High-Turnout Early Vote Favors GOP, 2435 The Still Report

This is a paid sponsorship by: Good evening, Im still reporting on: High-Turnout Early Vote Favors GOP, 2435 Synopsis: Good morning, Im still reporting on the election. More than 35 million early votes have been counted nationwide as of Monday 60% more than the 21 million votes cast during the entire 2014 midterm election! Republican voters have outpaced Democrats in Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Montana, Tennessee and Texas. Democrat voters led only in Nevada and New Mexico. That does not bode well for the Desperate Dems because the early vote total in 2016 was much higher 46 million. Translation even though the early vote is high for a midterm, it is still dwarfed by the last Presidential race. Historically, Democrats always lead on the early voting which favors younger voters, while Republicans rely on the heavier election day voting when the older voter is used to casting their ballots. A heavy early vote for Republicans will be difficult for Democrats to overcome. Interestingly, in deep blue New Mexico, early voter turnout has broken records, but one group of traditionally Dem voters has been surprisingly absent. According to Bernalillo County Clerk Linda Stover: Women are out-voting men about two to one, which is average. [However,] millennials are still not voting. Its the older folks that are carrying more of the vote. SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS: -- Nobel Gold.

Red Wave is Coming Tomorrow, 2434 The Still Report

CLICK HERE: BillStill.com/StemCell Good evening, Im still reporting on: Red Wave is Coming Tomorrow, 2434 Synopsis: Well, the long-awaited report from my favorite poll-analyzer, Dr. Clifford Thies of the Shenandoah University School of Business in Winchester, VA is in, and Dr. Thies supports with data, our theory on the bias and skews of all the MSM pollsters which we first saw developing in the 2016 presidential election. The bottom line is that Dr. Thies sees the same basic setup this election as the 2016 election. Republicans will generally outperform the polling. That means Republicans will win almost all toss-up elections, and most of those where the Dems hold a slight lead in the polls. SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS: -- Nobel Gold.

The elections Marginal REVOLUTION

From Matt Yglesias on Twitter:

Very normal Democrats won all kinds of House races without reviving blue dog antics but also a bunch of reality checks for the capital-l Left in these results.

Not just a couple of House races where insurgent candidates fizzled, but the California rent control initiative the Washington green new deal initiative and the MD-Gov race all show limited appetite for ambitious left policy in even blue states.

Conversely, the more modest economic progressive agenda of Medicaid expansion and minimum wage increases continues to triumph even in very conservative states.

From Angus:

over the past 21 midterm elections, the Presidents party has lost an average 30 seats in the House, and an average 4 seats in the Senate NY Times sez its R 26 in House and + 2-5 in Senate. Yet they call it A rebuke to Trump. Thats kind of just wishful thinking.

Somehow miraculously democracy did not die, I am still writing blog posts for tomorrow morning, fascism has yet to arrive, and life goes on!

p.s. the youth vote was not up much.  And at least one Kremlin mole has been ousted.

Did America Just Save Itself From the Bad Guys? Stories by umair haque on Medium

The Difficult and Subtle Meaning of the Midterms

It wasnt the crushing defeat many fearedyet nor was it fully the triumphant victory democracy needed. Not a catastrophebut also not a landslide. So what was it? To make sense of the midterms, were going to have think in less polarized, binary terms. It was a complex, subtle outcome, which demands a more thoughtful interpretation. Heres mine.

Youre free-climbing El Capitan. Wham! Suddenly, you find yourself slippingand then miraculously, at the very last moment, slamming a hand back into the rock, you stop the plunge. You didnt fall off. Whoosh! Relief. Adrenaline. Blood on fire. Heart pumping a thousand times a minute. But. You still havent made it to the top, where you can take a deep breath, relax, let those burning muscles recover. The forces of gravity, wind, and weariness are still pulling you down, down, down every second. How many more mistakes can you afford? Thats where America is today.

(Now, if youre the kind of person who wants to bask in a euphoric post-election glow, please (I mean it) stop reading right about here. Go and have a fun day, celebrate, party. I wouldnt blame you. Its been a rough few years. If, on the other hand, you want to think about all this unflinchingly, then read on. And let me add at the outset that nothing I have to say will be relative to the usual frames, ideas, or expectations youll find on cable news, which are largely meaningless when youre fighting for the life of a democracy.)

It wasnt a blue wave. It was more like a blue whimper. Democrats won a narrow majority in the lower house, while Republicans strengthened their majority in the upper house. Democrats won some surprising governorships, while losing more elsewhere. This is hardly the stuff of a tidal wave, a grand shift in politics. So what is it? Its something more like the most barely adequate minimum, a leaky wooden lifeboat on a stormy sea, the least possible salvaged at the last possible moment.

