On the 25th anniversary of the Reagan Administration’s report, A Nation at Risk, the Cato Institute invited EPI Research Associate Richard Rothstein to reflect on the legacy of this report. Rothstein’s essay is posted today (April 7) at the Cato Institute’s on-line magazine, Cato Unbound (http://cato-unbound.org). Over the next few days, Frederick Hess of the American Enterprise Institute, Sol Stern of the Manhattan Institute, and Michael Strong of the Flow Institute will respond, and then Rothstein, in turn, will address their responses. Beginning on April 16, the site will open to an on-line public discussion of this debate.

Trump’s budget tried to side-step taxes. Today’s Ways and Means hearing with Treasury Secretary Mnuchin should not.
