Can Star Wars inform public policy? Have executive powers transformed the US presidency into something comparable to the Galactic Empire? Star Wars or Star Trek? And is Jar Jar a Sith lord?

The Original and Prequel Trilogies tell the story of the redemption of Darth Vader, but how will the new Sequel Trilogy change the overarching story of the Star Wars saga?

Going forward, we need to ensure that the economy is not only creating full-time jobs at a decent pace, but that the elevated levels of involuntary part-time work are reduced—not because people drop out of the labor force completely but because they transition to, and are able to remain in, high-wage full-time jobs.
Since the recession, the labor market recovery has been almost entirely in full-time jobs. However, the increase in part-time work during the recession is holding back wage growth.

Desmond Lachman argues that, post-Brexit, economic and political uncertainty will plague the UK. He answers pro-Brexit claims that the long-term benefits of being outside the EU will outweigh the short-term costs to the UK.
The financing of that deficit requires that capital continue to flow into the country in very substantial amounts. This makes it all too likely that we are only at the start of a prolonged period of considerable sterling weakness.

Given the complex history of Europe’s nation states, it seems likely that an EU that acts as a competition-stifling cartel will grow increasingly unpopular, and more countries will leave it.
As evident from Brexit, it seems likely that an EU that acts as a competition-stifling cartel will grow increasingly unpopular, and more countries will leave it.

Yes, good dream. But it doesn't work, and Britain is losing to EU.
This was the main reason for referendum.
But Brexit doesn't save Britain for sure.

Even though destiny and prophecy seem to be core themes of Star Wars, Cass Sunstein argues that the saga's largest lesson is freedom of choice.

What can Star Wars teach us about social science and public policy? Cass Sunstein explains how the saga offers important lessons about republics and the separation of powers.

Freedom. Enterprise. Opportunity.
Introduction
The American Enterprise Institute is a community of scholars and supporters committed to expanding liberty, increasing individual opportunity and strengthening free enterprise. AEI pursues these unchanging ideals through independent thinking, open debate, reasoned argument, facts and the highest standards of research and exposition. Without regard for politics or prevailing fashion, we dedicate our work to a more prosperous, safer and more democratic nation and world.

AEI is a private, nonpartisan, not-for-profit institution dedicated to research and education on issues of government, politics, economics and social welfare. Founded in 1943, AEI is home to some of America's most accomplished public policy experts. AEI's purpose is to serve leaders and the public through research and education on the most important issues of the day. AEI research is conducted through six primary research divisions: Economics, Foreign and Defense Policy, Politics and Public Opinion, Education, Health, Energy and the Environment and Social and Culture. It also works through several specialized outlets, such as the National Research Initiative (which sponsors research by university-based scholars), the AEI Press, the AEIdeas blog and The American, AEI's online magazine.

Approximately 185 people work at AEI's headquarters in Washington, D.C. In addition, about 50 adjunct scholars and fellows, mainly at research universities around the United States, conduct research for AEI and participate in its conferences. In all our endeavors, AEI trustees, scholars and fellows, and officers and staff are responsible for maintaining the highest standards of integrity, intellectual rigor and excellence—and for sustaining AEI's founding commitment to open inquiry, lucid exposition, vigorous debate and continuous improvement in the institutions of American liberty.