It wasnt a stinging rebuke of authoritarianism. Lets cut through the political noise and put in harder terms. Democracy retained one half of the legislature. But extremists have still captured the executive, judiciary, and the other half of the legislature. Really repudiating authoritarianism would have meant something more like taking the Senate, winning by a much larger margin in the House, and winning those hotly contested governorships, every one. It would have meant sending a clear message that authoritarianism is not welcome here.

It wasnt a stinging rebuke of the politics of hate, aka fascism (nativism, if you need a pacifier.) Its true that minorities and women and women minorities made historical inroads, and thats a wonderful thing. But that is largely in places where they had a cultural and social chance to. Largely, v...

The Mobbing Game Marginal REVOLUTION

Klaus Abbink and Gnl Dogan have a horrific new paper. Horrific because despite being in a safe, experimental setting the results are all too realistic:

We introduce the experimental mobbing game. Each player in a group has the option to nominate one of the other players or to nominate no one. If the same person is nominated by all other players, he loses his payoff and the mob gains. We conduct three sets of experiments to study the effects of monetary gains, fear of being mobbed, and different types of focality. In the repeated mobbing game, we find that subjects frequently coordinate on selecting a victim, even for modest gains. Higher gains make mobbing more likely. We find no evidence that fear of becoming the victim explains mobbing. Richer and poorer players are equally focal. Pity plays no role in mobbing decisions. Ingroup members introduced by colours are less likely to be victims, and both payoff difference and colour difference serve as strong coordination devices. Commonly employed social preference theories do not explain our findings.

In short, the authors give experimental participants an opportunity to nominate a victim and redistribute towards themselves. Willingness to do this is common even in cases where the victims lose a lot and the bullies gain only a little. In some cases, the redistribution increases social welfare but these are also the cases where the bullies get a lot. Overall, its pretty clear that motivation is greed rather than increased social welfare but it would have been good to have an experiment that distinguished better the greed and social welfare cases. Importantly, distinguishing one of the players by making them poorer/richer/yellow also increased mobbing of that player.

I loved this footnote:

The labels [M,T, G, P] are also a hidden homage to the inmates Mather, Travers, Greenhill and Pearce, who escaped from a Tasmanian prison camp in a group of eight in 1822, only to get lost in the forest. When food ran out, the four conspired to apply the Custom of the Sea to the others. When no-one else was left, they turned to killing and eating one another, until only Pearce survived. All victims were chosen in decidedly non-random ways. This story is one of the great Australian foundation myths, and it was an inspiration for this study (for a dramatic reconstruction, see Van Diemens Land (2009)). We are confident that none of our Northern European subjects made that connection.

Now That America Has Given The Crazies Control Of The House, They Plan To Hit Trump With A Wave Of Subpoenas The Economic Collapse

This is a very dark moment in American history.  On November 6th, the American people gave the keys to the U.S. House of Representatives to the Democrats, and that means that the crazies will soon be unleashed on Capitol Hill.  They wont be able to get much legislation pushed through because Republicans still control the Senate and Donald Trump is still in the White House, but they will be able to cause all sorts of chaos with their investigative powers.  If you thought that things were bad the last two years, just wait, because you havent seen anything yet.  Top Democrats are already talking about hitting Trump with a huge wave of subpoenas, and the White House is bracing for the worst.  It is going to be a time of bitter partisan wrangling in Washington, and meanwhile the nation as a whole is going to continue to fall apart.

In just a couple of months, Nancy Pelosi will be speaker of the House once again.  That also means that if something suddenly happened to Donald Trump and Mike Pence, she would become the president of the United States.

Just the thought of that should chill you to the bone.

And of course Pelosi is just the tip of the iceberg.  All of the powerful House committees will now be chaired by Pelosis crazy allies, and they plan to use those positions to hurt President Trump as much as possible.

For example, Elijah Cummings will become the chair of the House Oversight Committee, and he has already been calling for the panel to issue subpoenas to the Trump administration on seven different investigations

Anonymous grant for writing in Eastern Europe.

Pledged grant to San Franciscos Topos House, conditional on finding a social science prodigy to live in the house for a while and interact with the other Topos fellows.  Topos is a San Francisco house where several tech prodigies live and periodically seminars and larger group interactions are held there or connected to the house.

Travel grant made to 18-year-old economics prodigy, to travel to San Francisco to meet with members of the rationality community.  The hope is to boost her career trajectory.

Grant to support the work of Mark Lutter and his Center for Innovative Governance Research, on charter cities and also an attempt to create a new charter city.

