Scientific American is the oldest continuously published monthly in the United States (it became monthly only in 1921), with 171 years of history. It includes among its authors the most important American scientists (including Albert Einstein). The October 2017 issue included a monograph with a provocative title, ‘Reason on the Ropes’. The issue analysed in just 10 pages how Western science was going into decline and, by contrast, how China was becoming stronger and stronger. The periodical highlighted two political tragedies—the election of Donald Trump and Brexit—that threaten science in the two most important research countries of the West: the United States and the United Kingdom.
