Joe Nocera, “How Democrats Hurt Job Creation” (h/t Josh) – from the article: The law, to be sure, forbids a company from retaliating against a union. But the word “retaliation” suggests direct payback — a company shutting down a factory after a strike, for instance. Boeing did nothing like that. It not only hasn’t laid off a single worker in Washington State, it has added around 3,000 new ones.
Geoffrey Cain, “Watching Titanic in Pyongyang” (h/t aldaily.com) – from the article: Foreign governments donated food aid, hoping to feed at least a third of the population, but half the respondents [North Korean refugees] in Haggard and Noland’s survey said they were unaware of foreign food aid before they left North Korea. Among those who did know about the aid, more than three-quarters reported not receiving it.
