El desastre en la campaña de Trump

WASHINGTON, DC – Donald Trump, el candidato presidencial nominado por el Partido Republicano de Estados Unidos, ha vuelto a hacer ajustes en la organización de su campaña, probablemente revelando con ello más de sí mismo y su estilo de gestión de lo que quisiera que la gente viera. Pocas campañas presidenciales han tenido cambios de equipos tan caóticos como esta.

Hoy encabezan el equipo de Trump dos personas que nunca han estado a cargo de una campaña presidencial y cuyos instintos políticos se contradicen entre sí.

Kellyanne Conway, su nueva gerente de campaña, es una especialista en encuestas electorales que por años ha analizado datos de estudios de la derecha republicana convencional (el ala derecha del partido es lo que podemos considerar como “convencional”, ya que en esencia su centro ha desaparecido). Durante las primarias republicanas, trabajó para el “súper PAC” que apoyara a Ted Cruz, el encarnizado rival de Trump. Conway es una republicana convencida e inteligente de quien se puede esperar una influencia constante y sensata en la campaña. Si logra imponerse (y si Trump puede atenerse a una línea temática) veremos un candidato republicano más razonable.

  3. Murdoch's Last Stand?

    Rupert Murdoch’s sale of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney for $66 billion may mark the end of the media mogul’s career, which will long be remembered for its corrosive effect on democratic discourse on both sides of the Atlantic. 

    From enabling the rise of Donald Trump to hacking the telephone of a murdered British schoolgirl, Murdoch’s media empire has staked its success on stoking populist rage.

    The Dangerous Delusion of Price Stability

    Since the hyperinflation of the 1970s, which central banks were right to combat by whatever means necessary, maintaining positive but low inflation has become a monetary-policy obsession. But, because the world economy has changed dramatically since then, central bankers have started to miss the monetary-policy forest for the trees.

  5. Harvard’s Jeffrey Frankel Measures the GOP’s Tax Plan

    Jeffrey Frankel, a professor at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and a former member of President Bill Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisers, outlines the five criteria he uses to judge the efficacy of tax reform efforts. And in his view, the US Republicans’ most recent offering fails miserably.

    The Holy Grail of Genetic Engineering

    CRISPR-Cas – a gene-editing technique that is far more precise and efficient than any that has come before it – is poised to change the world. But ensuring that those changes are positive – helping to fight tumors and mosquito-borne illnesses, for example – will require scientists to apply the utmost caution.
