Does social media foster polarisation? A close look at the handle @realdonaldtrump

Extreme polarisation is not persistent over time; people are more likely to react to specific events or news, writes Maria Molina-Domene. Social media facilitates communication and an appealing question is whether citizens use it to endorse or criticize the government. I investigate individuals’ potential polarisation about President Trump, as reflected in his personal Twitter account. In this context, polarisation relates to expressing positive or negative judgements through social media.

Aberdeen’s slowdown shows the dangers of being a one-industry town

When we consider these findings in light of research published last July by Centre for Cities and the Centre for Economic Performance – which suggested that Aberdeen's economy would be hit harder than that of any other city by either a 'hard' or 'soft' Brexit – It all adds up to a worrying picture.

Londres acull un debat impossible a Madrid o Barcelona/London welcomes an impossible debate in Madrid or Barcelona

Scene of the meeting, the London School of Economics, in the center of the British capital, in the third session of a cycle of debates centered on the relationship between Catalonia and Spain. In London, not in Barcelona or in Madrid, as if sitting in the same table, the economics consultant Andreu Mas-Colell and prominent economists, colleagues Jordi Galí, Ángel de la Fuente, Ramon Marimon and Antonio Cabrales in one of the Two cities of the State were impossible. Almost a metaphor for the lack of dialogue not between the five academics present at the event, but between the leading Spanish class and the one that led the Process in Catalonia.