Grant to Harshita Aurora to help her pursue work in brain science, including brain-computer interfaces to help disabled people manipulate and move objects.  Harshita is a 17-year-old Indian prodigy, who first received attention for her programming work in the app space.  Harshita made her bio and proposal public: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1j5Zf2RIiKVUUZzJb6qGQdx2WmG7q4NS9/view

Is This "The Most Important Election of our Lives" or Just Another Distraction? oftwominds-Charles Hugh Smith

The problem isn't polarization; the problem is neither flavor of the status quo is actually solving any of the nation's most pressing system problems.
As I write this at 5 pm (Left Coast) November 6, the election results are unknown. While various media are trumpeting this as "the most important election of our lives," the less eyeball-catching, emotion-triggering reality is this election is nothing but another distraction. No matter who "wins," none of our systemic problems will be addressed, much less solved.
Does either party have the will or coherent grasp of what's broken to fix America's healthcare mess? No. The Democrats' "solution" is to take the bloated, ineffective Medicare system that incentivizes blatant fraud, overbilling and profiteering and increase the sickcare cartels' power and profits via "Medicare for All."
This is akin to giving defense contractors the power to set the Pe...

The Demise Of Bubble Finance And The Folly Of Trump-O-Nomics, Part 2 David Stockman's Contra Corner

As we indicated in Part 1, we are at a decisive pivot point and its far more consequential than the mid-term elections. Even then, we cannot but marvel at the utter complacency which still prevails in the casino.

We even heard one bubblevision talking head today suggesting that on the off-chance that the GOP retains the US House of Representatives (the Senate is virtually guaranteed to stay Republican), it will be mighty bullish for stocks. Thats because it would mean more fiscal stimulus, presumably another tax cut of the 10%/$200 billion cost variety that the Donald has been plugging out on the hustings.

We actually dont know which is more pathetic. A putative GOP controlled government that would actually  even consider adding another $200 billion on top of the $1.2 trillion Uncle Sam is already slated to borrow in the 10th year of a flagging business cycle expansionand in the face of the Feds  unprecedented $600 billion bond dumping campaignor Wall Street operators who apparently do really think that Federal borrowing is what generates economic growth and business profits.

In any event, the boys and girls in the momo trade are about to find themselves up close and personal with the great central bank Pivot soon enough. Even Kuroda-son chimed in the other day from the red hot printing presses at the Bank of Japan suggesting that the time for extraordinary monetary accommodation has now passed.

So the hand-writing is on the casinos lethargically blinking green screens. The 30-year monetary party is over, and the money printers which fueled that global bond bubble of the present era are about to become the bond-dumpers of tomorrow.

Adding to bond supply for sale rather than to demand for bonds to sequester on their balance sheets, central banks will force meaningful yields back into the bond trading pits as the latter perform their job of discovering the yield which clears the market, which most certainly will not be today 3.23% yield on the 10-year UST.

In fact,  what is fixing to happen is that bond market speculators are fixing to jump the shark. That is, the 35- year down-ward trend line, which has been in place since your editor was feverishly contemplating the desultory math of $200 billion Reagan deficits as far as the eye could see in the face of 16% UST yields.

Volcker took care of that problem, of course, by plunging the US economy into a nasty recession and wringing-out the 8% or so inflation expectation that was embedded in the bond yield shown at the upper left hand side of the chart below. Thereafter, of course, incepted the longest-running bull trade in recorded history.

And yet on election eve, the bond pits closed down just 3bps from puncturing the trend line from below; and in the face of an election that is far, far more certain than the chattering commentators even hinted at a...

US midterm elections Follow The Money

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-11-04/your-guide-to-the-united-states-midterms/10383492

In the current situation, the Democrats need to net 23 seats to win back control of the Houseand claim the 218 majority.

The New York Times estimates between 60 and 70 races are closely contested, and that realistically around 30 of those will determine whether the Democrats reclaim the house and by how much.

According to FiveThirtyEight, a leading American politics and data journalism site, Democrats have around an 85 per cent chance of success.

In the 100-seat Senate the current balance of power is very tight, with Republicans holding a narrow 51-49 majority.

To have control of the Senate the Democrats need to gain at least two seats, because Republican Vice-President Mike Pence serves as the tie-breaker when votes are tied.

Australians face $700b wealth wipe-out as debt levels rated riskiest in the world: Morgan Stanley Follow The Money

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-10-30/australia-most-country-to-risks-of-rising-household-debt/10445814

Australian households are facing a collective $700 billion cut to their wealth from the need to wind back the massive amounts of debt built up during the property boom.

In a survey of global economies, the giant US investment bank Morgan Stanley found Australias economy carried the greatest risk from cutting back on household debt.

Australia looks most exposed, combining high household and external leverage, weak domestic housing conditions and potential further macroprudential and structural/tax policy adjustments ahead, Morgan Stanley concluded.

Australias predicament is made worse by the need to cut debt occurring during a period of falling house prices and at a time when the household savings rate is a wafer-thin 1 per cent of disposable income.

Most concerning about the potential impact of a deleveraging phase for Australian households is the narrow savings buffer that i...

