America Off Balance

Are We Growing Too Slowly?

by Daniel Heilvia Budget Matters, America Off Balance
Monday, January 28, 2019

If we’re going to put fiscal policy on a more sustainable course, we first need to diagnose the cause of the projected future imbalance. We have three potential culprits: we’re not growing fast enough, we’re not taxing enough, or we’re spending too much.

Enhancing Economic Growth Through Immigration

by Edward Paul Lazearvia PolicyEd
Thursday, January 17, 2019

Immigration has always been a vital component of economic growth in the United States, and certain types of immigrants are more likely to start businesses than others. Younger, more educated immigrants are more likely to be entrepreneurial, as are immigrants who come from countries that haven’t traditionally sent many people to America. The United States could boost its economy if it rebalanced its immigration system to give them a preferred path for green cards.

by Terry Andersonvia PolicyEd
Wednesday, January 9, 2019

Most environmental problems result from the tragedy of the commons. The typical response to environmental issues is to turn to government regulation. In contrast, free market environmentalism embraces the lessons of markets by defining and enforcing property rights to prevent overconsumption or other negative outcomes.

Transformational Health Care Reform

by Scott W. Atlasvia PolicyEd
Tuesday, December 18, 2018

The American health care system is on an unsustainable path characterized by government-dominated insurance. Fixing health care begins with changing the incentives and empowering consumers to seek value with their money, while increasing competition among providers. Liberalized HSAs, insurance with lower premiums and fewer mandates, and more options for Medicare and Medicaid enrollees will improve access, choice, and quality of health care.

Educating Americans about Public Policy

The digital media revolution has transformed the way people obtain information and form opinions. Countless partisan outlets peddle assertions and “sound bites” as indisputable facts. Few people have the knowledge and analytical skills to navigate this torrent of misinformation. They crave credible and accessible sources of facts, analysis, and information about proposed policies and the effects of those already enacted.


The Hoover Institution

Since its founding nearly 100 years ago, Stanford University’s Hoover Institution has sought to promote economic opportunity and prosperity, secure peace, and improve the human condition. Unique among policy research organizations, Hoover is part of a world-renowned university. In addition to being scholars, our fellows are educators.

Seeking to become the foremost source of policy knowledge, wisdom, and insights, we have launched the Mary Jo and Dick Kovacevich Initiative at the Hoover Institution, Educating Americans in Public Policy. The initiative seeks to:

  • Equip Americans with accurate facts and information, as well as a discerning analytical perspective, so they can better perform their civic duties, hold their elected leaders accountable, and “secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.”
  • Provide political leaders with reliable knowledge and analysis—tools with which they might assess alternatives in the shaping and execution of public policy.

This effort will build on our legacy of substantive policy inquiry where partisan advocacy has become the norm.

 
The Hoover Institution acknowledges significant gifts in support of its Education Americans in Public Policy initiative from the following generous and committed family foundations and individuals:

    Mary Jo and Dick Kovacevich Family Foundation
