with John H. Cochrane, Niall Ferguson, H. R. McMaster, Bill Whalenvia GoodFellows: Conversations From The Hoover Institution
Wednesday, October 21, 2020

This week’s antitrust lawsuit against Google poses a pertinent question at the intersection of Big Tech and free speech: from rewriting statutes to dismantling market giants such as Amazon and Facebook, what actions is the federal government willing to take to ensure the interests of Americans? Hoover Senior Fellows Niall Ferguson, H. R. McMaster, and John Cochrane weigh the latest salvo in the ongoing hostilities between Washington and Silicon Valley.

Trump-Biden Redux: Proud As A Peacock?

Wednesday, October 21, 2020

Befitting a state that once sent a pair of outsiders to Washington roughly a couple of centuries ago (Andrew Jackson and Davy Crockett), and where Elvis Presley took his last breath (or so we think), Tennessee is the home to the second and final debate between President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden.

How Charter Supporters Can Win Over Joe Biden

by Michael J. Petrillivia Flypaper (Fordham Education Blog)
Thursday, October 22, 2020

On paper, it seems like Joe Biden would champion the cause of expanding high-quality charter schools. He’s a longtime centrist Democrat, and centrist Democrats usually love charter schools, going back to Bill Clinton. He was Barack Obama’s vice president, and Obama has long loved charter schools. Biden was brought back from political near-death thanks to the support of Black voters, and Black voters love charter schools.

Could An Ancient Greek Have Predicted A US-China Conflict?

quoting Elizabeth Economyvia BBC
Monday, March 25, 2019

Not so long ago, China's rise was seen as essentially benign. A growing economy, it was thought, would go hand-in-hand with a liberalising political system. China was, to use the phrase favoured by US experts, becoming a responsible global stakeholder.

Nuclear Power: The Clean Energy Everyone Overlooks

by Admiral James O. Ellis Jr.via PolicyEd
Monday, March 25, 2019

As the world continues to shift toward low-carbon energy sources, a closer look makes it clear that nuclear power has to be included in order to reduce carbon emissions. Until the problem of long-term power storage is solved, nuclear will remain the only zero carbon base load power source. Given how clean and reliable it is compared to its alternatives, it is far too early to take nuclear power off the table.

Truly Taking Back Control

by Raghuram Rajanvia Project Syndicate
Monday, March 25, 2019

When people are more able to shape their own futures, they are less likely to be convinced that others are to blame for their plight. To the extent that it weakens support for virulent nationalism, devolution of global governance to national and local communities may make the world a little more prosperous – and a lot safer.

Chart of the Day I (above) has been featured before on CD and is worth a re-post. It shows that America’s middle class is disappearing but it’s because they are moving into higher income groups not moving into lower income groups. Between 1969 and 2017, the share of US households making $100,000 or more (in constant 2017 dollars) has more than tripled from 9% to 29.2%, while the share of households making $35,000 to $100,000 decreased from 53.8% to 41.3%.

The Ironies Of Mueller’s Endgame

by Adam J. Whitevia Commentary
Monday, March 25, 2019

For nearly two years, President Trump’s critics placed immense weight on Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation of allegations that Candidate Trump colluded with Russia before the 2016 election, and that President Trump obstructed justice after his 2017 inauguration. So, in the immediate aftermath of Mueller’s investigation and Attorney General Barr’s brief summary to Congress, it is more than a little ironic to find President Trump’s critics now downplaying Mueller’s conclusions that there is no evidence that Trump colluded, and insufficient evidence that Trump obstructed justice.
