Social Policy: Crash Course Government and Politics #49
 
08:54
Today, Craig is going to talk about social policy - in the United States this means achieving one of three goals: protecting Americans from risk, promoting equal opportunity, or assisting the poor. Many Americans strongly believe in individualism, that is self-reliance, but since the Great Depression and the New Deal the government’s role has increased significantly. We’re going to focus on two social policies that came out of the New Deal - Social Security and what we tend to think of as “welfare” - and talk about why they’re still around now and potentially the future. These and other social policies are not without controversy, as things tend to be when involving our tax dollars, and we’re going to talk about that too.

Public Opinion: Crash Course Government and Politics #33
 
09:50
So today, Craig is finally going to start talking about politics. Now up until this point we've specifically been looking at government - that is answering the questions of who, what, and how in relation to policies. But politics is different in that it looks at why certain policies are made. We're going to start today by looking at public opinion - specifically how the public does (and does not) influence our elected officials.

Hon. Michael Lee: Article I Reform and the Global Trade Accountability Act [Restoring Article I]
 
38:00
Under the Constitution, the legislative branch possesses full authority over trade policy. Congress, however, has delegated much of this power to regulate trade to the executive branch, creating a number of serious issues, from trade wars to favoritism to economic depression. What can Congress do to counteract the consequences of their abdication? Mike Lee discusses the history of Congress' trade powers, suggesting a procedural solution to restore the balance of powers intended by the Founders.

Funding the Government: The Budget Process and Omnibus Spending Bills [Article I Initiative]
 
01:15:32
Each year, the U.S. Congress is responsible for developing a federal budget and must pass 12 bills to appropriate the next year’s discretionary federal spending. These bills reflect the priorities of the Members and the Congressional budget process is intended to allow for separate inspection and approval of proposed expenditures. For the first two hundred years of our nation’s history, nearly every federal budget was proposed, considered and accepted in this fashion. However, since the late 1970s, the Congress has frequently forgone the traditional budgeting procedure and chosen to utilize omnibus spending bills. Omnibus packages offer members of Congress an expedited voting process, combining what is ostensibly all 12 appropriations bills into one decision presented to the whole. This methodology saves the Legislative Branch a great deal of time. Some contend that the resulting bills are too long and virtually no Congressional office can give them proper attention before a vote. Others contend that the density of omnibus spending bills create a public smokescreen, burying controversial measures, avoiding scrutiny, and tacking on wasteful appropriations intended to favor specific constituents or special-interest groups. Further arguments highlight the structural weaknesses that occur when spending decisions are separated from the committees that are charged to provide oversight. Join the Federalist Society’s Article I Initiative as our panel deliberates this important contemporary topic. Does the current appropriations process and eventual omnibus legislation improve how our Congress functions or weaken it? Does the apparent efficiency come at the expense of proper deliberation and scrutiny?

Senate Reform Proposals [Restoring Article I]
 
01:09:55
As the upper chamber of Congress, the Senate functions as a check on the legislative process. Many have complained, however, that the Senate is obstructionist, anti-majoritarian, and overly partisan. Is the Senate broken? Or is it operating as intended by the framers of the Constitution? Daniel Flores, Christopher DeMuth, Matt Glassman, and James Wallner discuss their views on Senate reform. Featuring: -Moderator: Daniel Flores, Chief Counsel, Subcommittee on Regulatory Reform, Commercial and Antitrust Law for the Committee on the Judiciary, U.S. House of Representatives -Christopher DeMuth, Distinguished Fellow, Hudson Institute -Matt Glassman, Senior Fellow, Government Affairs Institute at Georgetown University -James Wallner, Senior Fellow, R Street Institute As always, the Federalist Society takes no position on particular legal or public policy issues; all expressions of opinion are those of the speakers.

