‘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.

Black Friday And American Soft Power

Why do Europeans resent America, even as they continue to copy it? Never mind Donald Trump. The United States is the steamroller of modernity that invents stuff, ideas, and images the world cannot resist.

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.

A ‘Lost Decade’ For Academic Progress? NAEP Scores Remain Flat Amid Signs Of A Widening Gap Between Highest And Lowest Performers

quoting Michael J. Petrillivia The 74 Million
Tuesday, April 10, 2018

Test scores released Tuesday for the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) continued a decade-long trend of stasis, with small improvements measured only for performance in eighth-grade reading. While states with disparate academic approaches have made some strides over the past few years — notably Florida and California — national averages have varied only slightly, despite billions of dollars invested to improve performance at the national, state, and local levels.

Why It's Time To Regulate Social Media

quoting Victor Davis Hansonvia WBUR
Tuesday, April 10, 2018

Once upon a time, rapacious robber barons prowled the land, gobbling up competitors, monopolizing markets, and wielding enormous influence (sometimes through influence peddling) over government. Gingerly at first and then full-bore, Americans decided enough was enough and empowered Washington to regulate big business.

NAEP 2017: America's "Lost Decade" Of Educational Progress

by Michael J. Petrillivia Flypaper (Fordham Education Blog)
Tuesday, April 10, 2018

As feared, the new results from the National Assessment of Educational Progress show that national trends are mostly flat. Coming on the heels of some modest declines in 2015, the 2017 scores amount to more bleak news. It’s now been almost a decade since we’ve seen strong growth in either reading or math, with the slight exception of eighth grade reading. There’s no way to sugarcoat these scores; they are extremely disappointing.

Five Catastrophic Decisions

by Victor Davis Hansonvia The Corner (National Review Online)
Tuesday, April 10, 2018

1) The Obama administration’s invitation to Vladimir Putin to come into Syria ostensibly to stop the use of weapons of mass destruction. The latter did not happen, but after an over 40-year Russian hiatus in the Middle East, Putin has recalibrated the region, and Russia will be far harder to expel than it was to invite in. John Kerry did not get rid of WMD; he ensured that he got more of it.

The Downsides Of Bombing Syria

Latest NAEP Results: Obama Administration Fails U. S. Students

by Paul E. Petersonvia Education Next
Tuesday, April 10, 2018

D minus. That’s the generous grade to give the Obama Administration—based on student test performances in math and reading over the eight years it held office (2009-2017). Its final grade became apparent just this week when the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), the official report card for U. S. schools nationwide, released the 2017 results.
