Women looking for bargains probably won’t find them at Customs. The burden of tariffs falls heavily—and in many cases exclusively—on the consumer.  So when the tariff on women’s leather shoes is higher than the tariff on men’s leather shoes (which it is), women feel the pain, says Dr. Lori Taylor, an associate professor at the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University.


April 14, 2015

Dr. Ann Bowman was elected to the executive council of the Section on Intergovernmental Administration and Management (SIAM) at the March 2015 annual conference of the American Society for Public Administration (ASPA).


April 10, 2015

New York Times columnist Ross Douthat’s March 29 article, “The Method to Obama’s Middle East Mess,” focuses on offshore balancing as a grand strategic alternative to the Pax Americana (a strategy that security studies scholars also refer to as primacy).

To address the deteriorating condition of America’s roads, researchers at Texas A&M University say that instead of a series of one-time fixes, a more permanent solution is needed to provide the Highway Trust Fund (HTF) with sufficient revenues to keep up with increasing needs: a vehicle mileage tax (VMT) on commercial vehicles and a higher gas tax on private vehicles.


April 08, 2015

Jessica Gottlieb, assistant professor in the Bush School’s Department of International Affairs (INTA), joined the faculty in the fall of 2013 after earning her PhD from Stanford University. Gottlieb also earned her master’s degree in economics from Stanford and previously studied at Yale University, where she received a dual BA degree cum laude in political science and international studies. At the Bush School, Gottlieb teaches courses in the political economy of development in Africa, field research methods, and political and economic institutions.