Fight for the Future: Whoever wins at the polls, well keep fighting to restore net neutrality Fight for the Future

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: November 6, 2018
Contact: Evan Greer, 978-852-6457, press@fightforthefuture.org

Net neutrality supporters have been hard at work educating voters and mobilizing action for the open Internet ahead of todays election, and are already planning a major push during the lame duck session after election day, ahead of the deadline for Congress to pass reverse the FCCs repeal using the Congressional Review Act (CRA).

Fight for the Future, a prominent digital rights group and one of the fiercest defenders of net neutrality, issued a blog post today looking past election day at the fight ahead. In recent weeks, the group has:

* Flooded the Internet with thousands of selfies submitted by votersincluding hundreds of first-time voterstelling the world they plan to #VoteForNetNeutrality.

* Reached millions of people with VoteForNetNeutrality.com, a tool for people to look up where candidates in their area stand and contact their representatives

* Worked with local activists to deliver a truckload of telecom money to Rep Steve Knight (who has not signed on to the CRA despite publicly opposing the FCC repeal) outside a highly publicized debate

* Launched DonateForNetNeutrality.com, a major crowdfunding campaign to fund mass online protests and in-district actions during the lame duck session, backed by well-liked web companies and celebrities like Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello, actress Evangeline Lilly, and EDM star Bassnectar.

Whoever wins at the polls today, when the dust settles and the votes are counted well be mobilizing Internet users to hit the ground running and mount a massive pressure campaign to get Congress to overrule the FCC repeal before they leave office, said Evan Greer, deputy director of Fight for the Future (pronouns: she/her), For those who were re-elected, well show them that we plan to hold them accountable. For those who were unseated, well make this a legacy issue and show them that unless they support the CRA before they leave office, they will go down in history as one of t...

When should we start worrying about inflation? TheMoneyIllusion

Jan Hatzius is now forecasting that inflation will soon exceed the Feds 2% target for the PCE:

Goldmans Jan Hatzius wrote Sunday that unemployment should continue to decline to 3% by early 2020, noting the labor market also has room to accommodate more wage growth. Hatzius predicted that average hourly earnings would likely grow in the 3.25% to 3.50% range over the next year.

That rapid pace of wage growth could set the Fed up for a meaningful overshoot of its 2% inflation target.

If unemployment is (perhaps well) below 3.50% and inflation above 2%, we think Fed officials will need to be quite confident that growth will stay at or below trend to sound an all-clear on further rate increases, which could translate into a large easing in financial conditions and a return to growth rates well above trend, Hatzius wrote.

Hatzius wrote that the economy needs to slow to avoid overheating, and worries that inflation could run away if the Fed does not take action. For now, Goldman has a baseline forecast of 2.3% for core PCE which it noted as within the Feds comfort zone but warned that inflation is poised to move higher on President Donald Trumps tariffs.

The note also warned that with the labor market continuing to tighten, inflation will likely push notably, not just slightly, higher.

Hatzius said a slowdown could stabilize the unemployment rate, and already predicts that the economy will calm to a GDP growth rate of 2.6% in the fourth quarter. But if the slowdown is not enough, unemployment could destabilize into 2020 and inflation could run rampant.

If Hatzius is correct (and I greatly respect his judgment), then Fed policy is currently too expansionary.  The Philadelphia Fed consensus forecast is for 2.1% PCE inflation in 2019 and 2020.  (Ill be very interested in the next forecast, which should be out soon.)  On the other hand, TIPS spreads continue to show sub-2% inflation over the next 5 years (once adjusted for the CPI bias) but they are subject to bias from a modest risk spread.

So what would tell me that we have an inflation problem?  Lots of news articles saying Its not that bad, because if you take out the rise in the price of X, inflation is only running at Y.  I saw literally dozens of such articles in the 1960s and 1970s, and essentially 100% of them were incorrect.

Cheesecake dreams TheMoneyIllusion

I came across some interesting tidbits while putting together a post on LA mass transit over at Econlog, which Ill share with you over here.

1.  It seems that in todays election the affluent neighborhood of Eagles Landing will try to secede from the majority black city of Stockbridge, Georgia.  (BTW, dont read black as poor and affluent as white.  Stockbridge is not a poor city, and a substantial number of affluent blacks live in Eagles Landing.)  What caught my eye is the motivation for this attempt at secession:

The Eagles Landing plan seeks to merge into its boundaries the primest real estate and wealthiest households from the city of Stockbridge, leaving behind a smaller, mostly African American population with fewer resources to pay for Stockbridge city services. The Eagles Landing city proposal will be voted on via ballot referendum on November 6, but Stockbridge residents who live outside the Eagles Landing footprintthe people who will be most hampered by the divisionare not eligible to vote on it. Meanwhile, neither lawsuits nor letters from global finance agencies warning that the proposal could wreck economies across Georgia have been able to stop it.

