2018, President Donald Trump reportedly expressed a desire for more immigrants from Norway and fewer from countries such as Haiti, labeling the latter with an expletive.

Breaking Out Of The Democratic Slump

by Larry Diamondvia Journal of Democracy
Wednesday, January 22, 2020

Since 2006, democracy in the world has been trending downward. A number of liberal democracies are becoming less liberal, and authoritarian regimes are developing more repressive tendencies. Democracies are dying at the hands of elected authoritarian populists who neuter or take over the institutions meant to constrain them. Changes in the international environment, as well as technological developments and growing inequality, have contributed to this democratic slump.
