    Asian Demonstrators and the American Dream

    Ian Buruma

    Protesters against the military coup in Myanmar hope for a US intervention, showing that America’s image as the champion of global freedom is not yet dead, even after four years of Donald Trump’s “America First” isolationism. But the US was always a selective supporter of democracy, and now it is a diminished one. 

    explains why pro-democracy protesters who place their hopes in the US are bound to be disappointed.

    What Should Biden Do About Venezuela?

    Ricardo Hausmann & José Ramon Morales-Arilla

    Former US President Donald Trump's policy of maximum pressure on the Venezuelan dictatorship failed to dislodge the regime or alleviate the humanitarian crisis. If Joe Biden is to succeed, he will need a policy that makes life as burdensome as possible for the elite and as bearable and democratic as possible for ordinary Venezuelans. 

    warn that negotiations without sanctions, as some advocate, is a strategy that leads nowhere.

    Gordon S. Wood

    highlights the striking similarities between the current political era and an earlier “epoch of the hoax.”

    Is Inflation Alive?

    Huge fiscal and monetary stimulus programs have sparked a growing debate about whether advanced economies may sooner or later experience the sort of rapid price growth last seen a generation ago. While stimulus advocates point to current weak demand and the public’s deeply ingrained low-inflation expectations, anxious hawks fear that a new and dangerous global inflationary consensus may be taking hold.
