IN BRIEF

Study Sees No Big Change in Health Care Spending

SEPTEMBER 09, 2010

“A new government study says President Obama‚Äôs health care law will have negligible effects on total national health spending in the next 10 years, neither slowing nor fueling the explosive growth of medical costs.” (New York Times)

The trick is assume future Medicare cuts and taxes on union health plans that Congress will never go for.

CURRENT ISSUE

April 2014

Around the world, people are struggling to throw off authoritarianism, with deeply mixed results. From Egypt to Venezuela, determined people build networks to overthrow their regimes, but as yet we have not learned to live without Leviathan. In this issue, Michael Malice and Gary Dudney discuss their glimpses inside totalitarian regimes, while Sarah Skwire and Michael Nolan look at how totalitarian regimes grind down the individual--and how individuals fight back.

The struggle for our lives and freedom is a struggle for beauty; it begins inside each of us.
