I suppose we can swap out "American" for "International" politics.
Great article - what's life like at Barcelona post-Messi? We'll soon find out Real Madrid how the club manages revenue with Ronaldo now in Italy. The post-Messi era for Barcelona will be so much more difficult.
I've been shopping this article around at the office.
This geo-political climate is turning out some amazing articles and authors.

I'm not sure there's another city in the world that depends so heavily on its tunnels, trains and bridges as New York. London, maybe?
When we were living in NYC, it was the focus of nearly every conversation. The bridge and tunnel crowd. Chris Christie's bridgegate scandal. The Triborough Bridge being renamed to the RFK bridge. The 2nd Avenue subway line.
We left the city in 2016 and having utterly depending on the subways to get around, I can't imagine living there now. This article doesn't make it seem like it will be getting any better any time soon. Fingers crossed for the new guy.
(We were there a few weeks ago and while subway service is impaired for rail work during the weekends, nearly every single line was suspended.)
We recently took a trip back to New York City, mainly to watch World Cup matches in country-friendly locations. In between games, we did nearly 40 miles of walking through the streets and parks of New York, along with the occasional subway and taxi ride.
