Donald Trump is decimating America’s tourist economy

Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and now Northern California – tourist destinations all -- are reeling from a death toll and economic hit brought by hurricanes, floods, and fires. But tourism dollars aren’t going to help them rebuild. Nations are issuing U.S. travel warnings and fanning fears of an America that no longer welcomes foreigners or succors its own citizens.

Worried about North Korea? Pay attention to the Iran Deal

There would be no more crippling a blow to the prospects for a peaceful outcome with North Korea than walking away from the Iran deal.

Trump trash-talks his way into war

Trump’s fighting words and challenge to Un’s manhood is ill-advised and dangerous. It serves no strategic end. It might serve as an ego boost or to re-activate a domestic political base. Presidential taunting of a foreign nation, however, should be calculated, with clear objectives and achievable outcomes. This is nuts.

Want your local economy to grow? Start embracing immigrants

All eyes are on Washington as the fate of nearly 800,000 undocumented young people brought here as children dominates the debate over America’s broken immigration system. But while many focus attention on the nation’s capital, important discussion is happening this week in New York. As the UN General Assembly meets, mayors from around the United States — and the world — are gathering to discuss how cities and towns of all sizes and political stripes are competing to attract, welcome and integrate immigrants. The reason for their leadership? While DC politicians debate the value of immigration, local communities see the benefits firsthand.
