Productivity and Pay: Do Workers Enjoy the Fruits of their Labor?

Do workers enjoy the fruits of their labor? Economic theory predicts that firms pay workers according to their productivity. Some analysts argue this no longer happens in the United States. They contend that workers’ pay has stagnated for the past generation despite large increases in productivity. This belief drives much of the Obama Administration’s regulatory agenda. Labor Secretary Tom Perez explains the newly released salaried overtime regulations are intended ensure that “as we have productivity and profitability in this country, that is shared between business and workers.”

Dangerous Doctrine: How Obama’s Grand Strategy Weakened America

Over the past seven years, President Obama has repudiated the venerable foreign policy tradition embraced by virtually every American President since World War II. That tradition was characterized by robust internationalism grounded in American exceptionalism, muscular deterrence of America’s foes, and staunch defense of America’s democratic friends. President Obama, however, has ambitiously sought to transform America’s relationship with the world by diminishing American power and making multilateralism the default position of U.S. national security policy. In doing this, the President has both succeeded and failed: he has indeed minimized our role in the world, and with it brought on a new era of instability and violence in the most important geopolitical regions. Are the outcomes of the past seven years reversible? How should the next presidential administration proceed in lessening these dangerous outcomes?
