    Why Bannonism-Trumpism Has Set Its Sights on Aotearoa New Zealand - Buchanan and Manning

    Why Bannonism-Trumpism Has Set Its Sights on Aotearoa New Zealand - Buchanan and Manning

    https://youtu.be/mG3nm_a0D0U

    A View from Afar – Bannonism-Trumpism, a cultural ideological export - Political scientist Paul Buchanan and Selwyn Manning deep-dive into how Aotearoa New Zealand is in the cross-hairs of two distinct political powers - one has been around for awhile and applies influence operations aimed at elites; and the other is new to this part of the world and uses cultural and ideological diffusion that is aimed at civil society and aims to change the character of democracy itself. Can countries like New Zealand resist the slide into US-styled political chaos?
    In this podcast we explore the under-defined, but hardly hidden, ideology that we will refer to as Bannonism-Trumpism.
    So what is taking shape in New Zealand? Why is New Zealand a political lab-rat of sorts?
    How is this battle taking place for the minds and political thinking of New Zealand voters?
    What should you be aware of?
    What political parties are most vulnerable to these two powerful external influences?
    What is the end-game?
    Is resistance achievable?

    Biden's Time - One Year Since Trump Lost The White House

    Biden's Time - One Year Since Trump Lost The White House

    https://youtu.be/jnQdZMdkxeg

    A View from Afar - In this podcast, political scientist Paul Buchanan and Selwyn Manning discuss: how it is now over one year since United States voters went to the polls and elected Joe Biden as president - or perhaps it’s fair to say, voted Donald Trump out of the White House.

    In this episode, Buchanan and Manning analyse the big issues that have challenged the Joe Biden Administration, and examine Biden’s wins and losses as a first term US President.

    So far there have been two iconic moments in the Biden presidency: getting an infrastructure rebuild plan through the House of Representatives; and inching toward a rapprochement with the People’s Republic of China.

    Both have taken place this week.

    What is the sum of Joe Biden's impact on domestic USA and around the world?

    And has Biden's biggest challenge been domestic, on confronting the question of how to overcome the enduring legacy of Donald Trump?

    While evidence suggests Trumpism has now become a vocal force throughout the United States, it has also become a cultural ideology for export . Evidence of that can be seen in liberal democracies around the world, in countries such as New Zealand and Australia.

    Has Biden been able to realign the USA's outward cultural expression to one of change, or has Trump won that fight with Steve Bannon and other disciples packaging their views for export?

    PODCAST: Buchanan + Manning on Covid-19 Driven Economic Change

    PODCAST: Buchanan + Manning on Covid-19 Driven Economic Change

    A View from Afar - In this podcast, political scientist Paul Buchanan and Selwyn Manning discuss the Covid-19 driven transition from Neo-liberal to Neo-Keynesian Economics.

    In particular, Buchanan and Manning examine whether we are witnessing a fundamental change to global economics and consider:

    How since the Covid-19 pandemic arrived even neo-liberal state economies have embraced an expansionist government strategy and significant degrees of stimulus.
    It would appear that the excesses of small government, market driven economies have, at this time, run their course.
    But what will replace the earlier systems?
    From a political economy point of view, what can we expect to take shape as the Pandemic grinds on, even while we all have had a glimpse of what a post-Pandemic new normal may mean?

    Buchanan + Manning on Geopolitics Railroads COP26 - Plus New-Generation Attack Drones

    Buchanan + Manning on Geopolitics Railroads COP26 - Plus New-Generation Attack Drones

    https://youtu.be/UI3YQo3bEt8
    A View from Afar - In this podcast, political scientist Paul Buchanan and Selwyn Manning discuss two issues: the evolution of new generation attack drones; and the COP26 meeting in Glasgow this week. Specifically, Buchanan and Manning unpack:


    Whether Geopolitics has railroaded a broad-based consensus of climate interventionism
    Why Russia and China abandoned the Cop26 multilateral forum?
    How mostly developed nations state the take away agreements help address climate change, and how Greenpeace and many other environment groups say fundamental problems remain with how developed nations address the climate change challenge.

    ALSO: We discuss the latest in the evolution of high-tech militarised attack drones. What can we now expect to see? And, how will countries defend themselves against AI driven attacks?

    Supply-Chains, Geo-Economic Resets, Post-Pandemic Security - Buchanan and Manning

    Supply-Chains, Geo-Economic Resets, Post-Pandemic Security - Buchanan and Manning

    https://youtu.be/RbLQKOauxys
    A View from Afar – In this podcast, Paul G. Buchanan and Selwyn Manning analyse how supply-chain bottlenecks, a global economic reset, and post-pandemic security are about to trigger a new era in geo-economics.
    Wherever you are around the world, if you haven’t yet experienced the impact of supply-chain pressures, then you soon will.
    As 2021 edges toward a conclusion, everyone and everything is impacted by supply-chain pressures. This problem laps at your front door with you waiting for your online-ordered-product to be delivered. And, it scales up to monumental proportions as global super economies wait for the latest shipment of iron ore or semi-conductors to dock in port.
    At this stage along the global-pandemic timeline, supply-chain bottlenecks are a huge problem that impacts on every sector of our lives from the petrol our vehicles consume to the rice we have with our meals.
    And this problem is going to get more challenging as countries move to seek a best-case-economic-advantage as the world slowly emerges out from the shadow of Covid-19.
    We have all heard a lot about a new world emerging in the post-pandemic period.


    But what will this look like?
    What impact will global change have on domestic, regional, and global economies?
    And, how will global powers react to a redefined world economic order?
    If change is coming, and it is, then how can the world re-emerge from this pandemic-period, and ensure progress and security are in sync?

    Progress and security, that will be the next challenge of our times.
