Why Trump's populist appeal is about culture, not the economy - Vox
Populists, and this is key, make a very deliberate effort to show that they’re of the common people. They’re not pointy-headed elites or cultural sophisticates. There are many demagogues who are populists and populists who are demagogues, but the two things are obviously separate. You can get demagogues who have other basic ways of expressing themselves.

Sean Illing
The transgressive part seems to me important. Populism, whatever else it is, is about disruption, about shattering the status quo.

Pippa Norris
That's right. In a liberal democracy, it's about shattering the established parties, the established cooperations and the established intellectual forms of power and hegemony. In some other countries, of course, you can see this is more democratic but it depends very much on the regime which is in power.

31st Annual Survey of Corporate Executives Commentary: Political Risk Comes to the United States - Area Development
Already some companies have reportedly reconsidered foreign investments after weighing the benefits of cost savings and operational efficiency against the pitfalls of adverse publicity, risk to future government contracts, and the threat of new taxes on trade. Such overt political risk has been quietly influencing a growing number of investment decisions for some time — consider the impact that privacy laws have had on global data center projects. The new political risk originating in the United States, however, takes this concern to another level.

This one is a real blooper and I cannot let it pass by - Marginal REVOLUTION
I don’t usually “go after” news stories and headlines but this one is such a bad mistake, and it so affected my Twitter feed (I was swindled too), that it deserves comment (the pointer by the way comes from Alex, our Alex). Stephanie Saul wrote in The New York Times:

Nearly 40 percent of colleges are reporting overall declines in applications from international students, according to a survey…

Here is what the opening of the survey itself said:

39% of responding institutions reported a decline in international applications, 35% reported an increase, and 26% reported no change in applicant numbers.

The Domestic Conspiracy That Gave Trump The Election Is In Plain Sight | The Huffington Post
Information presently public and available confirms that Erik Prince, Rudy Giuliani, and Donald Trump conspired to intimidate FBI Director James Comey into interfering in, and thus directly affecting, the 2016 presidential election. This conspiracy was made possible with the assistance of officers in the New York Police Department and agents within the New York field office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. All of the major actors in the conspiracy have already confessed to its particulars either in word or in deed; moreover, all of the major actors have publicly exhibited consciousness of guilt after the fact. This assessment has already been the subject of articles in news outlets on both sides of the political spectrum, but has not yet received substantial investigation by major media.
