What We’re Following
The Future of Work: Speaking on her economic plan from Warren, Michigan, Hillary Clinton revealed few new details. She did reiterate her opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership deal, criticize her rival Donald Trump’s tax plans, and promise that her own plan would create over 10 million jobs—compared to a loss of at least 3 million jobs under President Trump, she claimed. Meanwhile, a new report predicts that male-dominated industries like mining and manufacturing, which lost about 160,000 jobs last year, will continue to decline, while female-dominated industries depending on skills like empathy are on the rise. Can the promises of politicians keep up with the changing workforce?
The Lessons of History: Europe seems to be under siege by terrorism, with attackers directed or inspired by ISIS striking civilians in Nice, Munich, Normandy, and beyond. This problem has a precedent, though; from Basque separatists in Spain to the Irish Republican Army, Europe has experienced terrorist threats and controlled them. But unlike past nationalist movements, today’s threat comes from lone wolves isolated within the mainstream populace. Addressing it will take a mass coordinated effort, with agencies across Europe talking to each other.
