In our latest issue, we assembled the leading thinkers in the realms of regulation and the digital economy to chart a path for the future. How can government continue to play its proper role without strangling innovation in the crib?

David France assesses the emerging literature on the fight for gay marriage. And Dayo Olopade probes one of the more interesting geopolitical moves of our time: China’s growing investment in Africa.
