Public Sociology

Writing for the public is just as important as writing for our scholarly peers. I’m a regular contributor and editorial team member at Policy Trajectories, the blog of the ASA’s section on comparative and historical sociology. Some recent examples of writing for the public include:

“Federalism in Blue and Red” (National Affairs, Summer 2017)

“Blue State Chauvinism” (CommonWealth, 6/10/17)

“Tax Reform for Working Class Families” (National Review, 6/8/17)

“Reducing Child Poverty” (New York Times, 4/13/16)

“A Pro-Family Child Tax Credit for the U.S.” (Institute for Family Studies, 11/18/15)

“Canada’s Successful Child Tax Benefit” (Institute for Family Studies, 11/17/15)

“Future Prospects for a Basic Income Guarantee in the United States” (Bleeding Heart Libertarians, 1/7/14)

“The Political Failure of Basic Income Guarantee in the United States” (Bleeding Heart Libertarians, 1/6/14)

“The Positive Political Economy of the Basic Income Guarantee” (Bleeding Heart Libertarians, 1/3/14)
