Kumuda Simpson writes in The Conversation (9.11.16) about how the differences between the two US Presidential candidates on key policies are stark, suggesting in particular how the result will have major implications around the world.
'After a gruelling and often highly antagonist election, Americans will vote today for the next US President. There are several key policy areas that will require leadership that is thoughtful, creative and aimed at uniting a divided country. But it is not just domestic policy that will be shaped by the next president.
'Whether it is Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, the president will have a fundamental role in shaping global affairs for the foreseeable future. For this reason, it’s worth examining what is at stake for America and the world.
'... There is an awful lot riding on the outcome of this election, which is why millions around the world today will be watching with keen interest to see which way America votes.'
