Abstract

The cover story describes the retirement patterns of the “baby boom” generation and the demographic, economic, cognitive, and health care implications. Other feature stories consider the potential effects of legalizing marijuana in California, the effectiveness of drug enforcement efforts in Europe, and modifications to the No Child Left Behind Act. News items discuss policy choices for the Gulf Coast region, food allergy diagnosis and treatment, the new U.S. health reform law, the benefits of investing in police, and the failure to halt Pakistani-based militants. Other stories commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the Pardee RAND Graduate School and describe RAND's emergence as an international organization.
