Guest: Stephanie Coontz, Author of “The Way We Never Were: American Families and the Nostalgia Trap” and Professor of History and Family Studies at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington  “Marrying up” the social and financial ladder has been a deeply-held tenet of courtship in America.

South China Sea

29 MINS

Guest: Eric Jensen, JD, International Law Professor at the BYU Law School  The South China Sea is the hotly-disputed portion of the Pacific Ocean that’s surrounded by Asian countries – China, Taiwan, Vietnam, the Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia all touch the South China Sea. But China has grown increasingly possessive of it in recent years – sparking disputes that are becoming military in nature. The conflict is now so worrisome to international leaders that the developed nations known as the G7 – which include the US, Canada, Japan and several European countries – issued a statement this week basically calling on China to back off – without actually naming China. Beijing shot back that the G7 should mind its own business.
