2017 Summer Honors Sessions


Week 1 Course Options

Course title: Democratic Capitalism: Principles & Practices

Instructor: Dr. Michael Strain

Dates: May 29 - June 2

Course description:
What are the principles that underlie our most controversial economic debates?  Why does the left tend to focus on income inequality, raising the minimum wage, and government intervention, while the right focuses on growth, taxes, and the private sector?  What are the inherent tradeoffs in each?

Through this course, students will come to understand these and many other aspects of domestic macroeconomic policy.  From Adam Smith, to John Maynard Keynes, to Friedrich Hayek, participants in this session will come away with a deeper understanding of the role of economic policy and a newfound respect for the complex decisions that policymakers must face.

Michael R. Strain is director of economic policy studies and a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. His research interests include labor economics, applied microeconomics, public finance, and social policy.

Dr. Strain's research has been published in peer-reviewed academic journals and in the policy journals Tax Notes and National Affairs. He also writes frequently for popular audiences. His essays and op-eds have been published by The New York Times, National Review, The Weekly Standard, The Atlantic, Forbes, Bloomberg View, and a variety of other outlets, and he is a regular contributor for The Washington Post. He is frequently interviewed by major media outlets and speaks often to a variety of audiences.

Before joining the American Enterprise Institute, Dr. Strain worked in the Center for Economic Studies at the US Census Bureau and in the macroeconomics research group at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. He is a graduate of Marquette University and holds an M.A. from New York University and a Ph.D. in economics from Cornell.

Course title: The Building Blocks of Human Flourishing

Instructor: Dr. Charles Murray

Dates: May 29 - June 2

Course description:
This course will take a critical look at contemporary culture and society, tracing their origins through decades of radical and incremental change, including an examination of the cultural differences between economic classes.

All readings are from the text In Pursuit: Of Happiness and Good Government (Liberty Fund, 2013). This book begins with Aristotle, ties in Locke, Maslow, and others, and connects first principles to contemporary challenges.

Day 1: The criterion problem in public policy analysis. What goods are we trying to maximize? Defining "happiness." Reading: Prologue and chapters 1 & 2.

Day 2:Enabling conditions and thresholds for the pursuit of happiness: Material resources, safety, self-respect. Reading: Chapters 3–6

Day 3: The nature of human enjoyment and the nature of the human as a social animal. Reading: Chapters 7–8.

Day 4: The dependent variable in program evaluation. Epistemic error. The unit of aggregation. Education as a case study. Reading: Chapters 9–11.

Day 5: Burke’s "little platoons." Concluding thoughts. Reading: Chapters 12–13.

Charles Murray is the W. H. Brady Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. A political scientist, author, and libertarian, he first came to national attention in 1984 with the publication of "Losing Ground," which has been credited as the intellectual foundation for the Welfare Reform Act of 1996. His 1994 New York Times bestseller "The Bell Curve" (Free Press, 1994), coauthored with the late Richard J. Herrnstein, sparked heated controversy for its analysis of the role of IQ in shaping America's class structure. Dr. Murray's other books include "What It Means to Be a Libertarian" (1997), "Human Accomplishment" (2003), "In Our Hands" (2006), "Real Education" (2008), and the New York Times bestseller "Coming Apart" (2012). His most recent book, "By the People: Rebuilding Liberty Without Permission" (Crown Forum, 2015) urges Americans to stem governmental overreach and use America's unique civil society to put government back in its place.

Dr. Murray has Ph.D. in political science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a B.A. in history from Harvard University.

Week 2 Course Options

Course title: Empire for Liberty: Strategy-making in America

Instructor: Thomas Donnelly

Dates: June 5 - June 9 

Course description:
The course will offer students an introduction to and interpretation of American "strategic culture," that is, the habitual ways and purposes that influence when and how the United States uses its military power.  Beginning with pre-Revolutionary British roots and charting the effects of the wars from independence in 1776 and 1812, the fulcrum of the course will be a day-long "staff ride" to Gettysburg, taking a role-play approach to understanding the causes, the conduct and the consequences of the war that ensured America would be "whole and free." Following an assessment of the post-World War II "world America made," the course will conclude with a student-led exercise to formulate a strategy for the 21st century.

Thomas Donnelly, a defense and security policy analyst, is the co-director of the Marilyn Ware Center for Security Studies at AEI. He is the coauthor with Frederick W. Kagan of Lessons for a Long War: How America Can Win on New Battlefields (2010). Among his recent books are Ground Truth: The Future of U.S. Land Power (2008), coauthored with Frederick W. Kagan; Of Men and Materiel: The Crisis in Military Resources (2007), coedited with Gary J. Schmitt; The Military We Need (2005); and Operation Iraqi Freedom: A Strategic Assessment (2004). From 1995 to 1999, he was policy group director and a professional staff member for the House Committee on Armed Services. Mr. Donnelly also served as a member of the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission. He is a former editor of Armed Forces Journal, Army Times, and Defense News.

Course title: Understanding the Middle East Challenge

Instructor: Dr. Michael Rubin

Dates: June 5 - June 9

Course description:
The Middle East is one of the most discussed, yet least understood regions of the world.  This course will allow participants to go beyond the headlines and come to know the people, groups, and ideologies that shape that contentious region.

Starting with the origins of Islam in Mecca and continuing to the present day, students will read primary and secondary sources that reveal the Middle East's unique history in a way that no college course can offer.

Michael Rubin is a former Pentagon official whose major research areas are the Middle East, Turkey, Iran and diplomacy. Rubin instructs senior military officers deploying to the Middle East and Afghanistan on regional politics, and teaches classes regarding Iran, terrorism, and Arab politics on board deploying U.S. aircraft carriers. Rubin has lived in post-revolution Iran, Yemen, both pre- and post-war Iraq, and spent time with the Taliban before 9/11. His newest book, Dancing with the Devil: The Perils of Engaging Rogue Regimes examines a half century of U.S. diplomacy with rogue regimes and terrorist groups.

Course title: War & Decision-Making

Instructor: Dr. Fred Kagan

From Syria, to Iraq, to Ukraine, and beyond, war and military action are in the headlines every day.  However, students rarely get the chance to study them in a classroom setting.

Frederick W. Kagan, author of the 2007 report Choosing Victory: A Plan for Success in Iraq, is one of the intellectual architects of the successful "surge" strategy in Iraq. He is the director of AEI's Critical Threats Project and a former professor of military history at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. His books range from Lessons for a Long War (AEI Press, 2010), coauthored with Thomas Donnelly, to the End of the Old Order: Napoleon and Europe, 1801-1805 (Da Capo, 2006).

Experience:
Associate Professor of Military History, 2001-2005; Assistant Professor of Military History, 1995-2001; U.S. Military Academy at West Point
