United States Election Results Will Provide Ongoing Political Gridlock In 2019

United States Election Results Will Provide Ongoing Political Gridlock In 2019

The 2018 elections at the Congressional level will provide ongoing political gridlock, beginning in January. Although the Democratic Party will retake the United States House of Representatives, thus ending unified government under the Republicans, they will not have the sufficient legislative power to push through an agenda. The electorate knowingly or not, voted for a divided Congress and government. What they will get is very little actual legislation and even more political turmoil. Despite the political grandstanding, the freshly empowered Democratic leadership […]

United States 2018 Mid-Term Elections: Crucial For Direction Of The Country

Nationally, Republicans were leading by 2%. It is usually Democrats, who win […]

Brazil Moves To The Political Right With Strong Support For Jair BolsonaroJair Bolsonaro

Brazil, the economic giant of South America and 8th largest globally, has been cursed with poor governance for decades. The electorate has responded to the irresponsible siren call of government largesse, for most of the 21st century. The negative and sometimes freewheeling role, that public officials have played in the economy, has reduced overall growth and made the entire country poorer. The Brazilian left-wing socialist Workers Party (PT) in power from 2003 to 2016, provided short term rewards at the expense of […]

The American Economy Comes Roaring Back Under United States President Trump

The American economy had been growing rather slowly, since the economic recovery beginning in 2009. Many pundits and politicians claimed a growth rate of 2%, was the new norm for an advanced economy, like the United States. The election of President Trump in the November elections of 2016, has changed that paradigm, as the domestic economy comes roaring back. The Trump growth agenda was relying on two basic principles. These were business deregulation and a massive tax reform, which would end up […]

Elections in Italy Lead To More Political And Financial Uncertainty For Europe

The March elections in Italy, saw a center-right coalition take first place, but failed to achieve a majority.

That created a hung legislature, which necessitated the building of new political alliances in Italy. Italy is the 3rd largest economy in the Eurozone, 9th largest globally, with a GDP (Gross Domestic Product) of $1.934 trillion USD (United States Dollar). Ongoing political […]

Kyrgyzstan: Central Asia’s Only Democracy Under Siege

Kyrgyzstan remains the only Central Asian country, that retains a functioning democracy.