And the reason for tearing Stockbridge apart to start this new city? It has something to do with cheesecake. Or at least cheesecake is what was emphasized in a conversation with Vicki Consiglio, the chair of the Committee for the City of Eagles Landing, held at the Eagles Landing Country Club.

 I serve on the Henry County zoning board, said Consiglio, and so I kept seeing all of these places like Bojangles, Waffle Houses, dollar stores, and all this going up in our county. And I was like, why cant we get a Cheesecake Factory, or a P.F. Changs or a Houstons? We have areas that have high incomes, so whats the deal? . . .

According to Consiglio, The Cheesecake Factory did consider coming to Stockbridge at one point, but balked after an income study revealed that the average median income was too low to justify placing a restaurant there. Consiglio blames this on Stockbridge, where median household income is $54,769. So in 2016, Consiglio and her neighborhood colleagues, some of them former Stockbridge city officials, began meeting to figure out what they could do to land if not a Cheesecake Factory, then a Cheesecake Factory-esque restaurant, because the dining halls and pubs in the country club would no longer do....

Will a low price actually prove good for crypto? Marginal REVOLUTION

That is the topic of my latest Bloomberg column, here is one bit:

Now the time has come for crypto to go on a diet. No more easy money. No more thoughts about ICOs leading to quick riches. The rhetoric is shifting toward a more cautious or even apologetic tone. The corresponding reality can perhaps be one of greater focus and relevance.

Were at the point where crypto finally has to prove its social worth. But what might that mean? Imagine using crypto as a medium of micropayments to pay for media on the internet. Or perhaps youll use the blockchain to verify your identity, rather than telling some stranger on the phone the last four digits of your Social Security number. Or how about a system for self-executing, zero-cost contracts? (For example: I will give $10,000 to a charity if 10 other people do.) Maybe the burgeoning field of virtual reality will rely on crypto to support some of its transactions, starting with virtual sex, which the major banks might stay away from. Alternatively, I might use crypto assets to send money to Mexico, avoiding the steep charges from current money transfer systems. In the more utopian visions, crypto leads to the rise of entirely self-governing systems, powered by the blockchain.

And this:

By the way, if you are confused by the terms proof of stake and sharding (and others), that is probably a good thing. As the tech guru Stewart Brand is reported to have said, the proliferation of terminology in crypto is a sign that new ideas and possibly important new technologies are afoot.

Stay tuned

Overthrowing Capitalism, Volume Five - Now Available Grassroots Economic Organizing

Cover of Overthrowing Capitalism Volume Five by the Revolutionary Poets Brigade

 
This multilingual collection of poets from many countries reflects planetary resistance to the misery that global capitalism is relentlessly inflicting upon the peoples of the world. Anything less than an international response would not reflect the enormity of our solidarity as poets. These poems speak urgently of the international class struggle for revolution and social justice as the very essence of truth and beauty, the struggle to topple the open fascistic dimensions rising today. The poets in this anthology embody an historical memory as vast as our solidarity, as deep as all the struggles of the past that sought to liberate humanity from the scourges of war, racism, sexism, plunder of the environment, of capitalisms religion of money. Toward this same goal of overthrowing capitalism we say, with the poets in this anthology: Not one step back!

We are about to start building the menu and testing our recipes this month - we'll update the gofundme with our menu, vendors, and offerings in the following weeks.

By weaponizing the reserve currency role of the US dollar, Washington has caused countries to abandon the dollar as the means of transacting their trade and financial affairs. The illegal sanctions Washington imposes has resulted in alternatives to the dollar based clearance system. Washingtons substitution of coercion and threat for diplomacy since the collapse of the Soviet Union has undermined US power.

Mike Maloney: "One Hell Of A Crisis" Peak Prosperity

Mike Maloney: One Hell Of A Crisis

Mike Maloney, monetary historian and founder of GoldSilver.com, has just released two new chapters of his excellent Hidden Secrets Of Money video series.

In producing the series, Maloney has reviewed several thousand years of monetary history and has observed that government intervention and mismanagement -- such as is now rampant across the world -- has always resulted in the diminishment and eventual failure of currency systems.

As for the world's current fiat currency regimes, Mike sees a reckoning approaching. One that will be preceded by massive losses rippling across nearly all asset classes, destroying the phantom wealth created during the latest central bank-induced Everything Bubble, and grinding the global economy to a halt.

When The Red Ponzis Politburo Panics-You Better Take Notice! David Stockman's Contra Corner

This is a warning, not just to the Chinese people seeing the politburo admit the economy is evolving the wrong way just with respect to 2015; to say nothing about how many people still cling to the pre-crisis growth dream. US policymakers may be gloating about the US winning the trade war, but they dont realize this is a eurodollar problem for everyone including the United States.

