My article Less Perfect Unions
, about teacher unions and the fundamental instability of the 1960s public sector collective bargaining revolution as revealed by Scott Walker`s war in Wisconsin
, has now appeared in The American Conservative
. (I wrote a whole book on this wonkish topic, The Worm In The Apple
, still in print.)
The word "immigration"
nowhere appears in the article. But I do get to mention Stein`s Law—"If something cannot go on forever, it will stopâ€?
—which applies equally to the Teacher Trust and that other typical 1960s phenomenon, U.S. immigration policy
