On March 8, a South Korean delegation led by the director of national security, Chung Eui-yong, met with officials at the White House. After their meeting, President Trump declared that the South Koreans would make “a major announcement” the same evening at a White House press conference. In a pre-prepared statement, Chung announced that he was carrying a proposal for a U.S.-DPRK summit from North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. According to Chung’s statement, President Trump accepted the proposal and was prepared to hold the summit by May. The North Koreans also reportedly agreed to “complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula” and to refrain from ballistic missile and nuclear weapons testing. The North Korean move is surprising, but critical questions remain.

The United States, South Korea, Japan—and every other state affected by the stability and security of Northeast Asia—has a strong incentive to find a way to end North Korea's nuclear threat and its development and deployment of ICBMs. At the same time, no one can afford to forget that North Korea poses a much wider range of threats from its conventional forces and shorter-range missiles—particularly as it develops ballistic and cruise missiles with precision strike capabilities.

Many observers have called for laws and norms to secure this new environment. But developing such standards in the cyber domain faces a number of difficult hurdles. Although Moore's law about the doubling of computing power every two years means that cyber time moves quickly, human habits, norms, and state practices change more slowly.

Claire L. Evans is the author of the new book: ￼Broad Band The Untold Story of the Women Who Made the Internet. Claire recently caught up with me to discuss Broad Band using email, Skype dates and various document sharing platforms while across the world from each other, with five time zones in between. Her book comes out at a time when #metoo and net neutrality are major topics in the internet conscious and women's roles are being redefined and rewritten.

This report is designed to inform the debate over the health of U.S. manufacturing through a series of charts and tables that depict the position of the United States relative to other countries according to various metrics. Understanding which trends in manufacturing reflect factors that may be unique to the United States and which are related to broader changes in technology or consumer preferences may be helpful in formulating policies intended to aid firms or workers engaged in manufacturing activity. This report does not describe or discuss specific policy options.

Tens of millions of people are escaping poverty thanks to robust economic growth that is helping not just wealthy countries but dozens of poorer ones. The World Bank says the gross domestic products of lower-income nations accelerated 4.3 percent in 2017, faster than the global growth rate of 3 percent. The United States and other countries and the United Nations have set a goal of eliminating extreme poverty everywhere by 2030.

Even for Facebook Inc. Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, who spoke with Bloomberg Businessweek about the fifth anniversary of her book, Lean In, gender issues in the workplace are difficult to talk about. With the book, Sandberg was one of the earliest to raise the call to heed women’s voices, and to that end, she succeeded. In 2012, a year before the book’s release, a survey by the consulting firm McKinsey & Co. found that a little more than half of all U.S. companies considered it a priority to hire and retain women; today that number is 90 percent.

Generational differences have long been a factor in U.S. politics. These divisions are now as wide as they have been in decades, with the potential to shape politics well into the future. From immigration and race to foreign policy and the scope of government, two younger generations, Millennials and Gen Xers, stand apart from the two older cohorts, Baby Boomers and Silents. And on many issues, Millennials continue to have a distinct – and increasingly liberal – outlook.

New census population projections confirm the importance of racial minorities as the primary demographic engine of the nation’s future growth, countering an aging, slow-growing and soon to be declining white population. The new statistics project that the nation will become “minority white” in 2045. During that year, whites will comprise 49.9 percent of the population in contrast to 24.6 percent for Hispanics, 13.1 percent for blacks, 7.8 percent for Asians, and 3.8 percent for multiracial populations (see Figure 1).

A new Pew Research Center survey of U.S. adults finds that the social media landscape in early 2018 is defined by a mix of long-standing trends and newly emerging narratives. Facebook and YouTube dominate this landscape, as notable majorities of U.S. adults use each of these sites. At the same time, younger Americans (especially those ages 18 to 24) stand out for embracing a variety of platforms and using them frequently.

The rise of the #MeToo movement has catapulted a resurgent focus on sexual harassment into the national limelight and consciousness. The new attention has shed greater light on the persistence and prevalence of sexual harassment, but it has also prompted new scrutiny—and even backlash—that has questioned whether the current response to sexual harassment charges has been overly harsh.
