Byron,S. they say" Xol said he faces constant questions from nosy villagers about his trip to the border "They say You went because you are dumb" he said "Thats the first thing they say How did you not think You left your son in the US" As Byrons separation from his parents stretches into its fourth month small-town gossip and family tension are the least of Xols problems To finance his unsuccessful journey north he had to borrow money from a friend and take out a third mortgage on his house Now hes scrambling to make payments on $8000 in debt handing all his monthly earnings to the

[email protected] Jordan Schneider is a fellow of the Hertog War Studies Program One of the most flawed pro-Donald Trump arguments currently circulating suggests that his political inexperience wont matter Since most presidential decisions are toss-ups the theory goes all you have to do is pick good advisors who will help you make the right calls But Trump a poor judge of character who doesnt understand the basics of governing will probably stumble from unforced error to unforced error On Monday the Wall Street Journal reported that when President Obama met with Trump "Mr Obama walked his successor through the duties of running the country and Mr Trump seemed surprised by the scope said people familiar with the meeting" Advisorsespecially second-rate ideologues like Newt Gingrich Rudy Giuliani and Steve Bannon and Trump’s neophyte childrendon’t replace the need for Trump to have the personal knowledge and initiative to solve complex political problems Decisions that make it to a Presidents desk are often the most intractable and important in the world Thousands of senior administration officials conduct innumerable interagency meetings to find consensus before kicking an issue to the President The job of the President is more akin to directing the worlds most complicated orchestra than flipping a coin You cant look at the different sections individuallyeach decision you make about the violins also impacts the winds and percussion And as the conductor youre the only one accountable for how the music sounds But unlike conductors presidents have to rewrite the score constantly History has shown us countless examples of national leaders who changed history with initiatives their advisors either overlooked or vigorously opposed Take Churchill rallying the UK to continue the fight after France fell Presidents know that finding creative solutions is where they can matter the most When asked about what keeps him up at night President Obama said his Syria policy "I do ask myself was there something that we hadnt thought of Was there some move that is beyond what was being presented to me that maybe a Churchill could have seen or an Eisenhower might have figured out" Creative decision making is one critical component to evaluating a President’s “Value over Replacement” The concept lifted from baseball analytics tries to look at how the president acted differently from their average replacement For instance while Thomas Jefferson commonly earns praise for making the Louisiana Purchase most of his contemporaries also agreed it was a good idea making his decision to pay up for the French-owned land less impressive The US is not a company If a CEO messes upas Trump frequently hasthe worst-case scenario sees a few thousand folks out of work The risks in government are immeasurably higher Defaulting on debt triggers not an orderly Chapter 11 proceeding but a global recession Overplaying a hand in a negotiation doesn’t just sour a deal but could start a war Policy experience helps presidents better evaluate advice and predict consequences in turn decreasing the odds of catastrophe As Arthur Koestler writes in Darkness at Noon Soviet leaders "all thought one could treat history like experiments in physics The difference is in physics one can repeat the experiment a thousand times but in history only once" Trump has demonstrated extraordinary accomplishment at one thing and one thing onlywinning a presidential election Trump will fail as president for many reasons chief among them his ignorance As Newt Gingrich said in August "He cant learn what he doesnt know because he doesnt know he doesnt know it" Contact us at [email protected] IDEAS TIME Ideas hosts the world’s leading voices providing commentary on events in news

supermarket shoppers The companies involved are sometimes too obscure for customers to care – take for example the ongoing litigation surrounding the attempt to merge Americas two largest food service companies Sysco and US Foods But name recognition has brought last weeks announced merger of HJ Heinz Co and Kraft Foods Group Inc to the fore of business news After all these companies products are household staples most readers of this article probably have a Heinz or Kraft product in their refrigerator right now While this merger may seem innocuous who cares that the mac and cheese company owns the ketchup company there could be serious ramifications for consumers and producers The new Kraft Heinz Company would be the third-largest food company in America and the fifth-largest worldwide with an expected market value of over $80 billion The merger was coordinated by Heinz owner 3G Capitala Brazilian private investment group with its fingers already deep in the food and beverage sectorand Warren Buffetts Berkshire Hathaway This is the second time in as many years that these two firms have worked together on a major food company acquisition In 2013 3G and Berkshire orchestrated a hostile takeover of Heinz in a $28 billion deal Independently 3G is deeply invested in the fast food sector In 2010 the group acquired Burger King which it then merged with Tim Hortons in 2014 to create Restaurant Brands International now a $23 billion international quick-service restaurant company 3G also has close ties with Anheuser-Busch InBev the largest beer brewer in the world and also a Brazilian-owned company Four founding partners of 3G sit on ABIs board Deal-makers say that one of the benefits of this merger is huge savings in cost-cutting "synergy potential" in industry jargon to the tune of $15 billion But where will this money come from Analysts point to economies of scale but theres also 3Gs looming history of slicing jobs in the name of greater shareholder profits After 3G led InBevs takeover of Anheuser-Busch it cut 1400 jobs mostly in St Louis And after its acquisition of Heinz it slashed 600 jobs around North America As for Tim Hortons 350 Canadian workers lost their jobs in January And job cuts arent the only reason 3G has come under fire for its merger activity Just last year the group found itself embroiled in conflict after critics wondered whether its relocation of Restaurant Brands International to Canada was an attempt to evade US corporate taxes The alliance of these two giant companies means even further consolidation in a market that is already dominated by a small number of corporate players We commonly associate these brands with their anchor sectors over which they have impressive market power: Kraft alone controls 80% of packaged macaroni and cheese sales and Heinz controls 60% of ketchup sales But according to a report from Food & Water Watch these companies influence is felt in many other supermarket aisles Kraft is among the top 4 companies producing mayonnaise salad dressing pickles cottage cheese sour cream "natural cheese" bacon and lunch meat Heinz is among the top 4 companies producing meat sauces pasta sauces frozen appetizers and "frozen handheld food" United the Kraft Heinz Company would bring in $222 billion annually in sales The Kraft/Heinz deal makes it "even more difficult for us to envision a world where we [have] a competitive market for food" according to Patrick Woodall Research Director and Senior Policy Advocate at Food & Water Watch For consumers this will likely mean less competition to lower prices In recent years giant retailers like Walmart have learned how to place enormous pressure on distributors and producers to meet a low price point Smaller independent producers usually have to meet those demands But giants like Heinz and Kraft are far better able to protect their profit margins "When a company as big as Kraft joins a company as big as Heinz they have a bigger footprint in the supermarket" Woodall explains This can sometimes result in higher prices overall as the food processors "work closely with the supermarket to extract money from consumers" For shoppers this merger will also further narrow our options as we wander down the supermarket aisles "Consumers think theyre making choices" Woodall says "But oftentimes these choices are sold by the same company manufactured by the same plant and just bear different labels" It is already difficult for new small companies to get their products in front of supermarket customers Woodall says "Really the supermarket is about real estate" Given that Kraft and Heinz dont compete head-to-head on many products most antitrust experts believe that this merger will be approved by the Federal Trade Commission Not that the agency has given them much reason to think otherwise in recent years "The FTC has rubber-stamped a tidal wave of mergers" Woodall says In the food sector alone Shuanghui LLCs (now WH Group) acquisition of Smithfield Foods and the Sysco/US Foods merger have raised eyebrows among both antitrust analysts and food advocates And so monopoly finds a seat at the dinner table This summers barbecues will feature Oscar Meyer hot dogs Boca burgers A1 steak sauce and Heinz ketchup except now the buffet of products will all be owned by the same company
