The new summer issue of National Affairs is now online, with essays on subjects ranging from the Tea Parties to unemployment, executive secrecy, economic liberty in the courts, fiscal policy, the continuing health-care debate, and more. Among the offerings:
—Henry Olsen on the history of American populism
—Greg Mankiw on why the stimulus bill missed its mark
—Rea Hederman on what the unemployment rate actually means
—William Schambra on conservatives and community
—A package of essays (from Paul Howard, Stephen Parente, James Capretta, Tom Miller, and John Hood) on why Obamacare must be repealed, and what should be done in its place when it comes to pre-existing conditions, Medicaid, and other fronts.
And much more. 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, which makes for easier beach reading).
While you’re at our website, you should also have a look at our past issues, browse the complete archives of The Public Interest, and get to know 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 us all.
