This article from American Main Street asks whether police officers are racist and presents different perspectives on the issue. It cites a Pew Research Center survey that found that white police officers are more likely to believe that racism is no longer a problem in America than white civilians or black Americans.

However, the article also acknowledges that police brutality and racial bias are real and serious problems that need to be addressed. It concludes by calling for more dialogue and understanding between police and the public, as well as more accountability and transparency in law enforcement.

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.

“To highlight the risk of consultants, her current theme, Mazzucato goes back to the Apollo space programme, where Nasa’s director of procurement in the 1960s warned that the agency was at risk of being ‘captured by brochuremanship.’ In recent times, Covid has been a bonanza for consultants: the UK was paying Deloitte £1mn a day for its work on testing and contact tracing.”

Nixon’s enemies indulged in a retrospective moralization of Watergate, obfuscating the reality of the matter, says Christopher Caldwell. “There is not really any such thing as ‘investigative journalism.’ … It does not begin with a journalist hunting down a source. It begins with a disgruntled member of the power structure, eager to unload on his bureaucratic rivals.”
