Agree to Disagree: IS IT RIGHT TO END ROE?

A civil, thoughtful debate on the merits of whether it’s right to end Roe.

The Supreme Court is poised to make a decision so controversial that even a leaked draft majority opinion can send shockwaves across the nation. In 98-pages, Justice Alito decried Roe v. Wade as “egregiously wrong from the start,” declared no right to abortion can be found in the Constitution, and sent abortion laws back to the states — about half of which have “trigger laws” that will ban abortion almost immediately upon Roe’s demise. Exactly how likely is this draft opinion to become the law of the land? What would overturning such a landmark ruling mean for the Court as an institution? And are the Justices ultimately correct in holding that Roe was simply wrong? 


For the motion: Sarah Isgur, an attorney, political strategist, and former spokesperson for the Department of Justice.


Against the motion: Mary Ziegler, an expert on the law, history, and politics of reproduction, health care, and conservatism in the United States from 1945 to the present.

Agree to Disagree: CAN SMALL INVESTORS BEAT THE STREET?

How do “meme stock” retail investors measure up to the Wall Street professionals today?

In a modern-day battle of David and Goliath on Wall Street, thousands of amateur retail investors banded together to bid up stocks in a handful of failing companies, most notably the nostalgic video game hub known as GameStop. Within days, the renegade traders sent stocks soaring and dealt heavy blows to hedge funds and other traditional professional investors who had bet against the companies. The “meme stock” phenomenon was born. But where does “revolution” stand a year later?

In this “Agree to Disagree,” the Wall Street Journal’s award-winning investment columnist Spencer Jakab, and Tom Sosnoff, founder and Co-Ceo of the tastytrade financial network, take on the meme stock debate head-to-head.
