age of participants was 25 years old.

How Latinos are transforming American politics

With America’s Latino electorate projected to potentially double by 2030, Democratic and Republican strategists alike are grappling with what America’s changing demographics mean for their party’s future. 

In the last year, congressional Republican leaders flirted with passing immigration reform to improve their standing with Latinos only to back away after meeting fierce resistance from their base. On the other side, Democrats are still struggling with how far they’re willing to go to on the issue. President Obama recently outraged Latino groups by delaying a promised overhaul of deportation procedures amid complaints from Democrats in conservative states that dramatic action could drag down their campaigns.

Few people have studied this phenomenon as closely as political scientist Matt Barreto, who co-founded the influential polling firm Latino Decisions with fellow academic Gary Segura. In a new book, ”Latino America: How America’s Most Dynamic Population is Poised to Transform the Politics of the Nation,”

As Government Shutdown Persists, Americans Feel the Bite

WASHINGTON — The impact of a partial government shutdown began to ripple across the economy as it stretched into Day 17, with mortgage applications delayed, public companies unable to get approval to raise capital and thousands of Secret Service agents expected to show up for work without pay.

President Trump and congressional Democrats have made little progress in negotiations to end a shutdown that has affected about 800,000 federal workers, many of whom will miss their first paycheck this week, and who owe a combined $249 million in monthly mortgage payments, according to the online real estate firm Zillow.

The shutdown shows no sign of ending soon, with Mr. Trump announcing Monday that he would address the nation on Tuesday evening from the Oval Office to discuss what he called the crisis at the southern border, and the White House saying that he would travel to the border this week

Organized Crime: The Unvarnished Truth About Government

Politics and thieves, coercion and regulation, fascism and the Fed, centralization and liberty, workers and unions, trade and freedom, free-market achievements and government disasters in American history — this book covers it all!

Organized Crime collection of essays in the tradition of Austrian political economy—a combination of applied economics and the study of governmental reality. Unlike “mainstream” economists who are content to spin mathematical model after mathematical model which explain little or nothing about the real world, DiLorenzo’s focus has always been just the opposite—to use economic understanding to gain a better understanding of how the political-economic world works. Austrian economics is indispensable to succeed at this task.

The book is divided into six sections: “Coercion and Regulation” analyzes various aspects of government regulation of business; “Politics and Thieves” is of course about the inherent nature of government; “Centralization versus Liberty” discusses the never-ending quest by statists to monopolize