Putting the “Public” in Public Institutions | Andy Haldane | TEDxGlasgow
 
16:01
Public institutions, such as the Bank of England, were created by the public for the public. Yet public trust in, and understanding of, these public institutions has been eroded, including by the financial crisis. How are these deficits of trust and understanding among the public to be closed and the legitimacy of public institutions thereby restored? One option is to give the public direct democratic control of public policy decisions, through referenda. That would come at a heavy cost. An alternative, Andy Haldane argues, is to put place a “deliberative democratic” process – an ongoing, two-way engagement between public institutions and the public they serve. This would involve convening and consulting the general public on a systematic, regional basis – for example, through Citizens’ Panels – on the economy and economic policy. These panels would be a means of harnessing the wisdom of crowds, of harvesting people’s lived experiences, to improve the setting of policy and the legitimacy of the public institutions setting it. For the first time in its 324-year history, the Bank of England is about to do just that. Andrew G Haldane is the Chief Economist at the Bank of England. He is also Executive Director, Monetary Analysis, Research and Statistics. He is a member of the Bank’s Monetary Policy Committee. He also has responsibility for research and statistics across the Bank. Andrew has an Honorary Doctorate from the Open University, is Honorary Professor at University of Nottingham, a Visiting Fellow at Nuffield College, Oxford, a member of Economic Council of Royal Economic Society, a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences, and Member of Research and Policy Committee at NESTA. Andrew is the founder and Trustee of ‘Pro Bono Economics’, a charity which brokers economists into charitable projects and a Trustee of National Numeracy. Andrew has written extensively on domestic and international monetary and financial policy issues and has published over 150 articles and four books. In 2014, TIME magazine named him one of the 100 most influential people in the world.

How America's public schools keep kids in poverty | Kandice Sumner
 
13:51
Why should a good education be exclusive to rich kids? Schools in low-income neighborhoods across the US, specifically in communities of color, lack resources that are standard at wealthier schools -- things like musical instruments, new books, healthy school lunches and soccer fields -- and this has a real impact on the potential of students. Kandice Sumner sees the disparity every day in her classroom in Boston. In this inspiring talk, she asks us to face facts -- and change them.

Antitrust & Big Tech
 
12:55
A conversation about the history of antitrust law, the consumer welfare standard, and the tech giants. Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix, and Google provide extremely valuable products and services, but their size, market share, and other concerns such as user privacy have led to concerns that they are wielding too much power. Proponents of “populist” or “hipster” antitrust advocate for limiting the size of firms. This would require changing the Consumer Welfare Standard, which has been in place since the 1970’s. Mark Zuckerburg’s testimony before Congress in April 2018 ignited a public debate about whether and how tech companies should be regulated. That debate continues and shows no signs of resolution. Is it time to revisit the standards used in antitrust law?

Separation of Powers and Checks and Balances: Crash Course Government and Politics #3
 
08:31
In which Craig Benzine teaches you about the US Governments Separation of powers and the system of checks and balances. In theory, the Legislative Branch, the Executive Branch, and the Judicial Brach are designed to keep each other in check, and to keep any branch from becoming too powerful. In reality, the system was designed to keep the president from becoming some kind of autocrat. For the most part, it has worked. Craig will call in the clones to explain which powers belong to which branches, and to reveal some secret perks that the Supreme Court justices enjoy.

SECRETARY GEORGE SHULTZ: THINKING ABOUT THE FUTURE
 
01:08:25
In a rich and varied career that has included roles as U.S. secretary of state, secretary of the treasury and secretary of labor, George P. Shultz has aided presidents, confronted national and international crises, and argued passionately that the United States has a vital stake in promoting democratic values and institutions. In speeches, articles, congressional testimony and conversations with world leaders, he has helped shape policy and public opinion on topics such as technology, terrorism, drugs and climate change. The result is a body of work that has influenced the decisions of nations and leaders and impacted the lives of ordinary people. In his newest book, Thinking About the Future, Secretary Shultz has collected and revisited key writings, applying his past thinking to America’s most pressing contemporary problems. In the more than half a century since Shultz entered public life, the world has changed dramatically. But he remains guided by the belief that “you can learn about the future—or at least relate to it—by studying the past and identifying principles that have continuing application to our lives and our world.” Here’s a rare chance to hear from one of America’s most respected statesmen.

The Era of State Constitution Writing [No. 86]
 
02:21
When was ‘the greatest era of constitution writing?’ Judge Jeffrey Sutton highlights how the Framers, in drafting the Constitution, drew upon the experience of the state constitutions written after the Declaration of Independence in 1776. They borrowed key provisions such as separation of powers and protections of individual rights. Judge Sutton argues that the period of 1776 - 1787 is an important and frequently-neglected part of the story of the U.S. Constitution. Jeffrey S. Sutton sits on the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. Judge Sutton was a partner with the law firm of Jones Day Reavis & Pogue in Columbus, Ohio, and served as State Solicitor of the State of Ohio. He also served as a law clerk to the Honorable Lewis F. Powell, Jr. (Ret.), the Honorable Antonin Scalia and the Honorable Thomas J. Meskill. He is the author of 51 Imperfect Solutions: States and the Making of American Constitutional Law.

