The article presents the author's opinion regarding exporting the U.S.'s presidential separation of powers to other countries. The author mentions the reasons why it is ill-advised to export the presidential separation of powers which include that the assumption of a one-size-fits-all solution to governance is ill-founded, and the unavailability of evidence that supports the claim that this separation of powers should be exported to other countries.
