Uncertainty over trade policies not helping Southern California’s economy

A week ago, President Donald Trump threatened to close all points of entry along the U.S.-Mexican border — a prospect that caused businesses across the country to shudder.

The Two Venezuelas and Foreign Intervention

Today Venezuela is at an impasse, a term allegedly coined by Voltaire to refer to a situation devoid of exits. It has infinite inflation, four immobilized branches of government, two presidents, and the worst humanitarian crisis to hit the Americas in decades. There is sporadic violence on the streets and in improvised prisons hidden away from YouTube. What today resembles a civil war without weapons could easily escalate into bloodshed. Yet it is foreign powers and not domestic actors that will...
