Are Cops “Systemically Racist”—and Is America?
This article from American Main Street asks whether police officers are racist and presents different perspectives on the issue.

It concludes by calling for more dialogue and understanding between police and the public, as well as more accountability and transparency in law enforcement.

Restoring American Manufacturing: A Practical Guide
Summary: Officially, the United States has no industrial policy. But in practice, it has had one in place for decades that has shrunk America’s manufacturing sector and blunted its technological edge: Tax and regulatory policies that discourage capital-intensive investment, subsidies for white-collar professionals rather than skilled workers, and shrinking support for the basic scientific research that sustains productivity. As a result, the US depends on China and other countries for strategic goods, and runs chronic deficits that have swollen our obligations to foreigners. All nations have industrial policies, and America need one that fosters industry rather than stifles it.
