▪︎With the economy allegedly opening up again, there allegedly are jobs aplenty, say labor market experts.
So, where are the people who should be applying for these jobs?
 
▪︎Is the Biden-Harris tag team beginning to show signs of trouble and strain between them and their advisers? 
 
▪︎Donald Trump was U.S president from 2017 until his reelection defeat this year. Benjamin Netanyahu was the ninth prime minister of Israel from 1996 to 1999, and won office again, serving from 2009 until his ouster last week.
The two have followed a similar political path. 
Trump, arguing the Democrats were weak and that Republicans needed strong leadership, wrested control of the GOP and revitalized the party. In Israel, Netanyahu took an even harder line against enemies and on military readiness.
Now that neither Trump nor Netanyahu is in office, is it likely that they will work together to form a new axis of power in both the East and the West?
