"Wolpert asks some questions I believe remain inadequately answered by the other panelists. Early in the discussion he asks, 'What progress has philosophy made?', which he understands as, 'What has philosophy discovered?' These…"

Red Flags: Why Xi's China is in Jeopardy, with George Magnus

China's economy has grown exponentially over the last four decades, but George Magnus, former chief economist at UBS, sees four traps that could derail its continued rise: rising debt, the struggle to keep its currency stable, aging demographics, and the challenges of changing from a low-income economy to a complex middle-income one. Will Xi Jinping be open to reform? What could be the effects of lingering U.S.-China trade tensions?

Rischian Transactionalism

Transactionalism in U.S. foreign policy has a new proponent: James E. Risch, incoming chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

The Crack-Up: Prohibition, Immigration, & the Klan, with Lisa McGirr

Plus, they discuss the Eighteenth Amendment's connections to World War I and the rise of the modern American state.
