The new winter issue of National Affairs is now online, with lots of great essays to make you think during your Christmas break. Among the offerings in this issue:
– Jim Manzi on the challenge of balancing economic dynamism and social cohesion
– Bob Stein on pro-family tax reform
– James Q. Wilson on the future of blame
– Nicole Gelinas on how to fix financial regulation
– Diana Schaub on baseball and the American character
And many more. Some are free to all on our site, some are available only to subscribers — who of course also get the journal in print, which makes for easier vacation reading. Here’s where you can subscribe (and a subscription makes a great gift, too).
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.
