Lockdowns don't work, argues Lyman Stone in a recent piece. Instead, to really crush the curve of coronavirus infections (rather than just flattening it), we need to follow the model of successful Asian nations and implement a robust system of contact tracing. Lyman called in from Hong Kong to discuss what this would look like, as well as China's recent efforts to crack down on the city.

Lyman Stone is an Adjunct Fellow at AEI, a Research Fellow at the Institute for Family Studies, and a former International Economist at the US Department of Agriculture. He blogs about migration, population dynamics, and regional economics at In a State of Migration. His work has been covered in the The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, and numerous local outlets.

Can President Trump unilaterally "reopen" the country? How much power do the states' governors have to regulate businesses, parks, and other facilities? Can we make China pay for the economic damage the CCP has wrought? And when and how will these interminable lockdowns end? Law professor, constitutional expert, and podcast aficionado John Yoo joined Banter this week to answer these questions and more.

John Yoo is Emanuel S. Heller Professor of Law at the University of California, Berkeley, and a visiting scholar at AEI since 2003. He served as a deputy assistant attorney general in the Office of the Legal Counsel of the US Department of Justice from 2001 to 2003, where he worked on constitutional and national security matters, as General Counsel of the US Senate Committee on the Judiciary from 1995-96, and as a law clerk to Justice Clarence Thomas of the US Supreme Court. He is the author "Crisis and Command: A History of Executive Power from George Washington to George W. Bush," along with several other books.

Congressman Dan Crenshaw's story needs no embellishment. In 2012, on his third tour of duty in Afghanistan, an improvised explosive device left his right eye destroyed and his left blinded. Only through the careful hand of his surgeons, and what doctors called a miracle, did Crenshaw's left eye recover partial vision. And yet, he persevered, completing two more deployments. Why?

He tells his story in his new book, "Fortitude: American Resilience in the Era of Outrage," which he joined Banter to talk about with us. We discuss the outrage culture plaguing our politics, and what we can do about it. Then, we ask the Congressman about America's response to the coronavirus pandemic, and the long-term implications it is likely to have.

Originally from the Houston area, Rep. Dan Crenshaw is a 6th generation Texan. In 2006, he graduated from Tufts University, and then joined the Navy SEALs, embarking on five deployments overseas. An IED blast during a mission in Helmand province, Afghanistan, cost him his right eye, but after recovering he deployed two more times, to the Middle East in 2014 and South Korea in 2016. He was medically retired in September of 2016, after serving ten years in the SEAL Teams. Soon after, he completed his Master's in Public Administration at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. In November 2018, he was elected to represent the people of Texas's Second Congressional District.

In times of national crisis, how do American institutions respond? AEI President Robert Doar joined Banter this week to discuss the work AEI is doing in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, and draw on his own experience serving in New York's government in the years following the attacks of September 11.

Robert Doar is the president and Morgridge Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. He joined AEI in 2014 to create a new body of work on poverty studies, after serving for more than 20 years in leadership positions in the social service programs of New York State and New York City under Gov. George Pataki and Mayor Michael Bloomberg. AEI's poverty studies program and the scholars in it have since become leading voices in the national discussion on the importance of work, family, and personal responsibility in human flourishing.

During the later years of the George W. Bush administration and throughout the presidency of Barack Obama, a group that came to be known as "reformocons" began arguing that the Right needed to update its policy agenda; formulated to address the circumstances of the late 1970s, it had since gradually hardened into a set of dogmatic slogans. Family, community, traditional religion, civil society, and civic republicanism needed protection and support, they argued. But taking these social concerns seriously did not mean abandoning the Right's affinity for market economics; it meant putting that affinity to use in the service of empowering working families.

What has come of this agenda? How does the presidency of Donald Trump relate to it? And will reform conservatism be a force in the future? To discuss these questions and more, we were joined by Dr. Yuval Levin.

Yuval Levin is the director of Social, Cultural, and Constitutional Studies at AEI. The founding and current editor of National Affairs, he is also a senior editor of The New Atlantis and a contributing editor to National Review. Dr. Levin served as a member of the White House domestic policy staff under President George W. Bush. He is the author of several books on political theory and public policy, most recently "A Time to Build: From Family and Community to Congress and the Campus, How Recommitting to Our Institutions Can Revive the American Dream."

