[OP-ED]: Trump’s stock boom -- illusion or reality?

 04/25/2017 - 10:10
Stock valuations are tricky. With hindsight, the market can stay above or below levels reflecting economic fundamentals for long stretches. Whatever the case today, stocks are nowhere near the absurd heights of the “tech bubble” at the turn of the century. EFE
English

The last thing President Trump now needs is for the stock market to go south on him. After all, he’s got worries aplenty: abroad, North Korea, Syria, Russia and Brexit; at home, the stalled effort to repeal Obamacare; and uncertainty surrounding “tax reform.” Compared with this tapestry of troubles, the stock market has been a splendid blessing.

[OP-ED]: ‘Sexual paranoia’ arrives on campus

 04/20/2017 - 08:21
Kipnis bends over backward to repeatedly and vehemently note that she is (a) a certified left-wing feminist and (b) absolute in her belief that women should be safe from harm on campus, at work and everywhere else.
English

If Laura Kipnis thought she was under fire in 2015 after writing an essay for The Chronicle of Higher Education criticizing an emergent “sexual paranoia” on college campuses, then her new book will surely catapult her into public-enemy No. 1 status in the eyes of legions of angry feminists.

[OP-ED]: Book focuses on why we need power -- and how to get it

 04/18/2017 - 08:30
Liu’s latest act of courage and belief is that he has written an important book on a topic -- power -- that Americans need to understand better. He has a message for us. And we’d be wise to listen.
English

At America’s core, you’ll find two competing beliefs about citizen power. On the one hand, Americans cherish the idea that one person can create social change. But there is also the sense that -- to quote Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders -- the game is rigged.
