From the Aspen Ideas Festival, recorded Tuesday, June 26, 2018. Jordan Peterson, author of the best-selling 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos, may be one of the most famous intellectuals in North America today. He also may be among the most misunderstood. His fans say that he’s saved their lives, and detractors say that he’s the gateway drug to the alt-right. Who is this psychologist-philosopher whom so many of us had never heard of two years ago, and what does he really believe?...

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) of 1938 established the federal minimum wage and overtime pay, created a standard work week, and prohibited children’s employment in dangerous conditions. Leaders passed the FLSA not only to ensure “a fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work,” as FDR said, but also to end a race to the bottom on wages and working conditions that were driving business competition. \r \r The law raised wages for hundreds of thousands of workers at the time, but also...

Catalyzed by events like the murder of George Floyd and inspired by powerful social movements, many corporations have moved from tacit to far more open positions on hot-button social issues.

As the Western media reacted to the horrific attacks on the office of Charlie Hebdo and the Kosher deli in Paris, producers from news outlets around the country picked up their phones, looking for people to speak for the Muslim global community.

As has been the case many times in the years since September 11, 2001, Islam writ large found itself sharing the screen with...

The televised debates between Gore Vidal and William F. Buckley in the summer of 1968 are the subject of the new PBS documentary. They skyrocketed ABC from dead last in the ratings and birthed a new era in public discourse. Today the heavily scripted exchanges of Sunday-morning television and 24-hour news are a far cry from the explosive but informed vitriol that surrounded the arguments between two of our country’s towering intellectuals. A discussion on the current health — or infirmity...

What is trust? “A firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something.” (We googled it). How much, not to mention who, we should trust is more complex now, given the technological tools we have at our disposal and the crafty creatives who might push the world’s next great product, or the next fake story, or — far worse — the hackers who can seriously damage personal or global security. The pace with which we receive and share information is outstripping...

The future of our energy system is diversified, distributed, and clean. Cities are epicenters of energy consumption, and can be vulnerable to large scale blackouts resulting from severe weather events and natural disasters, human error, or cyber-attacks. But decentralizing the grid through distributed microgrids, regions can fortify themselves to prevent widespread power failures. And by leveraging underutilized urban spaces, cities can facilitate the growth of distributed energy resources,...
