Work probably dominates your time in one way or another: Either you spend most of your waking hours on it, or you’re dealing with the hardship of not being able to find any. Work is also at the very heart of everything we value about the economy, so how we talk about it matters, says Sarah Skwire, even beyond just how we feel about our days. Bruce Yandle looks into where all those people who aren’t even trying to find work have gone. D.W. MacKenzie explains why raising the minimum wage is only going to mean more people fall back out of the workforce. Plus, Lawrence Reed discusses what we’re really all about at FEE, Jeffrey Tucker says there’s an encouraging trend in pop culture, Tom Bell lays out a way to keep cities vibrant, and much, much more.
