The new spring issue of National Affairs is now online, with essays on a host of timely subjects from health care to housing to our fiscal nightmare, post-census redistricting, transportation, the war on terror, and more. Among the offerings:
–Donald Marron on why our debt and deficits matter, and how to dig out from under them
–Oliver Hart (of Harvard) and Luigi Zingales (of the University of Chicago) on a pro-market alternative to the Dodd and Obama banking reforms
–Avik Roy on health care and the profit motive
–Vincent Cannato on the housing policies that inflated and then burst the bubble
–Abigail Thernstrom on redistricting and the Voting Rights Act
–Tevi Troy on Bush, Obama, and the Intellectuals
And much more (including yours truly on capitalism.) Some are free to all on our site, some are available only to subscribers (and here is where you can subscribe — to also get the journal in print).
While you’re at our website, you should also take a look at our regular web feature, “Findings,” which offers a daily summary of academic studies on various subjects — from the serious to the surreal to the sublime. For the social-science nerd in all of us (well, most of us).
