There is no evidence here that Medicaid coverage leads to reductions in utilization in other dimensions. In fact, Medicaid coverage makes people more likely to visit the Emergency Department, and increases their number of visits relative to their baseline.
In Lukewarming: The New Climate Science that Changes Everything, Pat Michaels and Chip Knappenberger explain the real science and spin behind the headlines and come to a provocative conclusion: global warming is not hot—it’s lukewarm. Climate change is real, it is partially man-made, but it is clearer than ever that its impact has been exaggerated—with many predictions now being rendered implausible or impossible. This new paperback edition of the book is an expanded edition of last year’s ebook-only edition of Lukewarming, and includes updates in science and policy following the accords reached at the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris.

Congress is working to reauthorize the No Child Left Behind Act, and prospects for meaningful reform are poor. Most proposals call for a nip here and a tuck there, but little else. That won’t do, according to Cato education analyst Neal McCluskey’s new book Feds in the Classroom: How Big Government Corrupts, Cripples and Compromises American Education. After examining Washington’s education track record and the largely forgotten history of American schooling, McCluskey concludes that only two things — ceasing federal education involvement and implementing universal school choice — can get our kids the education they need. Please join us for a discussion of this controversial thesis and what must be done to truly leave no child behind.
