I recently sat down with professor Wayne Geerling, a senior lecturer in economics here at the University of Arizona, to discuss President Donald Trump’s decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum, as well as potential trade wars.
University honors colleges are common steadfast of many American institutions of higher education. They allow students to involve themselves in programs that challenge them academically in an environment with like-minded peers.
The stigma that has begun to ingrain itself among many individuals in the United States and particularly on university campuses regarding the military members or the institution of the American military is disconcerting.
Elitism is not healthy; not necessarily in a personal manner, but rather on a macro level. Elitism is a problem many societies must contend with at some point.
Its meaning is elusive, its usage varied and its implications unclear. "Late capitalism" has remained a nebulous, ill-defined cultural notion, historically relegated to economists and academics to describe the period following World War II and its accompanying consumer culture.

There are lofty aims, ideals out of reach and visions which may never be realized. A better world for the children of this generation ought to be brought about in a manner consistent with the dignity deserved by all people; this comes at a cost. The piper will always be paid.

Four Daily Wildcat columnists talk about gun control and the Las Vegas shooting.
A campus and institution bathed in tradition, the University of Arizona boasts an array of historic and progressive campus designs that contribute to the UA experience and celebrate its growth.
Fake news is old news. The buzzword, ushered into the collective lingo last year by then candidate Donald Trump, refers to news affiliates which he regarded as unreliable or slanderous. Sources often targeted by the president include CNN, MSNBC and The New York Times, among other organizations. Regardless, this discussion does not specifically concern the president, his associates or his policies. Rather, it’s focused on the problem of how the public consumes and redistributes information, which lies on a discrete plane of social behavior.
The power to secure the fate of 800,000 undocumented children and students should not have been left to Congress (a body of people who have produced little results on any issue as of recent.)
President Donald Trump is not the only head of state to experience a recent bout of unfavorable polls. French President Emmanuel Macron's popularity has fallen as well. What central factors are to blame for this trend, and how might they shape these new political landscapes?
