The Corner

Summer Reading

Summer is here, and with it the new summer issue of National Affairs. Among our offerings this time are a progress report on charter schools (by Chester Finn and Bruno Manno), some reflections on the perverse economic policies of the past 6 years (by Richard Epstein), a review of the under-appreciated Clintonian roots of Obamacare (by Scott Gottlieb), a call for conservative urban renewal (by Michael Hendrix and Andrew Evans), a four-essay symposium on energy and environmental policy, and lots more—from social security to upward mobility to disruptive innovation in health care. 

Perfect beach reading.
