    Don’t Be Fooled: Working Americans Are Worse Off Under Trump

    An op-ed by Robert J. Shapiro, a senior fellow at Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business who was President Clinton’s undersecretary of commerce for economic affairs: “Despite robust economic numbers during the Trump presidency, the American public has seemed curiously unmoved by such good news as the lowest U.S. unemployment level in nearly half a century.

    An op-ed by Michael Czinkota, associate professor: “Hungary’s revolution against its Soviet occupiers in 1956 was three generations ago.

    Why Instagram's Founders Are Leaving Facebook

    “There’s a little overreaction to these two gentlemen leaving Instagram,” said Jason Schloetzer, a professor at Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business. “They’re obviously important as founders of the Instagram concept, but Facebook has been able to digest what Instagram does and how it works since acquiring it.
