Morris Fiorina On Why Political Parties Have Polarized

by Morris P. Fiorinavia PolicyEd
Tuesday, April 16, 2019

As a result of ideological sorting, political parties are far more polarized today than they were before. Democrats have shed their conservative wing and Republicans have shed their liberal wing. Majority control of Congress continues to flip back and forth because each party is polarized, responds to their political base, and alienates moderates and independents in the middle.

Betsy Devos And Other Naysayers Are Wrong: Student Outcomes In The U.S. Have Improved Significantly In Recent Decades

by Michael J. Petrillivia EducationNext
Friday, June 14, 2019
Back in April, speaking in front of the Education Writers Association, Secretary DeVos said that decades of reform efforts and increased social spending, both inside and outside of schools, “hasn’t ultimately improved anything for any students, particularly not for the most vulnerable students.” It’s a standard refrain from DeVos, and many other reformers as well, when making the case that past efforts have failed and it’s time to try something different.

Martin Feldstein Was A Pillar Of American Economics

featuring Martin Feldsteinvia The Economist
Saturday, June 15, 2019

For a half-century Martin Feldstein was everywhere you looked in American economics. He was an astoundingly prolific columnist, sometimes churning out several a week, for several newspapers, on the big economic stories of the day. He was a fixture at conferences and seminars and the teacher, for two decades, of Harvard University’s introductory economics course. He served presidents of both parties. In short Mr Feldstein, who died on June 11th aged 79, was an American economic institution.

The Most Important Health Reform Of All

mentioning John H. Cochrane via Forbes
Thursday, June 13, 2019

Of all the things we might do to improve our health care system, the one reform that is more important than any other is almost never discussed. It is ignored by Republicans. By Democrats. By the experts. By the think tanks. And by just about everybody who has an opinion on health policy.

Civic Education To Save The Republic

by David Davenportvia Townhall
Tuesday, October 31, 2017

A recent report reminds us that if the future of the American republic is in question, doing a better job with civic education is the answer. The report for the “Democracy at a Crossroads National Summit” provides plenty of reasons for pessimism: people don’t trust their government, they don’t vote, they don’t take part in churches or other civic organizations like they used to.
