The general public, educators and politicians would benefit immensely from reading “Discrimination and Disparities,” if only to avoid being unknowingly duped.
One of the painful realities of our times is how long a political lie can survive, even after having been disproved. A classic example is the phrase “tax cuts for the rich,”

What makes Mrs. DeVos seem so threatening to the teachers’ unions and their political allies?
Sowell’s assessments were rooted not in fear or hatred or fanaticism or moral superiority, but in empirical evidence. He judged outcomes, not oration. He didn’t make excuses. He made sense.

Hillary Clinton has performed the verbal magic of turning her years of repeated disastrous decisions in foreign policy into a political asset called “experience.”
With rent control proposals & minimum wage laws wonder if the economics profession has failed to educate the public in the most elementary economic lessons.
The left cannot face the hard fact that its own vision & policies worsened the very things they claimed would be made better.