Just weeks after political pundits left Joe Biden's campaign for dead, he stormed back on Super Tuesday and reclaimed his status as the Democratic primary's frontrunner. What caused this resurgence? And what does it mean for the Democratic Party? Matt Continetti joined the show to discuss what it means for Bernie, whether socialism is still the future for the Democratic Party, why Elizabeth Warren could never catch on, and much more.

Matthew Continetti is a resident fellow at AEI, where his work is focused on American political thought and history, with a particular focus on the development of the Republican Party and the American conservative movement in the 20th century. A prominent journalist, analyst, author, and intellectual historian of the right, Continetti was the founding editor and the editor-in-chief of The Washington Free Beacon. He is also a contributing editor at National Review and a columnist for Commentary Magazine, and appears frequently on Fox News Channel's "Special Report" with Bret Baier and MSNBC's "Meet the Press Daily" with Chuck Todd.

The major fault line in American politics, argues Michael Lind, isn't Republican vs. Democrat: It is the managerial overclass -- the university-credentialed elite that clusters in high-income hubs and dominates government, the economy, and the culture -- vs. the working class of the low-density heartlands. The two classes clash over immigration, trade, social values, and a range of other issues, and the constant triumphs of the numerically-smaller overclass are the primary source of political tension today.

To break down this conflict, and discuss how to solve it, we interviewed Michael Lind, author of "The New Class War: Saving Democracy from the Managerial Elite." Lind is the author of more than a dozen books of nonfiction, fiction, and poetry, including "The Next American Nation" and "Land of Promise." He has been an editor or staff writer for The New Yorker, Harper's, The New Republic, and The National Interest. He has taught at Harvard and Johns Hopkins and is currently a professor of practice at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin.

We discuss two issues near and dear to his heart -- immigration and education policy -- as well as what shaped his own political beliefs, how the GOP can broaden its appeal to younger voters, who he thinks will win the Super Bowl, and much more.

Governor Bush served as governor of Florida from 1998-2006, becoming the first Republican ever to be re-elected to that post. He is the son of President George H. W. Bush and the brother of President George W. Bush.

Anthony Scaramucci joined Banter to discuss the Democratic field of presidential candidates, his journey from President Trump's inner circle to fierce critic, the future of the Republican Party, and what it's like being an outsider in Washington, DC.

Anthony Scaramucci, or "The Mooch," is the founder of investment firm SkyBridge Capital and former White House Communications Director for President Trump. His time as Communications Director, however, was short-lived; he was fired after just 11 days. Scaramucci continues to run SkyBridge Capital today, while also serving as a regular contributor to CNN and other prominent media outlets. A native of Long Island, New York, The Mooch received a B.A. in economics from Tufts University and a J.D. from Harvard Law School.

New York Times columnist Ross Douthat joined Banter to discuss what it's like being a conservative who writes for a predominantly liberal audience, the state of religion in America, and why the Star Wars sequels represent all that is wrong with modern American society.

Ross Douthat is a fellow at AEI and a columnist for The New York Times. In 2009 he became their youngest-ever columnist, taking the position at the age of 29. He's the author of several books, including "Privilege: Harvard and the Education of the American Elite" and "Bad Religion: How We Became a Nation of Heretics."

Congresswoman Elise Stefanik recently emerged as a rising star of the GOP for her role in the Trump impeachment hearings. She has long been on the national stage, though, having become the youngest ever Congresswoman when elected at the age of 30 in 2014. Congresswoman Stefanik joined us this week to discuss impeachment, how Republicans can appeal to younger Americans, the GOP's approach to environmentalism, and more.

Elise Stefanik represents New York's 21st congressional district. An Albany-native, she earned a BA in Government from Harvard University in 2006.

This week we sat down with David French to discuss the new media venture he is helping launch, The Dispatch.

David French recently joined The Dispatch as a senior editor after several years as a staff writer at National Review. Before that he was president of the Foundation of Individual Rights in Education and served as a JAG officer in the US Army during the Iraq War, where he was awarded a Bronze Star.

A gay conservative who helped pioneer the marriage equality movement, he was pals with Boris Johnson at Oxford, did his PhD at Harvard, and writes one of the best columns we read each week -- a Friday essay on politics and society for New York magazine.

He joined us this week for a long interview in which we discuss everything from his upbringing in Britain, his college days with Boris Johnson, his experience in the gay rights movement, his views on religious liberty laws, President Trump's impeachment, and much more.

