July/August Issue Is Up


The latest issue of the Washington Monthly is now live.

There are a number of interesting features in this issue. Our cover story, Mariah Blake’s “Dirty Medicine,” addresses way that group purchasing organizations undermine medical safety and increase cost. Another feature, James Verini’s “Show Him the Money,” looks at how the U.S. Chamber of Commerce operates today.

Regular College Guide readers should check out the magazine’s special report: Fighting the Dropout Crisis. The section, with pieces by Sarah Garland, Dale Mezzacappa, Betsy Hammond, and Thomas Toch, looks at the different approaches three American cities have taken to address the high school dropout problem.
