Watch a panel discussion recorded on March 26th featuring Hoover senior fellows Condoleezza Rice, Niall Ferguson and Stephen Krasner discussing democracy and American foreign policy over the past century.
For politicians, it is tough to think beyond the next news cycle—let alone beyond the next election. Unfortunately, this way of thinking dictates how we spend. Budget debates are focused on the next year while long-term considerations go undiscussed.
The Fourth Industrial Revolution—the fusion of digital technologies, characterized by big data, artificial intelligence, robotics, smartphones, and autonomous vehicles—will affect how people work, communicate, and travel. Hoover IP² has organized a conference, “Institutions and Regulation for the Fourth Industrial Revolution,” that addresses a core public policy question: What institutions, policies, rules, and regulations will maximize individual benefits and economic surplus as the Fourth Industrial Revolution takes root?
The Trump dossier — compiled by Christopher Steele, commissioned by Fusion GPS and paid for by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee — has tied up U.S. politics for more than two years with its accusation that an elected U.S. president colluded with Russia.
In finance, “going short” is a way to make money on stocks that lose value. Nassim Taleb, the author of The Black Swan, reportedly used this tactic to make millions during financial crises. He did not know exactly when or why the markets would crash, but he knew they eventually would. Then he cashed in. In many ways, going short is the opposite of traditional investment. In traditional investments one bets on success. In going short, one bets on failure. For over a decade, the United States has been trying to find a way to declare victory in the Middle East so that it can leave.
Hoover Institution fellow Victor Davis Hanson discusses The Bulwark, John McCain, George Bush, Bill Kristol, Mueller report, Deep State, China, Israel, antisemitism, journalism, white privilege, the Democrats, “new demography,” New Zealand, reparations, and his latest book The Case For Trump.
Hoover Institution fellow Thomas Sowell notes that he has not seen "hard evidence" that President Trump is a racist. Sowell also commented on the fascination young people have with socialism. He said people "no longer look at the facts" yet are cheering on Bernie Sanders and his policies.
Hoover Institution fellow Raghuram Rajan discusses the need to improve the capacity of the government, increase the economic growth potential, the need for next generation reforms, and the practicality of the minimum universal income.
Hoover Institution fellow Charles Plosser discusses the Fed’s dovish tilt, his theory on real business cycles, whether rate cuts can be a policy mistake, modern monetary theory, ECB monetary policy, and negative interest rates.
Today even if you have a high-school degree you don't get a job. We have great jobs for people leaving premier institutions like IIMs, etc, but that is not the case for a majority of students leaving schools and colleges which are not of that level of repute.
That Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., doesn't know much about DNA testing or Cherokee heritage is well known. But then that's fine, she's not in the running to be leader of that nation, but of this one, which is where her lack of accurate information becomes more troubling. She is famously trying to break up Big Tech as that's a part and a sign of the increasing concentration of the economy.
A damning new study dispels the myth that more money is the cure for education's failures. The report took a comprehensive look at 50 years of testing data and found that even after spending hundreds of billions of dollars, the opportunity gap among students remains as wide as ever.
