Brexit And Democracy

by John H. Cochrane via Grumpy Economist
Thursday, December 6, 2018

Tyler Cowen has a very interesting Bloomberg column on Brexit. Essentially, he views the UK getting this right -- which I agree it does not seem to be doing -- as a crucial test of democracy. Tyler notes that the current agreement serves neither leave nor remain sides well.

Lanhee Chen: 2018 Elections And The Legacy Of George H.W. Bush

by Lanhee J. Chenvia Townhall Review
Thursday, December 6, 2018

The 2018 midterm elections were notable not so much for the so-called “Blue Wave” that washed over the House of Representatives, but instead for the way in which the results demonstrated how politically polarized we are becoming as a country.

U.S. Needs New Arctic Icebreakers. Will Trump's Border Wall Get In The Way?

quoting Alice Hillvia WXXV 25
Monday, December 3, 2018
As the ice disappears, the Arctic is increasingly busy. More ship traffic is pouring into northern shipping routes that are now open for longer periods at the same time that demand for oil and gas is rising. The dissolving ice has become less predictable, raising the risk of ships running aground and spilling oil or stranding cargo, crew and cruise passengers. There are also worries about illegal fishing and smuggling.

quoting Condoleezza Ricevia CNN
Saturday, December 1, 2018

The juxtaposition highlighted the acute loss of the last World War II veteran to occupy the White House, along with the decency and service Bush embodied. It is fitting that news sites' homepages Saturday morning were bracketed by Bush's death and the G20 summit in Argentina. They are, in fact, bookends.

Of the five dimensions of a company’s performance that make up our Drucker Institute rankings, innovation has stood out from the beginning as the toughest for us to capture. Not that sizing up the other four areas—customer satisfaction, employee engagement and development, social responsibility and financial strength—is child’s play.

The Dilemmas Of Competing With Xi Jinping’s China

quoting Elizabeth Economyvia War on the Rocks
Thursday, November 29, 2018
Last year in October, President Xi Jinping strutted to the podium at the Chinese Communist Party’s 19th Party Congress to read his work report. For more than three hours, Xi forced his colleagues to sit and listen in one of the most ostentatious displays of that infamous Chinese phrase, “you listen, I speak,” to which anyone has ever been subjected. More than any other event of the last six years, the 19th Party Congress pressed home Xi’s influence on the Chinese party-state. His ideas were incorporated into the constitution. No obvious successor emerged, suggesting Xi would hold the reins of power indefinitely.
