Running out of other people's money

WashPost: "Clinton’s loss is one more nail in the coffin of center-left politics in the West."  "But in at least one critical sense, [Trump's election] couldn’t have been more European: Across the continent, parties of the center-left that have dominated politics for decades — and that have given Europe its reputation for generous social welfare systems — now find themselves beaten, divided and directionless. Hillary Clinton and the Democrats are just the latest members of a beleaguered club."
