Imagine a world in which North Korea can launch a nuclear-armed ballistic missile at the U.S., and we have absolutely no missile defense. President Trump would be left with only three options for responding to an imminent North Korean long-range missile attack. Fortunately, the Ground-Based Midcourse Defense system is in place. But the threat grows daily.

North Korea no longer poses a nonproliferation problem; it poses a nuclear deterrence problem. The gravest danger now is that North Korea, South Korea, and the United States will stumble into a catastrophic war that none of them wants.

In covering the North Korea nuclear issue, the media understandably have developed a narrative that gives pride of place to North Korean bomb and missile tests and short shrift to diplomatic developments surrounding them. While obviously the progress of North Korea’s weapons of mass destruction programs is a newsworthy and disturbing development, the reactions of various nations interested in the issue deserve more attention than they have received and could point the way toward greater international cooperation to freeze or roll back the North Korean programs. These developments provide a positive counterpoint to the gloom cast by the North Korean tests.
EC51 – Turban, Stephen; Freeman, Laura; Waber, Ben. A STUDY USED SENSORS TO SHOW THAT MEN AND WOMEN ARE TREATED DIFFERENTLY AT WORK (Harvard Business Review, October 23, 2017, various pages) 센서를 이용한 기업내 남녀불평등에 대한 연구 - Click here for available text on the InternetGender equality remains frustratingly elusive. Women are underrepresented in the C-suite, receive lower salaries, and are less likely to receive a critical first promotion to manager than men. Numerous causes have been suggested, but one argument that persists points to differences in men and women’s behavior.

Curiosity is a powerful entrepreneurial force because it unrelentingly guides toward answers. And because answering hard problems creates value, curiosity is a fantastic course to follow when building a successful company.
EC53 – Mone, Gregory. BUILDING TOMORROW’S ROBOTS (MIT Technology Review, October 24, 2017, various pages) 미래로봇 구현 - Click here for available text on the Internet Housed in the Ray and Maria Stata Center, CSAIL was already well established as the world’s top research center for computer science when Rus—the first woman to lead the lab—took over in 2012. Today, CSAIL counts seven MacArthur winners, eight Turing Award recipients, and a knight (Tim Berners-Lee). MIT’s largest research lab, it houses 115 principal investigators (PIs), hundreds of scientists and students, and more than 800 research projects. “There are a lot of ideas here, and each one of our PIs is a big dreamer,” Rus says. “We are kind of a union of dreams, and my role is to make sure we have the environment to cultivate these big dreams and ideas.”
EC54 – Boushey, Heather; Ansel, Bridget. MODERNIZING U.S. LABOR STANDARDS FOR 21ST-CENTURY FAMILIES (Brookings, October 19, 2017, 25 pages) 21세기 가족을 위한 미국노동기준의 현대화 - Click here for available text on the Internet
Women now make up almost half the U.S. workforce. Despite the central role women play in the U.S. economy, our labor laws and institutions do little to address the various ways in which women are held back at work. This not only hampers women’s economic well-being, but also has implications for U.S. productivity, labor force participation, and economic growth. In this paper, we propose policies aimed at boosting women’s economic outcomes: paid family leave, fair scheduling, and combatting wage discrimination.

The October 2017 Global Financial Stability Report (GFSR) finds that the global financial system continues to strengthen in response to extraordinary policy support, regulatory enhancements, and the cyclical upturn in growth. Global bank balance sheets are stronger because of improved capital and liquidity buffers, amid tighter regulation and heightened market scrutiny. However, some banks are still grappling with legacy issues and business model challenges, where progress has been uneven.
US42 – Horowitz, Juliana. WIDE PARTISAN GAPS IN U.S. OVER HOW FAR THE COUNTRY HAS COME ON GENDER EQUALITY (Pew Research Center, October 18, 2017, 25 pages) 양성 평등관련 미국 민주당과 공화당의 이견 – Click here for available text on the InternetWomen in the United States have made significant strides toward closing the gaps that have kept them from achieving equality with men. But the country is sharply divided over how much work remains to be done, and those divisions are rooted mainly in the growing partisan schism that pervades American values and culture these days.
US43 – Terry, Bridget Long. HELPING WOMEN TO SUCCEED IN HIGHER EDUCATION: SUPPORTING STUDENT-PARENTS WITH CHILD CARE (The Brookings Institution, October 19, 2017, 21 pages) 여성 교육기회의 확대: 공부와 육아를 함께할 수 있게 지원 – Click here for available text on the Internet
Women have surpassed men in college enrollment. This trend is particularly pronounced among nontraditional students, including part-time and older students—two groups that face significant challenges in higher education. For the 4.8 million college students who are parents, high-quality, reliable, and affordable child care is essential. I propose building on the Child Care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS) Program to structure an institutional grant program that better supports the availability of high-quality child care for parents pursuing postsecondary credentials (student-parents).

Students with disabilities who are thinking of studying in the United States may be surprised to learn where they can go and what they can achieve at American universities. “International students should learn about different accommodations available to them at their American university,” says Elizabeth Hamblet, a national expert in college transitions for students with disabilities. For example, they might seek permission to record lectures or to take extra time on exams.
