Help–Military Chic

I noticed a pop-up ad the other day selling the Desert Hats our guys wear in Iraq. In the NYPost today there’s a picture of Sex & the City star Kim Cattrall wearing one of those hats. The clothes shop across the street from me that features the latest women’s urban-wear (and that hitherto hasn’t been associated with patriotic themes) is selling camouflage U.S. Army T-shirts. I’ve walked by stores in the city with camouflage jeans and belts in their windows. My keen fashion sense tells me: This must be a trend. If you’ve noticed similar things, or if–more importantly–you know anyone who follows fashion who I could talk to about this, I’d love to hear from you.

Even critics have had to concede that Trump’s bellicose rhetoric since last summer regarding the North ... Read More

Trade Misunderstandings

I was distracted by other policy topics last week but not enough not to notice Peter Navarro’s article in the Wall Street Journal, headlined “China’s Faux Comparative Advantage.” Considering Navarro’s position in the White House, it is unfortunate that it demonstrates some serious misunderstandings ...
