Watch: The Conscience of a Compassionate Conservative

Bill Moyers | July 28, 2014 | Politics
Politicians in Washington, D.C., seem to have stopped talking -- and listening -- to their colleagues across the aisle, contributing to our virtually deadlocked Congress. While Washington appears to have stopped their conversations, I decided to start a new one.

The SEC Should Shine a Light on Dark Political Donations From Corporations

Sean McElwee | July 28, 2014 | Politics
Nate Silver has already dubbed the 2014 election as "the least important in years." But this year's midterms are still breaking records for at least one thing: Secret political spending.

The Increasing Irrelevance of Corporate Nationality

Robert Reich | July 28, 2014 | Business
Who's us? Who's them? Increasingly, corporate nationality is whatever a corporation decides it is. So instead of worrying about who's American and who's not, here's a better idea: Create incentives for any global company to do what we'd like it to do in the United States.

Germany Has the Most Unequal Distribution of Wealth in the Eurozone

Nicolas Berggruen | July 28, 2014 | World
Germany has the most unequal distribution of wealth in the eurozone. In this sense, Germany faces the same challenge as China: a high-export and saving economy which needs to rebalance through policies that create a greater flow of wealth to households, thus spurring greater consumption. This, in turn, can create demand for imports from Germany's European neighbors.

What's the Stink About Pink?

Jenny Darroch | July 28, 2014 | Business
When marketers use pink to signal their products are "female friendly" they fall squarely into the trap of stereotyping women as being feminine, kind and nice.

Times Have Changed For American Families. It's Time For Policies To Change, Too.

Judith Warner | July 28, 2014 | Parents
Our country has, at long last, matured into the ability to face, and even accept, today's changed social realities. But changed attitudes have not translated into changed policies. And families are paying the price.

Becoming Intentional About College Retention

Dr. Brian C. Mitchell | July 28, 2014 | College
Retention means something quite different depending upon the institution. At elite colleges, for example, retention rates below 85 percent in four years are a cause of concern.

The Gas Trap

Doug Struck | July 28, 2014 | Green
Natural gas is hailed as a "bridge" from the dirty fossil fuels of coal and oil, embraced as much better for our environment and much cheaper for consumers. But this is a fool's gold rush.

The Dawn of a New Political Narrative?

Philip K. Howard | July 28, 2014 | Politics
Perhaps this is the dawn of a new political narrative. The current fault lines don't get us anywhere, with Tea Party conservatives attacking the very idea of government, and liberals defending the virtuous aims of government without coming to grips with their pervasive semi-failures.

Life Balance: Include Time for Play

Sandy Smith | July 28, 2014 | Business
Stress is like a violin. If the strings are too loose we get no music. If they are too tight the strings will break. We must all find the right balance between work and our personal life.

Innovation Starts in Dark Places

Jeff DeGraff | July 28, 2014 | Business
Why does innovation often start in dark places? When you're working in the fringes, the normal risks and rewards associated with radical change suddenly become different: you have a lot less to lose, but you can also gain a lot more.

The Tradeoff Between Inflation and Unemployment: What We Don't Know Can Hurt Us

Jared Bernstein | July 28, 2014 | Business
To assert that economists are having trouble figuring out the relationship between inflation and unemployment is like saying chefs can't figure out what to do with salt and pepper. It's that fundamental. Yet, we're befuddled, and that has powerful policy implications.

7 Things Godzilla Can Teach us About Search Advertising

John Gagnon | July 28, 2014 | Small Business
Digital marketing can be overwhelming if you've never stepped onto that stage before. The same is true of Godzilla -- so huge! So unpredictable! So impossible to understand!

Inversions Should Pave the Way to Reform

Jerry Jasinowski | July 28, 2014 | Business
I believe the Democrats are right that we should curtail tax inversions and the Republicans are right that it should be part of an overall tax reform package. I understand the reluctance of the Dems to pursue this, but our tax system is a mess of special interest provisions that needs to be cleaned up.

Wishful Thinking About Natural Gas

Naomi Oreskes | July 28, 2014 | Green
Albert Einstein is rumored to have said that one cannot solve a problem with the same thinking that led to it. Yet this is precisely what we are now trying to do with climate change policy.
