Is It All About Networking?

featuring Niall Fergusonvia LawFare
Thursday, February 15, 2018

These days, everyone seems to meet online. People looking for dating partners now rely on specialized websites, along with people looking for explanations of arcane questions, people looking for angry confirmation of their own darkest suspicions—and people seeking advice about how to make a bomb and why they should set it off. Doesn’t our world now turn on cyber connections of one sort or another?

Make College Degrees Valuable Again

quoting Caroline M. Hoxbyvia Washington Examiner
Thursday, February 15, 2018

Winter brings closure to millions of high school students filling out college applications. To the best of their ability, they have cemented their steps toward a brighter future. Meanwhile, newspapers will fill those students with the anxiety that college is becoming a Fort Knox, locking the non-worthy out of a sanctuary.

Inflation And Stocks Are Both Up, And That’s Stirring Some Worries

quoting Martin Feldsteinvia The New York Times
Thursday, February 15, 2018

Two weeks ago, fears of higher-than-expected inflation and interest rates sent stocks into a historic and nerve-rattling plunge. This week, those fears were borne out: Consumer prices rose more than expected in January, and interest rates jumped.

Diversity Does Not End At Race

quoting Thomas Sowellvia Northwest Missourian
Thursday, February 15, 2018

“Diversity is our strength,” is a mantra heard time and time again from the mouths of lawmakers, academics, pundits and the like. It has become so cliché that it has almost lost its meaning in the minds of most people. What exactly is it that is meant by “diversity?”

Real Target Of Erdogan's Olive Branch Could Be US Clout

quoting Fabrice Balanche via Al-Monitor
Thursday, February 15, 2018

As Turkey’s offensive against Syrian Kurdish forces in Afrin grinds on for a third week, the prevailing wisdom is that NATO’s second-largest army is getting bogged down. Critics point to the number of Turks killed in combat — at least 31 in 26 days — the swelling pile of disabled helicopters and tanks and the slow pace of Turkish advances into the hilly enclave. A veteran Kurdish politician went so far as to suggest that Afrin would become Turkey’s “Vietnam.”

Where We Are Now

quoting Victor Davis Hansonvia Powerline
Saturday, February 10, 2018

Collusion hysteria has bedeviled the Trump administration since day 1, precisely as intended. It has brought us the Special Counsel to provide the predicate for the removal of Trump from office. It has produced absurdity upon absurdity delivered by such artists of the calculated lie and the straight face as Adam Schiff. All the while, the mainstream media have made themselves instrumental to the production by serving as the faithful public relations adjunct of the Democratic Party. They are part of the scandal.

And we should be very wary of assuming that our civilization, the civilization of the early 21st century West, will oblige us by declining gradually.” That warning from noted historian Niall Ferguson is the opening and the theme of the vital new documentary The Fight of Our Lives: Defeating the Ideological War Against the West from filmmaker Gloria Z. Greenfield.

Narrowing The Gifted Gap For Disadvantaged Students

by Chester E. Finn Jr., Amber M. Northernvia EducationNext
Friday, February 9, 2018

The United States wastes an enormous amount of its human capital by failing to cultivate the innate talents of many of its young people, particularly high-ability girls and boys from disadvantaged and minority backgrounds. That failure exacts a great cost from the nation’s economy, widens painful gaps in income, frustrates efforts to spur upward mobility, contributes to civic decay and political division, and worsens the inequalities that plague so many elements of our society.

Oxfam Or Oxgov?

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Friday, February 9, 2018

There are two ways to close the gap [between rich and poor]. The first is to concentrate on making the poor better off. Mostly that has happened, thanks to liberalized international trade and reduced costs for shipping goods. Just as Walmart and Amazon have cut costs for Americans, the introduction of container shipping crushed transportation costs for the world.
