GRUMPY OLD PARTY

As a term of praise for having won the Civil War and having kept the nation together, the Republicans were dubbed the Grand Old Party or GOP. In their century-and-a-half of history, they elected more presidents than any other party. After losing the popular vote in the 2000 presidential election, eking out a tough win in 2004, and losing in 2008 and particularly in 2012 to an incumbent on whose watch a listless economy couldn’t push unemployment much below 8 percent, the attitude of the Republican Party turned sour and negative. GOP might as well had stood for Grumpy Old Party. But all is not lost. In Grumpy Old Party, author Constantinos Scaros identifies 20 tips that will help the party move beyond recent losses, reclaim their respectability, and win. “Instead of spending all that money on political advisors, every Republican should read this book instead!” - Tricia Erickson, author of Can Mitt Romney Serve Two Masters?

The United States is now admitting nearly one million legal immigrants per year, while the flow of illegal aliens into the country continues to increase steadily. The debate over immigration policy has typically focused on three fundamental questions: How do immigrants perform economically relative to others? What effects do immigrants have on the employment opportunities of other workers? What kind of immigration policy is most beneficial to the host country? This authoritative volume represents a move beyond purely descriptive assessments of labor market consequences toward a more fully developed analysis of economic impacts across the social spectrum. Exploring the broader repercussions of immigration on education, welfare, Social Security, and crime, as well as the labor market, these papers assess dimensions not yet taken into account by traditional cost-benefit calculations. This collection offers new insights into the kinds of economic opportunities and outcomes that immigrant populations might expect for themselves and future generations.

Immigration is one of the most complicated issues of our time. Voices on all sides argue strongly for action and change. Christians find themselves torn between the desire to uphold laws and the call to minister to the vulnerable. In this book World Relief immigration experts Matthew Soerens and Jenny Yang move beyond the rhetoric to offer a Christian response to immigration. They put a human face on the issue and tell stories of immigrants' experiences in and out of the system. With careful historical understanding and thoughtful policy analysis, they debunk myths and misconceptions about immigration and show the limitations of the current immigration system. Ultimately they point toward immigration reform that is compassionate, sensible, and just as they offer concrete ways for you and your church to welcome and minister to your immigrant neighbors. This revised edition includes new material on refugees and updates in light of changes in political realities.

Die große neue Stimme aus den USA Imbolo Mbues hochgelobtes Debüt erzählt die unvergessliche Geschichte zweier Familien unterschiedlicher Herkunft, die in New York kurz vor der Bankenkrise aufeinandertreffen. Die Lehman-Brothers-Pleite bringt nicht nur ihr Leben, sondern auch ihr Wertesystem gehörig durcheinander. Jende Jonga hat es endlich geschafft, seine Frau und seinen kleinen Sohn aus Kamerun nach Amerika zu holen. Das Glück scheint komplett, als Jende den Job als Chauffeur von Clark Edwards, einem Manager der Lehmann Brothers Bank, ergattert. Und Mrs Edwards engagiert Jendes Frau sogar als Haus- und Kindermädchen in ihrem Sommerhaus in den Hamptons. Die beiden Familien könnten unterschiedlicher nicht sein und wollen doch dasselbe: ihren Kindern eine gute Zukunft bieten. Allerdings ist das Leben der Bankerfamilie längst nicht so perfekt und glamourös, wie es zunächst scheint. Als Lehman Brothers pleitegeht, ist die Fassade nicht mehr aufrechtzuerhalten. Die Jongas versuchen verzweifelt, Jendes Job zu retten – auch um den Preis ihrer Ehe. Das Leben der beiden Paare wird dramatisch auf den Kopf gestellt und Jende sieht sich gezwungen, eine unmögliche Entscheidung zu treffen. Ein hochaktueller, brillant geschriebener Roman über Familie, Immigration, Heimat und Gesellschaft, der uns alle angeht.
