Promising Autonomy, China Has Turned Hong Kong into China
World | Monday, July 18, 2022

On January 1, 1997, Hong Kong, effectively seized by Great Britain in war a century before, reverted to Chinese rule. Only recently liberated from the madness of Mao Zedong's rule, Beijing promised to preserve Hong Kong's "separate system" for 50 years.

World | Monday, January 24, 2022

Give President Joe Biden credit for talking with Vladimir Putin over the latter’s demands for security guarantees.

The potential for conflict is growing.”

Expand Legal Immigration to Boost the Economy
Politics | Tuesday, August 10, 2021

A dearth of workers is slowing our recovery from the economic devastation wrought by COVID-19. Overly large unemployment insurance checks, an expanded welfare state and immigration restrictions have reduced the supply of willing workers. There are 9.2 million job openings nationwide and 9.3 million people unemployed. As a result, employers are hiking prices faster than wages and the economy is recovering at a slower pace than it should. Expanding legal immigration is one way to help.
