Posted 3/5/2019 in National Columns

President Trump routinely waves his fist at alleged unfair trade practices, including at the hands of our good neighbor Canada.

Froma Harrop: The star-crossed romance between Amazon and New York City

Posted 2/16/2019 in National Columns

So Amazon chose Valentine's Day to announce its breakup with New York City. No, it will not build a new headquarters in Queens as planned. Who is to blame for the split, the tech behemoth or grouchy New Yorkers? If one must choose, I'd say Amazon.

Froma Harrop: Shutdown hit a wall of truth evasion

Posted 1/29/2019 in National Columns

Froma Harrop: Anti-vaxxers spread a plague of ignorance

Posted 1/21/2019 in National Columns

An outbreak of measles four years ago at Disneyland focused attention on a growing health menace -- the refusal of parents to vaccinate their children. The threat has gone international. The World Health Organization has just named the anti-vaccination movement among the 10 biggest global health crises.


Froma Harrop: Are we truly one paycheck from disaster?

Posted 1/15/2019 in National Columns

Froma Harrop: Are we brave enough for the new world of reproduction?

Froma Harrop: Stop obsessing over Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Posted 12/29/2018 in National Columns

Froma Harrop: Why Barbara Bush is so high up in George H.W.'s obituaries

Posted 12/8/2018 in National Columns

Rarely has a president been identified so closely with his wife. That Barbara Bush never pursued a big-league career made her high profile even more remarkable.
