  • Income mobility is the American Dream. Most Minnesotans never achieve it.

    May 17, 2024

    There is a belief among Americans that with hard work, education and maybe a little luck, anyone can improve their lot in life. That even if you start on the bottom rung of the income ladder, it's possible to climb to the top. But for most people, that's not true. Though Americans as a whole have historically been able to count on doing better economically than their parents, for children born since 1980 out-earning the previous generation has been a coin toss. New data the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis compiled into the Income...

  • A rousing Minnesota unwelcome for Donald Trump

    May 17, 2024

    Before Minnesotans decisively rejected him on Election Day 2020, then-President Donald Trump — at a Duluth campaign stop — uttered music to our ears: "If I lose Minnesota, I'm never coming back, I don't care. I'm never coming back!" That wasn't the first lie that Trump told Minnesotans and it certainly won't be the last as he prepares to headline a fundraiser for the Minnesota Republican Party on Friday. After being swept out of power in 2022, the Minnesota GOP should be sprinting away from Trump and his MAGA agenda. Instead, they continue to...
