"(Trump's) electoral winning coalition was razor-thin to being with, and he has done nothing to reach out to new constituencies," said Matthew Wilson, a political science professor at Southern Methodist University. "The danger is that many moderate Republicans who were not Trump ‘base’ voters, but who gave him a chance in 2016, have been alienated and will either stay home or defect in 2020.” _________________________________________ President Donald Trump – who once described himself as “very pro-choice” – burnished his anti-abortion credentials during his State of the Union addressTuesday night with harsh attacks on recent state actions.

Urban Revitalization Is Not “One Size Fits All”

Forbes Originally Posted: Feb. 5, 2019 Adopting a one-size-fits-all approach to problem solving is almost never a good policy. What works well in one context could be precisely the wrong thing to do in another. Use an axe to cut down a massive tree; use a scalpel to conduct a delicate surgery. Switching one for the other produces dramatically different results. When it comes to cities and revitalization, this absolutely rings true. I was fortunate to be a part of a fantastic symposium last week, called Policies to Promote Inclusive Urban Growth. It was held in Dallas at the George W. Bush Presidential Center on the campus of Southern Methodist University, and the event also served as the public release of a report which I worked on, Beyond Gentrification: [...]
