According to a new analysis of voter registration data, Democrat economists at the Federal Reserve outnumber Republicans 10 to 1. The imbalance is even larger among economists in leadership positions, among younger economists, and among female economists. What implications does this have for the Fed’s official actions and purported political neutrality?

Also in this issue: The fate of future economic growth in the West; Public opinion on controversial speech on campus; Will Millennials abandon socialism?; Public choice theory applied to Covid-19 lockdowns; and more!
