The Road to Renewal

R. Richard Geddes

The Road to Renewal by R. Richard GeddesDespite record levels of government spending, America's transportation system is plagued by traffic congestion, decaying infrastructure, and politicization of transportation funding-leading to calamities such as the 2007 collapse an interstate highway bridge over the Mississippi River and political fiascos like Alaska's infamous "Bridge to Nowhere." In The Road to Renewal, R. Richard Geddes surveys the current state of U.S. ground transportation and finds that, like the roads themselves, transportation policy is in desperate need of repair. A shift toward increased use of public-private partnerships...

Wealth and Justice

Peter Wehner

Wealth and Justice by Peter WehnerPopular opinion would have us believe that America's free market system is driven by greed and materialism, resulting in gross inequalities of wealth, destruction of the environment, and other social ills. Even proponents of capitalism often refer to thefree market as simply a "lesser evil" whose faults are preferable to those of social democracy or communism. But what if the conventional understanding of capitalism as corrupt and unprincipled is wrong? What if the free market economy actually reinforcesChristian values? In Wealth and Justice: The Morality of Democratic Capitalism, Arthur C....

Expanding Work Programs for Poor Men

Lawrence M. Mead

Expanding Work Programs for Poor Men by Lawrence M. MeadWelfare reform, which required that poor mothers work in return for assistance, was a watershed in the struggle against poverty for American families. As work levels rose dramatically among low-income women, the welfare rolls were cut in half and many families rose out of poverty. But men's employment is also crucial to uplifting families, and programs designed to encourage work among poor men are often poorly funded and little understood by policymakers. Expanding Work Programs for Poor Men makesthe case that poor fathers, like poor mothers, need "both help and hassle." That is, poor men need...

Safety, Liberty, and Islamist Terrorism

Gary J. Schmitt

Safety, Liberty, and Islamist Terrorism by Gary J. SchmittThe terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, produced a revolution in domestic security in the United States. The Bush administration responded quickly by aggressively enforcing existing laws, sponsoring new legislation, overhauling domestic intelligence,and employing the president's executive power in ways that drew criticism from civil libertarians on both the left and right. Many hoped that the succeeding administration would adopt a more "European" approach to domestic security-an approach typicallyunderstood to be more compatible with the rule of law and friendlier to civil liberties. But...

Lincoln at Two Hundred

Walter Berns

Lincoln at Two Hundred by Walter Berns"We say that a man can be known by the company he keeps. So I say that a nation, a people, can be known and be judged by its heroes, by whom it honors above all others." Abraham Lincoln was the greatest of our presidents. He saved the Union, and because he saved the Union, he was able to free the slaves. But he did more than this. Without him, we might have had no reason to celebrate the bicentennial first of the Declaration of Independence and then of the Constitution. It is therefore altogether fittingthat we mark the bicentennial of Lincoln's birth. Part of the Bradley Lecture Series. Lincoln...

The Declining Work and Welfare of People with Disabilities

Richard Burkhauser & Mary Daly

The Declining Work and Welfare of People with Disabilities by Richard Burkhauser & Mary Daly

The U.S. disability insurance system is an important part of the federal social safety net; it provides financial protection to working-age Americans who have illnesses, injuries, or conditions that render them unable to work as they did before becoming disabled or that prevent them from adjusting to other work. An examination of the workings of the system, however, raises deep concerns about...

Expanding Work Programs for Poor Men

Lawrence Mead

Expanding Work Programs for Poor Men by Lawrence MeadExpanding Work Programs for Poor Men makes the case that poor fathers, like poor mothers, need 'both help and hassle.' That is, poor men need more help from the government, but they must also be expected-and required-to help themselves. Drawing on welfare reform as a successful precedent, Lawrence M. Mead explores the psychology of male nonwork and evaluates the successes and failures of existing government programs for poor men, including child support and conditions of parole. These programs have succeeded in increasing work levels among poor men by requiring that they provide income to support...

High-Skilled Immigration in a Global Labor Market

Barry Chiswick

High-Skilled Immigration in a Global Labor Market by Barry ChiswickRecent U.S. immigration reform proposals have focused almost exclusively on regulating the population of low-skilled foreign workers. High-Skilled Immigration in a Global Labor Market contends that policymakers should focus more on attracting immigrants with exclusive skill sets-professional, technical, and managerial (PTM) workers. PTM workers positively impact the economy by expanding production capability, increasing the growth rate of total factor productivity, and enhancing international competitiveness. Barry R. Chiswick and his coauthors examine the policies established by other OECD...

Health and Wealth Disparities in the United States

Anupam Jena

Health and Wealth Disparities in the United States by Anupam JenaTraditional measures of economic disparities among Americans of different race, gender, geographic location, and education level consider only material well-being, so that making two groups economically "equal" is as simple as matching their monetary incomes. This narrow focus on income may not, however, lead to a complete understanding of economic well-being in the United States. Individual welfare is determined not only by the income available for consumption, but by the health and longevity of the individual. A wealthy individual who is bedridden may be worse off than a healthy person with...
