Capital Research Magazine, Issue 5 2018

Published on:July 5, 2018

We are proud to announce Issue 5 of Capital Research for 2018 is now available! Here’s a peek at what’s inside:

Issue 5 pulls back the curtain on UnKoch My Campus, a small group of activists against so-called “dark money” in higher education. There’s just little problem: this group also receives anonymous donations through its fiscal sponsor, a nonprofit founded by Ralph Nader which obscures how they are funded.

Interested in saving lives? Gun control might not be the best cause to support. Steve Warner reveals some of the most effective ways to prevent deaths from firearms without taking aim at Americans’ Second Amendment rights.

In this issue’s LaborWatch, CRC’s Michael Watson traces the roots of the National Labor Relations Act as part of FDR’s New Deal and its lingering effects in American politics.

Scientists pride themselves on their objective thinking. They work only with facts and phenomena, except when they don’t. Learn about the American Association for the Advancement of Science and its overtly political agenda from CRC’s Hayden Ludwig.

Capital Research is a monthly publication of the Capital Research Center (CRC), a nonpartisan education and research organization, classified by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) public charity.

CRC is an independent, tax-exempt institution governed by an independent board of trustees. We rely on private financial support from the general public—individuals, foundations, and corporations—for our income. We accept no government funds and perform no contract work.

CRC was established in 1984 to promote a better understanding of charity and philanthropy. We support the principles of individual liberty, a free market economy, and limited constitutional government—the cornerstones of American society, which make possible wise and generous philanthropic giving.
