Money wars: how sanctions and tariffs became Trump’s big guns 19 Aug 5:00am Money wars: how sanctions and tariffs became Trump’s big guns
The Guardian
The president’s hit-’em-where-it-hurts approach to foreign policy is in danger of backfiring as rivals unite against the USSome US presidents use military force to impose America’s will on other countries. Most prefer traditional diplomacy and negotiation, or else they ask allies to help them get their way. Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama stressed the importance of moral example in projecting global leadership. Donald Trump does things differently. Since taking office last year, he has repeatedly resorted to draconian economic sanctions and trade tariffs, launching them like missiles at countries and people he does not approve of. Trump did not invent the practice but it has become his foreign policy weapon of choice.

In the Cape Town enclave that survived apartheid, the new enemy is gentrification 19 Aug 2:59am In the Cape Town enclave that survived apartheid, the new enemy is gentrification
The Guardian
Picturesque Bo-Kaap was for decades the home of Muslim residents. Now, as some cash in on soaring house prices, others want to hold on to their historySunday morning in Cape Town. Two days of rain have washed the dust from the air. Table Mountain is etched against a clear blue southern winter sky. Seagulls wheel on an ocean breeze. In the Bo-Kaap neighbourhood of the city, the famous painted houses shine postcard perfect. Children play on cobbled streets. Men in prayer caps watch, deep in conversation, prayer beads clicking. Yet the apparent calm is misleading. In recent weeks angry young men have burned tyres in the streets of Bo-Kaap. There have been marches and demonstrations. The immediate spark for the anger? Plans to build hotels, luxury apartments and shops. The deeper cause? Fear that gentrification will destroy the community.
