In his new book 'Why the Right Went Wrong', the Washington Post’s left-leaning columnist E.J. Dionne tracks the history of the conservative movement from the Goldwater Republicans of the 1960s to the Tea Party. We hear the full story.

And the cover story in the latest issue of Capital Ideas, the quarterly research magazine for the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business, looks at the economic legacy of anti-Semitism in Germany and makes the argument that prejudice and intolerance are bad for business.
