    Age-old problem: America's gerontocracy

    Age-old problem: America's gerontocracy

    Despite calls that he is unfit to serve, Joe Biden is determined to stay in the race for president. He's not the only politician reluctant to let go. America's legislators are the oldest in the OECD, a club of mostly rich countries. What's behind their staying power at the top of politics? And what impact have they had on the country?

    Charlotte Howard hosts with John Prideaux and Idrees Kahloon. They’re joined by Norman Ornstein of the American Enterprise Institute and Elaine Kamarck of the Brookings Institution.

    For the ages: the Supreme Court’s momentous term

    For the ages: the Supreme Court’s momentous term

    The Supreme Court ended its term this week, with rulings on abortion, administrative law, January 6th and presidential immunity. But controversies over impartiality continued to undermine the court's reputation. How is the Supreme Court changing America? And what will recent rulings mean for November’s election?

    Charlotte Howard hosts with James Bennet and Idrees Kahloon. Professor Jennifer Nou, from the University of Chicago Law School, and The Economist’s Steven Mazie also contribute.

    Trailer: Boom!

    Trailer: Boom!

    Why are two old, unpopular men the main candidates for the world’s most demanding job? It’s the question John Prideaux, The Economist’s US editor, gets asked the most. And the answer lies in the peculiar politics of the baby boomers. 
    Since 1992, every American president bar one has been a white man born in the 1940s. That run looks likely to span 36 years - not far off the age of the median American. This cohort was born with aces in their pockets. Their parents defeated Nazism and won the cold war. They hit the jobs market at an unmatched period of wealth creation. They have benefitted from giant leaps in technology, and in racial and gender equality. 
    And yet, their last act in politics sees the two main parties accusing each other of wrecking American democracy. As the boomers near the end of their political journey, John Prideaux sets out to make sense of their inheritance and their legacy. 
    Launching July 2024.

    Debate debacle: will Biden step aside?

    Debate debacle: will Biden step aside?

    On Thursday in Atlanta, Joe Biden and Donald Trump squared off in the first presidential debate of the year. Mr Biden, who appeared frail and muddled, gave a performance that was such an unmitigated disaster that it has called his candidacy into question. Was the debate a turning point in the race? And could Mr Biden be replaced as the Democratic candidate?

    Charlotte Howard hosts with Adam O’Neal and Idrees Kahloon. John Sides and The Economist’s James Bennet also contribute.

    Model behaviour: forecasting America’s election

    Model behaviour: forecasting America’s election

    The Economist’s new election forecast says Donald Trump is slightly favoured to beat Joe Biden. The race is a rematch, with voters knowing more about the candidates than in any election in generations. But after slip-ups in recent years, how reliable are the polls? With five months to go, what can we say with confidence about the likely outcome of the election?

    John Prideaux hosts with Jon Fasman and Adam O’Neal. The Economist’s Dan Rosenheck and Owen Winter also contribute.

Twenty Years Later

“If something like the Rwandan genocide were to happen again”

Did everyone just forget about a country called Myanmar?

And I don’t understand why does the US have to be the interventionist “beacon of liberty” all of sudden. Year after year after year the war on terror emphasized the financial cost of American escapades in the third world, why does the fall of Afghanistan suddenly led everyone to re-embrace this flawed ideology just because a couple of girls got to go to school?

Did everyone forget the hundreds of thousands of girls killed in bombings and terrorist attacks thanks to the instability the US brought upon the Middle East?

Godawful episode.
