Historic advancements in home labor: Generational perspective on the growth of opportunity

BY VICTOR V. CLAAR MAY 1, 2022 I was born in 1965. Technically that makes me a Gen Xer, but barely. A year earlier and I’d be among the last of the baby boomers. Because I have lived a relatively long life, so far, I can understand what life looked like [...]

The Economist: A peninsula that makes waves in policy formation

Florida has a history as a policy laboratory It is best known as the home of “Florida Man”, infamous for oddball residents committing dubious deeds involving alligators and the like. Yet Florida has a record of creating policies that catch on elsewhere. An early example came in 1889, when it [...]

Reason: Bitcoin Won’t Help Russia Bypass World Sanctions

Cryptocurrencies are not the threat to U.S. financial power the elites want to present. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, that crusader against big banks, is no fan of bitcoin.

News Press: Guest opinion: It may feel like the 1970s, but let’s not bring back 1970s economic policies

There’s a lot about politics, economics and culture that seems eerily reminiscent of the 1970s right now. For starters, ABBA has a new album. We’re, again, playing foreign-policy chess with Russia. In the ‘70s,  Russia — then the Soviet Union — invaded Afghanistan, leading to a U.S. boycott of the [...]

Bob Rommel, Sal Nuzzo: Schooling teachers’ unions on workplace freedom

For some union leaders, however, the prospect of change is jarring. Florida has a consistent and laudable record of protecting public employees from union coercion.
