Among liberals, income inequality has become “the defining issue of our time,” as President Barack Obama once put it. The fact that the top 1 percent of households now earns about a fifth of all income and controls a third of the country’s wealth is seen as glaring evidence that American-style capitalism has run off the […]

THE NEW TAX ATTACK ON OVERLY ELITE COLLEGE ENDOWMENTS HAS POTENTIAL MERIT – BUT THE LEGISLATION WOULD HURT STUDENTS, TOO.

Public and private universities enjoy enormous tax advantages equivalent to public charities based […]