Nobody wins the eurodollar, largely because nobody knows thats the game actually being played.  China may be first, most exposed to risk, but it wont be the only one damaged by it. The Chinese already have a lot of company, and, as disruptive as it has been to this point, it appears to be just getting started.

Cmon Kudlow/Moore/Laffer: JFK Was A Keynesian Deficit Spender, Not A Supply-Side Tax Cutter David Stockman's Contra Corner

To be fair, supply-side economic theory does have its merits, but it also has hard limits in ensuring a stable fiscal foundation. At the end of the day, cutting spending remains key. Supply-side economics and Keynesian theories are two sides of the same cointwo economic approaches advocates of government expansion use to rationalize their big spending programs.

Why Is the Fight for Free Speech Led by the Psychologists? Marginal REVOLUTION

Jeffrey Sachs (not the economist) asks, Why are psychologists so prevalent in the free speech movement?:

If any academic field is associated with the contemporary debate surrounding free speech, its psychology. Haidt, Pinker, Peterson, Saad, Jussim, even Lehmann. All specialize or have backgrounds in academic psych.

The Scholars Stage offers a good answer:

I attribute this all to three things.

1. The conclusions academics reach tend to rankle the right. There are exceptions. If your research draws on evolutionary psychology, focuses on innate behavioral differences, or touches any sort of psychometrics (e.g., IQ), the angry tide does not sweep in from the right. The wave these men and women fear crashes in from leftward side. Moreover, the sort of leftist opposition that the academic consensus on these topics face leaves little room for rational debate or compromise: controversies over psychometrics or evolutionary psychology are usually framed in terms of good and evil, not right and wrong. The scientists involved are to be conquered, not reasoned with.

So that is point one: the people who want to shut controversial psychologists up are overwhelmingly creatures of the left.

2. Psychology, especially social psychology, is itself an overwhelmingly leftist discipline. We actually have data on this, and it is pretty grim: a recent survey of American tenure-track professors reveals that there 17.4 registered Democrat psychologists for every single registered Republican.[2] If there is a field of people who ought to be sympathetic to social justice railroading, these people are it.

3. Despite this, behavioral scientists have not yet adopted the rhetorical techniques or methodology of inquiry of critical theory.  In contrast, see how these modes of inquiry have swallowed up the fields of anthropology and communications, and established creeping colonies in history, sociology, and area studies.  Given the left-leaning sympathies of almost all in the profession, the threat that the same might happen to the study of human behavior is real.

Haidt et. al. are confident they can win the debate if they are allowed to debate. For the heterodox anthropologist or sociologist the game is already over: their discipline has already been conquered. For the economist, the threat is too remote to take seriously. Behavioral science exists in that rare in-between: methodologically, it has the tools to fight back against the excesses of the activist. Socially, it provides a compelling reason for its practitioners to use them.

Good Job, Dems! Two Years Of Ragging On Trump, Nothing To Offer The Voters David Stockman's Contra Corner

In 2015 I predicted Trump would win the presidential elections. not based on his qualities so much, but the lack of qualities on Hillarys side. This time I dont want to predict the outcome of the midterms, but I just cant see the Democrats win, let alone bigly, because they have nothing to offer other than not being the man responsible for more jobs and -so far- slightly, slowly higher wages.

Consider that January 1966 is the only month since 1960 that unemployment has been below 4 percent with inflation being south of 2 percent. The Feds projections out through 2021 do not simply suggest we will go there but that we will stay there for an awfully long time. Such fairy tales would accomplish something: They would fill the empty quadrant that has but that sole occupant at the moment.

And:

while we find that experts recommend placing greater weight on normative than positive issues when determining the SDR, most believe that the SDR should be informed by both.

That is from the latest issue of American Economic Journal: Economic Policy, Discounting Disentangled by Drupp, Freeman, Groom, and Nesje.  You will of course find a lengthy discussion of these issues in my own Stubborn Attachments: A Vision for a Society of Free, Prosperous, and Responsible Individuals.

Gang update Marginal REVOLUTION

From El Salvador (WSJ):

Politicians must ask permission of gangs to hold rallies or canvass in many neighborhoods, law-enforcement officials and prosecutors said. In San Salvador, the nations capital, gangs control the local distribution of consumer products, experts said, including diapers and Coca-Cola . They extort commuters, call-center employees, and restaurant and store owners. In the rural east, gangs threaten to burn sugar plantations unless farmers pay up.

At what point do we say the government has been replaced?  On the analytics:

Weve left behind the era of the cartel and the kingpin, said Alejandro Hope, a security consultant in Mexico City. Today, most violence in Latin America is the result of a new system thats more diverse, harder to control, and much more local.

In Brazil to the south (NYT):

In Rio de Janeiro state alone, more than 5,197 people have been killed this year far more than the 3,438 civilians killed in conflict last year in Afghanistan, according to United Nations figures.

One-quarter of those may have been killed by the state, a sign of state weakness not strength.

