It’s Time for the United States and Europe to Face the Politics of Cultural...

Cultural displacement, masquerading as economic and border security anxiety, is chipping away at societal cohesion on both sides of the Atlantic. There are, of course, many drivers of this divide, including economic anxiety about globalization, wage stagnation, and career displacement, along with a perceived loss of community values due to continuing immigration and a fear of immigrant crime and foreign terrorism, often driven by exaggerated claims about the threat. The result is that for many Americans, demographic change and immigration pose a direct challenge to established concepts of identity and pre-existing social hierarchies. In 2000, some 2 percent of Americans identified themselves as multiracial. By 2045, white Americans will no longer be the majority in the United States. Europe’s experience with identity—both at the national and supranational level—has been quite different: In many European Union countries, diversity is a newer issue than it is in the United States. What can the United States and European countries learn from each other’s experiences contending with these turbulent forces? Perhaps the core lesson is how many similarities there are in the populist and nativist messaging both sides of the Atlantic are facing, and thus in the shared challenge for those of us who oppose it. Of course, there is plenty the United States can do to get its own house in order. In addition to the Trump administration revamping its heartless policy prescriptions for asylum-seekers on the southern border, Trump himself must dial back his hostile rhetoric regarding immigrants, which provides powerful fuel for those who are already fearful.

The Week Ahead In Politics

The meeting between Presidents Putin and Trump in Helsinki reverberated throughout the week and particularly on Capitol Hill. COLEMAN: NPR's Mara Liasson is here to help us process the past week and prepare for the next one. LIASSON: I think members of Congress are going to want to ask the secretary of state, what happened in the meeting between Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump? But the Russians say agreements were made, and the Russians are eager to follow up on those agreements. COLEMAN: Well, can you tell us about the pushback from the president's party in Congress? But Congress did go forward. COLEMAN: Well, we might get to do it all over again, right, Mara? LIASSON: Yes, because one of the other big news stories of the week was that the White House announced that the president is inviting Vladimir Putin to come to Washington in the fall for more talks. COLEMAN: NPR's Mara Liasson. LIASSON: Thank you.

NJ Politics Digest: Is State’s Business Incentive Program Too Generous?

Researchers at Rutgers University’s Bloustein School of Public Planning and Public Policy essentially tried to punt on determining if economic incentives and tax breaks really help New Jersey, saying it was too early to draw conclusions, according to a report on NJ.com. But the report did point out that the state’s Economic Development Agency (EDA) might be giving away too many tax credits as well as “redundant” bonuses. In five years, the state awarded a total of $5.4 billion in tax credits. Trump’s been very, very good for these Jersey Democrats. Is it worth it for New Jersey to dole out billions of dollars to lure corporations to the Garden State? NJ.com Read more Phil Murphy, public workers union agree on $34M contract Gov.
