Many see Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren as two peas in the liberal Democratic pod. Battling to consolidate their overlapping constituencies, they might be called left (Warren) and lefter (Sanders). But a deeper look at an earlier time in history, specifically the Progressive Era and the New Deal, reveals real and important differences in the left back then that are at play in the Sanders vs. Warren battle today.
This paper addresses Janos Kornai’s early work on the socialist economy as summarized in his first book, Overcentralization in Economic Administration. In this context, I discuss the parallel research of the 1950s by American scholars, such as Joseph Berliner, David Granick, Gregory Grossman and Eugene Zaleski, who used similar methods and arrived at similar conclusions.
Senator Elizabeth Warren is famous for hurling at least one major plan against every policy issue and societal problem you ever heard of—or hadn’t. It’s true that a lot of them make my head ache, some of them turn my stomach, and practically none seem likely to get enacted during her lifetime, even were she to win the Oval Office.

U.S. Rep. Dan Newhouse will introduce legislation Monday to award former Defense Secretary James Mattis the Congressional Gold Medal. The award has previously been bestowed on George Washington, Ulysses S. Grant, Douglas MacArthur and Harry S Truman.
Jim Mattis made no bones about his feelings about being free from Washington, D.C. “I just flew back in from Washington, D.C., so I came here with mixed emotions, I’m so happy I could cry,” he told the hometown crowd shortly after getting a rousing ovation at the Three Rivers Convention Center on Tuesday. “Home is probably the best four-letter word in the English language.”
Former RBI governor Raghuram Rajan and Congress’s overseas unit chief Sam Pitroda have criticized the BJP government for proposing to make a nation based on "single idea (of Hindutva) and have also called for India to move away from authoritarianism and centralized control to strengthen its democracy.
Turkey is a "valuable but utterly untenable ally" that is "so disliked and so feared," a Hoover Institution senior fellow said Thursday, and President Donald Trump should "perhaps reconsider his own sometimes appeasing outreach" to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