One approach is to view all this as a problem to be solved, and surely there is something to that attitude.  Another approach, not mutually exclusive, is to view it as a problem that is getting harder to solve.

The One Election Scenario That Would Be A Disaster For The Financial Markets The Economic Collapse

On Tuesday night all of the speculation about the midterm elections will mercifully be over, and there is one potential outcome that is being called a disaster for the financial markets.  Over the past couple of years, stock prices have soared to unprecedented levels, and Wall Street has seemed to greatly appreciate the pro-business environment that President Trump has attempted to cultivate.  Regulations have been rolled back, corporate taxes have been reduced significantly, and many corporate executives no longer fear that the federal government is out to get them.  But after Tuesday, everything could be different.

The most likely outcome appears to be that the Democrats will take control of the House of Representatives and the Republicans will remain in control of the Senate.  For what it is worth, Nate Silver is currently projecting that the Democrats have an 88 percent chance of winning the House and only a 19 percent chance of winning the Senate.

But of course he was also projecting a huge landslide victory for Hillary Clinton in 2016.

In any event, a divided Congress would create gridlock in Washington, and according to Wedbush Securities managing director Steve Massocca that would produce some negative fallout for the financial markets

Steve Massocca, Wedbush Securities managing director said there could be some negative fallout from a split Congress, since Democrats would hold committee chairmen seats in the House. To what extent are they able to disrupt the Trump agenda will weigh on peoples minds, he said.

Donald Trump, the agenda, is very good for the markets. Less regulation, lower taxes, he said.

Benjamin Fulford: Global Currency Reset The Event Chronicle

By Benjamin Fulford

Dear Benjamin,

For the past few weeks your sources keep mentioning a Global Currency Reset thats supposed to happen when exactly?  And what is it all about?  Appreciation of precious metals?  And whats going on with the price of these?  Arent they still rigged?

There is also a website called usdebtclock.org that recently caught my attention.  Are the prices of gold and silver mentioned there true or what?  I invested long ago in gold and silver since you mentioned it as a good strategy and I am getting a bit distressed two years later.

Thank you for your time and effort and excuse any temper of mine.  Nothing personal with you.  Keep up the good work.

CD


Hello CD,

First of all, I do not know exactly when or if the global currency reset will take place.  It is highly placed Pentagon sources who tell me it is imminent.

As far as gold and silver are concerned, they have a track record going back thousands of years of protecting wealth.  The same amount of silver can buy the same amount of grain now that it could 4,000 years ago in ancient Sumeria.  The same amount of gold could get you a tailor-made suit in ancient Rome, 19th Century England, and present day New York.

I am not a financial adviser, but it sure looks like the stock bubble really is finally bursting now, so my advice is that if you seek to preserve your wealth, keep your precious metals or buy real estate that can earn enough rent to pay any loan and still turn a profit.

What This Election Is About PaulCraigRoberts.org

What This Election Is About

Paul Craig Roberts

I never cease to be amazed at the insouciance of Americans. Readers send me emails asking why I ever supported Trump when he was the Establishments candidate. If Trump was the Establishments candidate, why has the Establishment spent two years trying to destroy him?

The failure to put two and two together is extraordinary. Trump declared war on the Establishment throughout the presidential campaign and in his inaugural address.

As I wrote at the time, Trump vastly over-estimates the power of the president. He expected the Establishment, like his employees, to jump to his will, and he did not know Washington or who to appoint to support his goals. He has been totally defeated in his intention to normalize relations with Russia. Instead, we are faced with both Russia and China preparing for war.

In other words, the same outcome that Hillary would have achieved.

Trump has been so harassed by the Establishment that he is having trouble thinking straight. He was elected by the deplorables as the first non-Establishment candidate since when? You have to go back in history to find one. Perhaps Andrew Jackson. Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan were not the choice of the Democratic and Republican establishments, and the ruling establishments moved quickly to constrain both presidencies. The Democratic Establishment framed and removed both Carters budget director and chief of staff, depriving Carter of the kind of commitment he needed for his agenda. The Bush people that the Republican Establishment insisted be put in positions of power in the Reagan administration succeeded in blunting his reformist economic program and his determination to end the cold war. I fought both battles for Reagan, and I still have the bruises.

Trump is an outsider elected by the deplorables whose middle class jobs were offshored by Americas global corporations for the benefit only of the executives and large shareholders. A few people sold out the American middle class, which is shrinking away.

In the rest of the world, Trumps true allies are the presidents of Venezuela, Bolivia, Nicaragua, the former president of Ecuador, and the former president of Honduras, who was overthrown by Americas First Black President, the consequences of which are the caravan moving toward the US border. The Establishment has succeeded in so confusing Trump that he has declared the Establishments war against the non-establishment leaders in Latin America.

So what is this midterm US election about?

