December 6, 1983: This AEI Public Policy Forum addresses the issue of the division of war powers between the president and the Congress. Should Congress attempt what the Founding Fathers were unwilling to do in writing the Constitution-define and catalog the prerogatives and powers of the president and the Congress in the exercise of war powers? Does the War Powers Resolution of 1973 unconstitutionally infringe the prerogatives of the president as commander in chief? What powers does the president have to act in an emergency? What constitutes adequate consultation with the Congress before the president commits troops into hostilities? In giving Congress the right to direct the president to pull out troops, does the War Powers Resolution provide a legislative veto of the kind the Supreme Court found unconstitutional in the Chadha decision?

Called terminals dues, these fees were historically beneficial to the United States. But recently, many global changes have made this policy a loser for the US, as the UPU makes international mail more expensive — and even more dangerous — for Americans. AEI Visiting Scholar Rick Geddes discusses with mail expert James Campbell.

Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos has issued new guidelines on federal student-loan forgiveness in an attempt to more sensibly balance the rights of borrowers and taxpayers. Predictably, the higher-education cartel and its media allies were aghast. AEI's Rick Hess explains how the new standard is clearly better for colleges, taxpayers, and students who are willing to repay their debts.

To give perspective to so broad a subject, this discussion focuses on the economy, on domestic policy, on the state of America's institutions, and on foreign affairs.

AEI is an idea that champions individual liberty, advances American leadership, and lifts people to their highest. It's the idea that competitive, free enterprise is what makes this all possible.

McShane take a deep dive into understanding the high-water mark of federal involvement in K-12 education that was the Bush and Obama years. In this video, the authors discuss both the intended and unintended consequences of reforms during the two administrations, and examine what lessons can be applied to future efforts.
