Obama’s historic win in the USA elections is dominating the news this week so we couldn’t ignore it, even though politics is not normally part of what we are trying to do at PocketCultures.

The outcome of this election will have an impact on the lives of people all over the world, not just in the USA, and many news sources have written articles on reactions of different countries to the result.

The most comprehensive I have seen is this collection from the Financial Times, with pieces written by the FT’s correspondents in 23 different countries.

NB they might make you register (free of charge) if you want to read them all.