It is about whether the deplorables have been brainwashed by the Establishments media whores and fail to support Trump in the House and Senate elections. If the Democrats, whose politics is Identity Politics, get the House and/or Senate, Trump will be completely impotent. The Establishment hopes to drive the lesson home to every future presidential cand...

CEO's Simple Fix: Reform Spending and Revenue Concord Coalition

CEO's Simple Fix: Reform Spending and Revenue swinn Mon, 11/05/2018 - 18:07

Politicians do not want to address the nations debt issues because that would require both tax increases and reductions in spending on entitlement programs, said David Cote, former CEO of Honeywell.

It is just basic math that no one wants to address, he said on the latest Facing the Future program.

Cote served on the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform (Simpson-Bowles), a 2010 bipartisan panel created by then President Obama, and was a director of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

Facing the Future host Chase Hagaman was joined by Cote and Concord Coalition Executive Director Robert L. Bixby to discuss the Simpson-Bowles commissions work and changes in the economic and political climates.  

The job at hand was to develop a proposal for addressing the debt, said Cote about the fiscal reform commission. The result was a $4 trillion debt reduction package.

The package, which 11 of the 18 members of the bipartisan commission supported, never made much headway in Congress or with Obama.

If you went through the $4 trillion of ideas that we had, there certainly are things that could be picked out that could be done now, Cote said. The big items, tax simplification . . . Medicare and Medicaid have to be addressed.

If you vote for people who give you simple solutions, like We will grow our way out of it, or We just have to tax the wealthy more, they are lying to you, Cote said. If you vote for people like that then don't be surprised when the problem continues to grow.

Later on th...

The Hub Co-op: A Democratic Workplace Grassroots Economic Organizing

All types of bikes for all types of people, is the slogan for The Hub Bike Co-op in South Minneapolis. Its a simple slogan, yet it summarizes a crucial and heavily valued aspect of the shop: diversity. Not only diversity of people, but diversity of thought, experiences, and opinions. This diversity, unlike in other business models, has the opportunity to manifest itself in business decisions through cooperative thinking and consensus decision making among all of The Hubs employees.

The Hub is a worker cooperative, meaning the employees of the shop are also its owners. There are no outside shareholders or investors who dictate how the company is run, and there are no managers or bosses. The decisions are voted on democratically by either the workers or worker-owners.

It may be as simple as this: voters look at the two parties and decide that they dont want the nation to turn into a gigantic seminar on race and gender studies. The Democratic Party doesnt have a platform, it has a curriculum. The party wants to instruct everybody how to think and act. You will be tested regularly on the correctness of your thought. And if you fail or object, say goodbye to your livelihood.

The Real Collapse is Now Future Money Trends

The Walls are Coming Down, and NOW is Our Chance!

Dear Reader,

I know so many investors who get stuck in a single sector, waiting years or decades for their trades to work out.

Whether its gold, crypto, clean energy, uranium, biotech, real estate, new construction, or everything else you can think of, dont ever get stuck with or marry an asset class.

We all have to learn the same lessons when it comes to investing, and one thing I continue to re-learn is that inevitability doesnt equal imminent.

With every single asset I just mentioned above, I could give you a hundred reasons why they will inevitably rise dramatically, but you may have to own a few of them for 20+ years to see it ever pay off.

This is why I want this entire wealth-building letter to turn our attention to picking up shares of cheap cannabis stocks right now.

In my opinion, this is the only trend where you have both the inevitability of global adoption and an imminent rise of this space due to new markets opening up regularly as legalization spreads worldwide.

Buy Recommendation From Daniel Ameduri Future Money Trends

Stock Suggestion
A Cannabis Company Worth Partnering With

Dear Reader,

Quick question for you: Out of all the sectors of the economy, which one has been growing the fastest?

Its not the tech sector, which has pretty much peaked in terms of expansion. Its definitely not retail or energy, either.

If you guessed legalized cannabis, youre 100% right because this market is literally growing like a weed and theres still a ton of money to be made.

If you need proof, just look at whats happening in Canada. Since cannabis was legalized nationwide for adult recreational use on October 17, supply shortages are forcing Canadian dispensaries to close early. Online stores, meanwhile, are still trying to clear huge order backlogs and are just trying to deal with the massive influx of Web traffic.

Significant increases in order volumes immediately following legalization in Canada were expected, but not to the extent that weve been seeing.

It just goes to show what happens when a nation ends a century-old unpopular prohibition law: the demand will outstrip the supply, and plenty of money will be made by enterprising businesses, as well as savvy investors.

In time, the supply and demand will achieve a state of equilibrium; the market will always adjust to the consumer demand for the product. Naturally, that means that the producers, packagers, distributors, etc. will have to step up their game and find more efficient ways to meet the intense demand for legalized cannabis, and not just in Canada, but worldwide.
