Stephen Moore: We Haveta NAFTA

The clock is ticking as we enter the 4th quarter of negotiations on revising and renewing the North America Free Trade Agreement.

You’re Invited: Policy forum on lessons from Reagan

On Monday April 23, I am hosting a policy forum at Heritage featuring Peggy Grande, who was Reagan’s personal aide after he left the White House. Her book, the “President Will See You Now”, is a sweet and intimate story of Reagan’s life post-presidency. Craig Shirley, Reagan’s authoritative biographer, will be commenting on the book.
