Tyler Cowen - Trump Hurts U.S. Exports in the Marketplace of Ideas
"It is often suggested, by Senator Bernie Sanders among others, that the U.S. should become more like Denmark, with higher taxes, stronger social protections and tougher regulation. Maybe that would increase economic security for many Americans — but it also could make the U.S. economy less dynamic and innovative, by limiting incentives and transferring resources away from the private sector. American innovations — smartphones, medical devices, entertainment and so on — spread around the world. As a general rule, when evaluating a policy for the U.S., the focus first should be on America as a global ideas generator and distributor" 
Why shouldn't the focus first be on taking better care of Americans? 
"And since Trump took office, America has lost much of its global standing. It is no longer considered a beacon of tolerance and democracy, and is seen as uninterested if not hostile to much of the rest of the world. A Gallup poll in early 2018 found that global confidence in U.S. leadership never has been lower, and China now stands in higher overall favor." 
Agreed, Trump is not making America great again in the eyes of the world, only in the eyes of backward looking Trump supporters.

Economic Opinions Depend Largely on Party - Bias is bad for both but R's look worse than D's. Fox News? Skin Color of the President?

The definitive ranking of 2020 Democrats - Biden? Cillizza and Enten should be banished from the American political scene for this article alone.

Fake News

Good post here...Why I’m Not Worked Up About “Fake News” And Why I Am

I feel so dumb, I once thought Stossel was a smart guy (well, I was 15). Anyway, Lots of lies and misinformation here. Put the Social Security tax on incomes over $130,000, raise incomes taxes on those who make over $250,000, move to Medicare For All and both programs take care of themselves over time.  Stossel can go fuck himself.

Absolute bullshit propaganda found on Drudge here:  Mainstream media tries to 'rewrite history' to credit Obama for Trump accomplishments. Zero facts offered. A quote from IBD? Just a headline to make the Trumpers hate the media. Jennifer Harper should be branded a propagandist.

Here are a couple of charts. the first is US unemployment. the second is the SP500. Could you pick out the Trump Years if they weren't labeled?

Speaking of interfering in US politics



You might be a redneck.... If your town has a dollar store.


I need some Music after that.
