  • Biden and Trump share a faith in import tariffs, despite inflation risks

    Jun 4, 2024

    Promising to make things more expensive when consumers already are angry over high prices might seem an unusual political strategy. But it's one that both President Biden and former president Donald Trump are choosing. Both men, as they vie for a second White House term, say that tariffs on imported Chinese goods are needed to promote domestic manufacturing and to clap back at China's zero-sum trade practices. While economists say that tariffs result in higher prices, both Biden and Trump...

  • Mexico fought for democracy. Could it slide back to a one-party state?

    Jun 4, 2024

    MEXICO CITY - Claudia Sheinbaum's resounding victory in Mexico's presidential election has injected fresh energy into a leftist movement that has rapidly reshaped the United States' most populous neighbor and is poised to assume far-reaching control over government. It took Mexico decades of painstaking effort to transition from a one-party state to a 21st-century democracy. Now, some warn, it's at risk of returning to the authoritarian system of the 20th century, under a different name. "There...
