The cover story is a feature-length Q&A with Michael Rich, Soledad O'Brien, and Francis Fukuyama on the perils of truth decay. A second feature describes the trend toward unretirement among American workers. The Voices column features Gulrez Shah Azhar on environmental refugees — the tens of millions of people around the world being displaced annually by extreme weather events and related disease. The Giving column showcases Natalie Crawford, RAND's distinguished chair in air and space policy — a philanthropically funded position that allows her to conduct independent research and to mentor the next generation of policy researchers.
