As the City of Angels begins to look like City of Capone

Chicago has a reputation for a history of political corruption and official lawlessness dating back at least as far as Prohibition. In one vintage joke, a thirsty visitor to the city flags down a cab driver. “Do you know where I can get a drink?” he asks. “You see that church?” says the cab driver, pointing to an ornate building. “That church?” the visitor repeats. “Yeah,” says the cab driver, “That’s the only place in town where you can’t get a drink.” Despite that city’s tradition of indiffere...

Jeff Bezos, Donald Trump and crony capitalism

Donald Trump’s Tweet dubbing Jeff Bezos, Amazon’s billionaire founder, “Jeff Bozo” reveals more than the locker room MO of our president. Our country’s roots are in England, where people of importance are knighted. In America, we now have our own version of knighthood: a nickname from Donald Trump. Amazon is this little hidden gem you may not have heard of where you can buy things.  It’s just like eBay except the Amazon stuff doesn’t show up at your house smelling like cigarette smoke and moth b...

US joins China and Turkey in troubling approach to extraditions

A distasteful development in international relations has recently surfaced: the use of arrest warrants and extradition requests of individuals as bargaining chips in matters of broader foreign policy. Turkey, China, and the US are presently involved in actions that reflect a willingness to put pressure on each other by targeting private individuals. This is a corruption of the protection of individual rights in criminal cases, which is fundamental to the rule of law in America. Turkey has asked ...

The Middle Kingdom and the U.S. economy

In the poker match between President Donald Trump and China’s new all-but-emperor, Xi Jinping, it’s widely assumed that Xi holds the best hand. Yet President Xi’s hand may not be as awesome as it appears, while the United States, even under this very flawed president, may hold some fine cards. Of course, Xi wields power in a way that Trump could only dream about. He has close to total control over the media, academia and the business community. In a way not seen in my over three decades of trave...

Marko Arnautovic drops huge West Ham exit hint vs Arsenal

West Ham 1 Arsenal 0 10th place West Ham took on 5th place Arsenal in Saturday’s first game of the day. A win for West Ham could have seen them move as high as 7th depending on how many they scored.
