By Placing Profits Over Principles, The NBA Shows What It's Really Made Of

by Lee Ohanianvia California on Your Mind
Tuesday, October 15, 2019

Last week, Daryl Morey, the general manager of the NBA’s Houston Rockets, tweeted “Fight for Freedom. Stand with Hong Kong” in support of Hong Kong citizen protests against mainland China. These seemingly harmless seven words created a political firestorm within the world’s premier basketball league that shows that the NBA’s highly publicized and proud commitment to social justice, freedom, and equality is largely abandoned when such principles affect their bottom line.

Policy Uncertainty In Japan

by Elif C. Arbatli, Steven J. Davis, Arata Ito, Naoko Miakevia Becker Friedman Institute for Economics at the University of Chicago
Tuesday, October 15, 2019

In the aftermath of the Financial Crisis (2007-08) and the Great Recession (2007-09), households and firms faced lots of uncertainty, not only about when and how the economy would recover, but also confusion on whether and how the administration, Congress, and the Federal Reserve would react. For families considering the purchase of a new car or a move to another city for a job, and for businesses considering new hires or a plant expansion, this policy uncertainty meant that the prudent choice was often wait-and-see.

Fewer Children Left Behind: Lessons From The Dramatic Achievement Gains Of The 1990s And 2000s

by Michael J. Petrillivia Thomas B. Fordham Institute
Tuesday, October 15, 2019

Earlier this year, speaking in front of the Education Writers Association, Secretary Betsy 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. Even my friend Rick Hess, after acknowledging big gains in math achievement, has argued that “a fair assessment” of the past two decades of reform “would admit that there has been a lot of action, but not much in the way of demonstrated improvement.”

Tuesday, October 15, 2019

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences will award the 2019 Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences to Abhijit Banerjee and Esther Duflo of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Michael Kremer of Harvard “for their experimental approach to alleviating global poverty.” The award reveals a deepening fault line among economists about how best to fight poverty.

Fixing The Gig Economy Doesn’t Require Turning All Uber Drivers Into Employees

Monday, October 14, 2019

While new technologies have enabled new economic opportunities and labor arrangements, current laws largely treat employment as a binary between independent contractors and full-time employees. This limits employers who might otherwise want to offer some, but not all benefits; and unnecessarily restricts employees who need flexibility and the ability to set their own hours.

Jack Goldsmith - In Hoffa's Shadow: A Stepfather, A Disappearance In Detroit, And My Search For The Truth

mentioning Jack Goldsmithvia Politics and Prose
Tuesday, October 15, 2019

There have been many theories about the fate of Jimmy Hoffa, the longtime president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, since he disappeared in 1975. Many involve Charles “Chuckie” O’Brien, Hoffa’s aide and Goldsmith’s stepfather. In this compelling investigation-cum-memoir, Goldsmith, Henry L. Shattuck Professor of Law at Harvard University and author of Terror Presidency and Power and Constraint, recounts how his childhood affection for O’Brien became more complicated as he pursued a legal career. Then, with the perspective he gained from serving as assistant attorney general under George W. Bush, Goldsmith was moved to uncover the truth about O’Brien, Hoffa, the mob, the waning of labor’s power, and the rise of the surveillance state.
