Описание: The Internet is facilitating a generational transition among American political advocacy organizations.

It also explains the partisan character of these technological innovations.
Описание: If you think Americans have the best health-care system in the world, think again. In this deeply researched and controversial book, Dr. Stephen Schimpff explains why our health-care delivery system serves us so poorly, why it costs so much, and why government policy over many decades has not only failed to improve care delivery but has actually made it worse.
Описание: This book explores how a church once known as a force for social justice became known for a few key wedge issues, then looks at the opportunities for change in the "age of Francis." The first non-European pope in more than a millennium, Pope Francis is shaking up a church that has been mired in scandal and demoralized by devastating headlines.
Описание: A scholarly article published in 2006 demonstrated that a dollar invested in the Dow Jones Industrial Average on days when Congress was in session in 1897 and held until the end of 2004 - a 108-year period - would have compounded into only two dollars. The same dollar invested on days when Congress was out of session days would have compounded into $216.10 - a return more than 100 times greater. The fact is that while Congress gets fat on insider trades, the equity markets and its participants suffer. Almost twenty years ago, author Eric Singer discovered the Congressional Effect-the severely negative impact Congress has over time on the stock market, and the inverse effect that their recesses have. In this book, Singer details what this effect is, why it occurs, and how you can trade around it.

The election of Donald Trump and the great disruption in the news and social media.
Donald Trump's election as the 45th President of the United States came as something of a surprise -- to many analysts, journalists, and voters. The New York Times's The Upshot gave Hillary Clinton an 85 percent chance of winning the White House even as the returns began to come in. What happened? And what role did the news and social media play in the election? In Trump and the Media, journalism and technology experts grapple with these questions in a series of short, thought-provoking essays. Considering the disruption of the media landscape, the disconnect between many voters and the established news outlets, the emergence of fake news and "alternative facts," and Trump's own use of social media, these essays provide a window onto broader transformations in the relationship between information and politics in the twenty-first century.
The contributors find historical roots to current events in Cold War notions of "us" versus "them," trace the genealogy of the assault on facts, and chart the collapse of traditional news gatekeepers. They consider such topics as Trump's tweets (diagnosed by one writer as "Twitterosis") and the constant media exposure given to Trump during the campaign. They propose photojournalists as visual fact checkers ("lessons of the paparazzi") and debate whether Trump's administration is authoritarian or just authoritarian-like. Finally, they consider future strategies for the news and social media to improve the quality of democratic life.
