Please join AEI for a discussion with Joseph Sternberg and an expert panel on his new book, “The Theft of a Decade: How the Baby Boomers Stole the Millennials’ Economic Future” (Public Affairs, 2019).
As we commemorate Brown at 65, let us acknowledge victories won and opportunities lost. Lawyers, judges and educators remain essential stakeholders in this work. That was true in 1954, as it is in 2019. So are families, students — and a lot of regular people, too.
Panama’s inability to combat financial crimes places it in the center of the United States’ efforts to combat money laundering originating in the Maduro and Ortega dictatorships. Its newly-elected president, Laurentino Cortizo, offers fresh hope that the US can continue to freeze the coffers of these regimes.

AEI scholar and (AEI president-to-be) Robert Doar joins The Remnant to talk New York politics, how capitalism isn’t failing, “Seinfeld,” and more.
