Thursday, April 4, 2019

In recent years, economics has become much more empirical and less theoretical. It is not just that empirical work is more valued than theoretical work. Some economists make the claim that they don’t need theory or that theory is a handicap. They claim to just listen to what the numbers have to say.

Will Newsom’s “Inspirational Framework” Include More Taxes And Regulations?

by Bill Whalenvia The Sacramento Bee
Friday, April 5, 2019

In the neighborhood of America’s blue states, California is more than keeping up with the Joneses. Three years ago, voters in America’s nation-state legalized recreational marijuana.

U.S. Armed Forces On The Border With Mexico? We Never Left.

by Ralph Petersvia Military History in the News
Wednesday, April 3, 2019

Yet, not only do the U.S. Armed Forces have a long history of serving on that border, they, in fact, never left it. Active U.S. Army installations, such as Fort Bliss near El Paso or Fort Huachuca in southern Arizona, serve as thriving testaments to an armed presence more than 170 years old: There is little new along the Rio Grande or under the Sonoran sun.

by Afshin Molavivia The Caravan
Thursday, April 4, 2019

The year 1993 is not normally seen as a geopolitically defining year. As Bill Clinton took the oath of office in Washington, the big geopolitical events of the past few years -- the fall of the Soviet Union, the first Gulf War, the rise of newly independent Eastern European states - continued to reverberate but the world, it seemed, had entered the post-Cold War peace dividend era and the American unipolar moment. Across Middle East capitals, there was no doubt who the great power was in the world. The United States had no rival.
