‘Dream-Team’ Redux?

by Victor Davis Hansonvia National Review
Friday, December 6, 2019

There was a lot of pre-hearing hype about the Democrats’ supposedly stellar academic experts, sort of analogous to the giddiness about the “dream team,” “all-stars,” and “hunter-killer” legal eagles that Robert Mueller supposedly had assembled to pick apart the Trump carrion — and they likewise proved a complete dud.

Whom And What To Blame For Kamala Harris’ Collapse

by Bill Whalenvia Forbes
Thursday, December 5, 2019

I purposely waited a couple of days before opining on the demise of California Sen. Kamala Harris’ presidential campaign for two reasons: I wanted to see how she’d spin her failure; and I wanted to see what if any impact her decision had on the remainder of the presidential field.

Presidential Candidates Are Rarely Judged On Their Knowledge Of Foreign Policy

by Markos Kounalakisvia Miami Herald
Thursday, December 5, 2019

Presidential candidates are rarely judged on their knowledge of foreign policy. They’re often governors or from states where engagement in world affairs is limited to the trade promotion of state products or produce. They’re both salespeople and promoters of their states’ workers, goods and environment, pitching their local and regional corporate interests in global markets.

The Assault On Wealth

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Thursday, December 5, 2019

As noted above, I don’t accept that behind every fortune, or even most fortunes, is a great crime. Interestingly also, neither does the main economist who got the ball rolling on wealth taxes earlier this decade. The economist who, more than any other, made attacks on the wealthy more generally respected, is Frenchman Thomas Piketty.

Germany’s Crisis Has Been Averted. But At What Cost?

quoting Timothy Garton Ashvia The Washington Post
Friday, December 6, 2019

What a way to climb down. And how very German. Having promised revolution one week, Germany’s Social Democrats called it off the next, hoping that nobody would take much notice. As so often in contemporary German politics, rupture was averted for the sake of stability, open conflict exchanged for suppressed frustration, movement foregone for stasis.

Pakistan: Murderous Ally, Patient Enemy

by Ralph Petersvia Strategika
Thursday, April 26, 2018

Pakistan’s military and intelligence leadership—the country’s decisive elements—view the United States as a danger to be managed and a resource to be exploited. Its approach to bilateral relations is predicated on three things: The (correct) belief that U.S. interlocutors do not understand the region; the conviction that, eventually, the U.S. will leave Afghanistan; and Pakistan’s need for hegemony over Afghanistan—not only to check India’s strategic moves but, more importantly, to guarantee Pakistan’s internal cohesion.

The United States And Pakistan: Frenemies On The Brink

by Peter R. Mansoorvia Strategika
Thursday, April 26, 2018
For much of its short seventy-year history, Pakistan has managed to thoroughly mismanage its strategic relationships with great power patrons, regional competitors, and non-state clients. It has waged and lost four wars with a larger and more powerful India, supported terrorist organizations that have destabilized Afghanistan and conducted deadly attacks in neighboring India, and alienated its long-time American ally.

Keeping Health Insurance Affordable

by John F. Coganvia PolicyEd
Thursday, April 26, 2018

Preventing insurers from pricing premiums based on risk unintentionally increases costs for everyone else in the marketplace. When healthy people refuse to purchase health insurance due to higher costs, it causes insurers to raise prices even further, further disrupting those who are left in the market.
