Publisher's Summary

Two years ago, I argued in these pages that America was suffering from political decay. The country’s constitutional system of checks and balances, combined with partisan polarization and the rise of well-financed interest groups, had combined to yield what I labeled “vetocracy,” a situation in which it was easier to stop government from doing things than it was to use government to promote the common good. Recurrent budgetary crises, stagnating bureaucracy, and a lack of policy innovation were the hall-marks of a political system in disarray.

"Israel and the Post-American Middle East" is from the July/August 2016 issue of Foreign Affairs.

Interesting take on the politics of today

Any additional comments?

It's an interesting short peace that I highly recommend listening too. It could have been a bit longer and deeper, but as it does its job and has got a couple of interesting perspectives I haven't considered before.