According to some polls, more millennials today support socialism than capitalism. Is this a temporary blip or a more worrying long-term trend? Paul Ryan worries it is the latter, and the former Speaker joined this week's episode of Banter to discuss how conservatives can go about changing this. We also ask Speaker Ryan about inequality, poverty, evidence-based policymaking, and much more in a rapid-fire Q&A.

Paul Ryan, who served as Speaker of the US House of Representatives from October 2015 to January 2019, is a distinguished visiting fellow in the practice of public policy at AEI. He is also a professor-of-the-practice at the University of Notre Dame, where he is teaching political science and economics. At AEI, Speaker Ryan's work focuses on opportunity, mobility, the social safety net, and entitlement reform.

American global leadership may be out of fashion, but New York Times columnist Bret Stephens argues that the alternative is far worse. Stephens joins Banter to discuss foreign policy under President Trump and make the case that the world -- and America -- are far better off when America is leading it.

Bret Stephens joined The New York Times as an Op-Ed columnist in April 2017. Before that, he was deputy editorial page editor and foreign affairs columnist for The Wall Street Journal and editor-in-chief of The Jerusalem Post. He has reported from around the world and interviewed scores of world leaders, and is the author of "America in Retreat: The New Isolationism and the Coming Global Disorder." Mr. Stephens is the recipient of numerous awards and distinctions, including two honorary doctorates and the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for commentary. He was raised in Mexico City and holds a B.A. from the University of Chicago and an MSc. from the London School of Economics.

Many people take for granted that China and America have entered another Cold War. Yet unlike 40 years ago, America has extensive ties with its new rival, giving China tremendous leverage over America through education, trade, technology, investment, and countless other means. General Robert Spalding argues that these ties are part of a conscious Chinese effort to conduct a "stealth war" against the US, and American policymakers are failing to keep up.

Brigadier General Robert Spalding (USAF, Ret.) has served as a senior director on the National Security Council and was the chief architect for the National Security Strategy. He is a former China strategist for the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Defense Attaché in Beijing, and senior defense official. He holds a PhD in economics and mathematics from the University of Missouri and is fluent in Mandarin. His new book, "Stealth War: How China Took Over While America's Elite Slept," is out now.

In October, A. Wayne Johnson -- one of the Trump administration's senior student loan officials -- announced his resignation, calling the federal student loan system "fundamentally broken." He then proposed the government should forgive most outstanding student debt and terminate the student loan program. Dr. Johnson makes this case as a conservative and long-time Republican, and he joined this week's edition of Banter to discuss his plan with three skeptical hosts.

Dr. A. Wayne Johnson was appointed the Chief Operating Officer of Federal Student Aid in 2017 and resigned earlier this year. He is the Founder, Chairman, and former CEO of First Performance Corporation, a global payment card technology platform company. Dr. Johnson's business experience includes working as a senior executive with TSYS, First Data, VISA, Deloitte, and as Chief Executive Officer for companies in both the banking and information processing sectors. A native of Macon, Georgia, Dr. Johnson holds a PhD and a Bachelor's Degree from Mercer University, and an MBA from Emory University.

Today we take for granted that everyday Americans can invest on Wall Street at an affordable price, but Joe Ricketts helped make that happen. He founded Ameritrade with just $12,500 borrowed from friends and family, and through risk-taking and perseverance grew it into a company now worth $30 billion. He joined the show this week to discuss his journey and what it says about America's free-enterprise system.

Joe Ricketts is the founder, former CEO, and retired chairman of online brokerage TD Ameritrade. He is also the author of the new book, "The Harder You Work, the Luckier You Get: An Entrepreneur's Memoir."

"Globalism" has become an epithet to leaders across the world like Donald Trump and Viktor Orbán. But not to Dalibor Rohac, author of the new book, "In Defense of Globalism," which advocates an alternative, cosmopolitan conservative tradition, in contrast to the more nationalist turn sweeping the West in recent years. He makes the case for global institutions such as the EU and answers globalism's critics in the first half of this show.

Then, why is Britain gearing up for another election? Will the Brexit saga ever end? And can the Tories expect to capture the sweeping majority that eluded Theresa May in 2017? Dalibor addresses these questions and more.

Dalibor Rohac is a research fellow at AEI, where he studies European political and economic trends. He's also the author of the book "Towards an Imperfect Union: A Conservative Case for the EU." You can follow him on Twitter @DaliborRohac.
