Spring Reading

by Yuval Levin

Spring is upon us at last, and with it is the new spring issue of National Affairs. Among the offerings:
-Jim Manzi on how to revive American innovation
-Ron Haskins on whether government can encourage marriage
-Judah Bellin on reforming student loans
-Gabriel Schoenfeld on the trouble with shield laws
-Ilan Wurman on originalism and the founders
-Diana Schaub on the Gettysburg Address
And more, including an essay on the perverse effects of the home-mortgage deduction (highlighted in today’s Wall Street Journal) and one on why the federal government has so much trouble replicating local policy successes. 

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).
