AEI Director of Education Policy Studies Rick Hess discusses GOP candidates and their criticism of the Common Core.
India reported slowing GDP growth for the last quarter. While the new numbers mean little for the economy, they may push policy-makers closer to realizing that only difficult reform will enable prosperity.
The concerns GOP presidential candidates are airing on the Common Core are legitimate and relevant.
President Obama’s retreat from the Middle East is part of the larger pattern. Europe’s illegal immigration problem is our problem as well.
Presidential candidates should be using this campaign to detail their policy proposals for helping the poor.
The vast majority of illegal immigrants would voluntarily cooperate with Trump’s plan. Sorry, Hillary Clinton, no “boxcars” necessary.
The absence of a clear policy from the Fed has left investors unsure about the market.
Joe Biden grapples with decision whether or not to make a presidential run as political outsiders dominate Republican polls. Eventually, would Cruz be able to capitalize on a Trump failure?
If you think about 1980s supply-side economics as low taxes, tight money, and free trade, certainly the first two seem like they are still core GOP issues. Yet there is growing interest in issues such that are not part of the traditional supply-side portfolio, such as higher education and healthcare. Which is great.
Many congressional members simply do not know what they can do with the power the people of this country gave them.