Are administrative law judges constitutional? [No. 86]
 
02:33
How do administrative law judges (or ALJ’s) fit into the structure of the Constitution? Professor Jennifer Mascott explores some of the roles that ALJ’s perform, including executive adjudication (applying the law to facts - a practice that has happened since the beginning of the United States) and making decisions of greater importance (for instance, to take away liberty or property, which is given to judges under Article III of the Constitution). Determining when an ALJ is exercising an appropriate scope of power under Articles I, II, and III raises complicated questions of Constitutional law.

Tressie McMillan Cottom | Race in the U.S. | A free public course at The New School
 
01:31:06
“Race in the U.S.” (http://newschool.edu/raceintheus) is The New School’s second University course on post-election America, and is sponsored by the Provost’s Office and the 2017 Henry Cohen Lecture Series of the Milano School of International Affairs, Management and Urban Policy (http://newschool.edu/milano). WEEK 10: "Race and Lower Ed in the New Economy" with Tressie McMillan Cottom, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Sociology at Virginia Commonwealth University and faculty associate with Harvard University’s Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society. Author of Lower Ed: The Troubling Rise of For-Profit Colleges in the New Economy (2017, The New Press). The New York Times called Lower Ed the “best book yet on the complex lives and choices of for-profit college students”. To prepare for the lecture, read “New Federal Data Show a Student Loan Crisis for African American Borrowers” (http://americanprogress.org/issues/education-postsecondary/news/2017/10/16/440711/new-federal-data-show-student-loan-crisis-african-american-borrowers). The 2016 U.S. Presidential election revealed the stubborn persistence of bigotry in the United States, and demonstrated that race continues to play a significant, if changing, role in how we define our communities, develop our public policy, and shape our democratic institutions. This course brings together scholars, experts, thought leaders and activists to examine such issues as racial stratification, implicit bias, and the complex, intersectional relationships between race, gender, and class. What is race and how do we understand it today? How are demographic shifts driving wedges between communities and/or fostering pluralism? How democratic is our pluralist society? What is the role of racial divides in fomenting political partisanship? What impact does racialized discourse have on such issues as the social safety net, immigration, criminal justice, technology, voting, and urban policy? The objective of the course is to deepen the knowledge and understanding of participants on how “race” is constructed in US society, it’s implications for policies, outcomes and discourse and to develop greater critical analysis of race in the US. Darrick Hamilton is Director of the Doctoral Program in Public and Urban Policy, and jointly appointed as Associate Professor of Economics and Urban Policy at The Milano School and the Department of Economics at The New School for Social Research (http://newschool.edu/nssr). Professor Hamilton is a stratification economist, whose work focuses on the causes, consequences and remedies of racial and ethnic inequality in economic and health outcomes, which includes an examination of the intersection of identity, racism, colorism, and socioeconomic outcomes. He has authored numerous scholarly articles on socioeconomic stratification in education, marriage, wealth, homeownership, health (including mental health), and labor market outcomes.

Proto Magazine: End of Life Care for Dementia Patients: Changing Public Policy
 
04:50
Policy Alzheimer's disease Hospice Published On Feb 25, 2015 Policy Troubled Passage More Americans are dying with dementia and Alzheimer's. A Proto video series explores how hospitals, doctors and policy makers may be failing them. In Long Last Moments, Cathryn Delude details the events of her mother's slow death from Alzheimer's. She describes a health care system that seems calibrated to undermine her mother's wishes for comfort care. Delude ran into physicians who would not honor her mother's medical directives, a cap on hospice benefits that created a gap in her mother’s end-of-life care, and a maze of protocols that even she, as a long-time health writer, could not penetrate. The first video explores some of the institutional issues that face the increasing number of Americans who face a dementia diagnosis that may ultimately be their cause of death. "What's it going to take for our society to be prepared for that tsunami of dementia which is coming?" asks Diane Meier, director of the Center to Advance Palliative Care. Institutional Issues The second video explores how doctors and hospitals specifically need to find a new model of care for these patients. "As we become more reliant on the technical aspects of care, we're having a harder time supporting the patient and family, and learning about them, and how we can best use the technology of medicine to reach their goals," says Julia Gallagher, medical director of the Home Based Palliative Care program at Massachusetts General Hospital. Changing doctor training protocols and re-imagining home as a center of treatment may help to narrow the gap. A New Model of Care What are the fundamental problems of changing public policy around hospice specifically, and the reimbursement of care around those who face the slow decline of dementia? http://protomag.com/articles/hospice
