Political polarization -- now WORSE THAN EVER!!!!




I do think the above image captures a truth. But I'm also not convinced that the forces driving politics from the Democratic side are all that much better. Anyway, I have a new thing up at Medium.com on political polarization and how it is worse now than ever, according to voting patterns in congress:

Political polarization and gridlock. It’s worse that ever, or at least it seems that way. In fact, it is worse than it has been for 65 years. That’s the conclusion of a recent study by researchers who looked at the history of political polarization in the US since 1949, as judged by congressional voting records. The study found that cooperation between members of different parties is now lacking more than ever before. Things were actually a lot better back in the Nixon era, even during the most divisive days of the Vietnam War and Watergate, when a President and Vice President were forced to resign, and even in the aftermath of the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy.

The whole (short) thing is here.

  7. The foreign exchange (an acronym for "forex"), is the change of 1 forex into any other forex. Currencies aren't traded on an trade,however immediately among (crucial) banks, multinationals, governments and economic establishments. For the maximum part, the forex marketplace consists of hedging positions and strategies of national and worldwide multinational businesses. Think a agency has a settlement for the availability of goods, such as motors, inside the destiny. The cfo (leader monetary officer) of that business will shield himself from ability economic loss with the aid of hedging fluctuating alternate quotes. Hedging way protecting the threat of loss with the aid of destiny fluctuations of the change rate. That is because there is a length among the signing of the settlement and the real transport of the goods, in this case motors. It is hedging that brings massive quantities of cash to the foreign exchange marketplace.
