by Terry Anderson, Wendy Purnellvia Defining Ideas

by Scott W. Atlas, Richard A. Epstein, Lee Ohanian, Lanhee J. Chen, Tom Churchvia PolicyEd
Thursday, August 15, 2019

Single-payer health care is when the government acts as the only payer of health care costs in the economy. Rather than individuals purchasing insurance for payment of medical expenses through their employer or on the open market, the federal government typically covers all such costs.

Thursday, August 15, 2019

What to make of the current battle over the politicization of the Federal Reserve? The past year has featured an unprecedented attack by President Trump on Fed leaders and their independence. Mr. Trump not only questioned the board governors’ judgment but even contemplated removing the chairman for the sin of not setting interest rates where the president wants them.

A Century Of Ideas: Changing The Education Debate

Tuesday, August 20, 2019
Hauck Auditorium, Stanford University

Hoover scholars have been heavily involved in far-reaching educational research, and their work provides surprisingly positive answers to thorny questions, such as whether scholarship has ever influenced the debate on educational policy; whether new policies are just about politics without regard to fact; and how to mitigate bad ideas by introducing good ideas through research and analysis.

Why Won't Progressives Embrace Trump?

by Bruce Thorntonvia Front Page Magazine
Thursday, August 15, 2019

Golda Meir is credited with saying, “Israel is the Jew among nations.” In the speeches of global leaders and the pronouncements of the UN–– the so-called global “community” that strains out the besieged, liberal-democratic Israel gnat while swallowing whole herds of murderous tyrannical camels–– this international form of anti-Semitism is blatantly obvious behind the thread-bare veil of “anti-Zionism.”

Deus Vincit

by Angelo M. Codevillavia Military History in the News
Friday, August 16, 2019

On August 6, 1682, the Ottoman Empire, at the height of its power, declared war on the Holy Roman Empire. Muslim domination of Europe extended from the Balkans northward through Hungary and reached into Poland. Westward, only Habsburg Vienna barred the way. Louis XIV, for his own reasons, preferred dealing with the Ottomans rather than with the Habsburgs. Were the Muslims to have been victorious, they might have ruled from the Mediterranean to the Baltic.

A Day That Should Live In Infamy

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Thursday, August 15, 2019

August 15, 2019 is the 48th anniversary of President Nixon’s announcement of a 90-day freeze on all wages and prices. What followed after 90 days were various phases that caused the controls to last into 1974. The worst effects of the price controls were in the oil and gasoline markets, where OPEC’s price increase in the fall of 1973, combined with binding price controls, led to shortages, lineups, rationing, occasional violence in lines, and, arguably, President Carter’s Rapid Deployment Force, which was later changed into U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM.) So August 15, 1971 is a day that should live in infamy.

The New York Times Is Truly Messed Up

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Friday, August 16, 2019

Although rightly rejected today, the Virginia-born Fitzhugh attained national prominence in the late antebellum period as one of the most widely read defenders of a slave-based economy. Charles Sumner called him a “leading writer among Slave-masters,” and his regular contributions to the pro-South magazine DeBow’s Review gained him a national readership in the 1850s.

A Tale Of Two Statues (The Struggle For Liberty In The Long Term)

quoting Thomas Sowellvia Ricochet
Thursday, August 15, 2019

Thomas Sowell has often stated that it would be nicer and easier if the left-wing/unconstrained vision of the world were true. Social welfare programs could make poor people not poor, peace would be easy to make through treaties and government wouldn’t be corrupt if only the right people ran it. Overall, I think that’s true. I’d like it if mankind were less corrupt and more competent, which is the basis of the unconstrained vision.

What Is Inequality?

quoting Michael Spencevia Project Syndicate
Thursday, August 15, 2019

Though debates about inequality have been building for years, distinctions between after- and before-tax income, wealth, opportunities, outcomes, and other metrics suggest that the issue is more complex than it seems. The question, then, is whether policymakers can make sense of a concern that means different things to different people.

China’s Achilles Heel

by Miles Maochun Yuvia Military History in the News
Wednesday, December 20, 2017

The best political commentary out of East Asia last week is the one published on December 15 by South Korea’s second largest newspaper, Dong-A Ilbo. The paper’s editors asked a question on the mind of the entire Korean nation after their president had been outrageously snubbed by the Chinese leadership during his four-day state visit to the communist country, and Korean reporters accompanying their president’s visit were savagely beaten by thuggish Chinese security guards: “China should reflect on this question: why is it that for such a big country, there is hardly any neighbor that can be described as China’s friend?”

Why Fordham's ESSA Outlook Is Sunnier Than Our Peers'

by Michael J. Petrilli, Brandon L. Wright via Thomas B. Fordham Institute
Wednesday, December 20, 2017

Earlier this month, Bellwether Education Partners and the Collaborative for Student Success released a report assessing states’ ESSA plans. As The 74 reported, their reviews found them “largely lackluster,” a judgment that, at first blush, seems to conflict with Fordham’s own generally positive review of all fifty-one ESSA accountability plans. But don’t rely on first blushes.
