Check out the most read reports from 2017

Today, I’d like to share with you the top most popular Heritage reports from 2017.

These are the reports that Heritage members like yourself found most interesting and are the backbone of Heritage’s work.

As a member of Heritage, you enable our experts to continue to create and disperse the conservative solution to the most pressing needs of our day.

Below are the three most popular reports of 2017.

  1. Sex, Gender, and the Origin of the Culture Wars: An Intellectual History. Many Americans today have accepted what seemed inconceivable just a generation ago: that gender is artificial, is socially constructed, and can be chosen freely by all individuals. This report examines the history of the cultural war and how we got to where we are today.
  2. $15 Minimum Wages Will Substantially Raise Prices. This report takes a look at the impact that raising the minimum wage to $15 would have on consumer’s spending power.
  3. A Plan to Repeal and Replace Obamacare.  After the failure of Obamacare, Heritage experts lay out a clear plan to repeal and replace Obamacare and get our healthcare system back on the right track.

How one man is setting the debate for law practices

You are continuing to have a great influence through the work of Heritage’s policy experts.

Paul Larkin, a Senior Research Fellow in the Meese Center for Legal and Judicial Studies, works hard to fight against any misuse of criminal law–especially at the federal government level.

Larkin has been with Heritage for six years and has published over 40 articles in several notable law and public policy journals.

Recently, Larkin’s work was instrumental in overturning an illegal practice by the Obama Administration. This practice involved taking money the government received in a settlement and giving it to third parties that were friends of the Administration–money that was supposed to be placed into the US Treasury so Congress could decide how to spend it.

Larkin published numerous articles explaining why this practice should be stopped and a few months ago Attorney General Jeff Sessions repealed this policy–citing Larkin’s work as support for his decision.

Thanks to your continued support experts like Paul Larkin are enabled to keep fighting for your conservative principles.

Heritage’s new president on education equality

Kay Coles James, Heritage’s president-elect, has a passion for the future of our nation’s children–especially when it comes to their education.

This past summer she wrote an article in The Daily Signal explaining some of the glaring problems of our education system–and who is responsible. In her article she states:

But missing from this year’s ceremonies are more than one million kids who dropped out and will not be attending graduation day.

The future those high school dropouts face is chilling. They will have a much harder time getting a job and will earn much less than those who did graduate. They’re also more likely to commit a crime and more likely to be the victim of one.

In short, many of them face a life that will be so much more difficult—all because they could not or chose not to finish high school.

Every single child—no matter their race, income, gender, or address—has the equal right to receive an excellent education. And every day in which that right isn’t a reality is a day in which we are losing more of these precious children.
