AmCham Policy Report: Issue 6 - June 6:The Future of Prague: Making Stuff Here, Selling It There

Cities attract people of different talents and skills. Its streets and buildings form competitive cauldrons where these differences are refined into specialization. Specializations combine into industries that produce a sum greater than the individual parts. Those sums are then sold elsewhere to create wealth. Cities, then, are the deep sea vent of economies: the place where elements collide to create new forms of life. That makes them vital for any national strategy of growth. In fact, such a strategy should piece together how the cities within a country’s borders can complement each other as they compete. Prague, today, has a challenge. Read a full version of the report in Czech and English here.

AmCham Policy Report: Issue 5 - May 17: US Presidential Elections: Trumped and grumpy

It became clear early that the 2016 Presidential election was to be a contest pitting Donald Trump against the Republican Party and the Democratic establishment led by Hillary Clinton against another outsider promising to renew the ideals of progressive government. Trump has won. In ways hard to imagine just a few months ago, the celebrity mogul has shredded the longtime belief that money, loyalty and a litmus test of conservative values determined who the Republicans would choose as their candidate. Trump eschewed the party’s vast fundraising network, spent less than his opponents, refused to pledge himself to the party if he lost (or won), and (aside from his position on immigration) took positions that were on the weak edge of the party’s ideology. Read the English version here.
