Course Detail: O_DOPOLTW - Domestic Policy Issues: Making Sense in Trump's Washington

Despite one-party control, our national political environment seems both frozen and fluid, polarized in ways that make the most modest of issues impossible to address and, some would argue, dangerous. Are there any breakthroughs emerging to fix major challenges with policies concerning health care, economic growth and inequality, the environment, infrastructure, trade, and taxation? We will draw upon guests from the university and the broader community, as well as the knowledge and expertise of members of the class. Readings will be distributed electronically each week. Be prepared for stimulating discussions. A preliminary schedule, including guests, can be viewed at
