Reportedly, Ginsburg has told key Democratic members of the Senate about her medical condition, including ranking Democratic member of the Judiciary Committee Dianne Feinstein. According to Observer Staff Writer Stan Greene: This explains in part the "take no prisoners" attitude of the Democrats during the Kavanaugh nomination, carefully orchestrating weak 37-year-old allegations against Kavanaugh by Women he barely remembers knowing in high school and college.

Economist Mom Explains Obama Era Fiscal and Economic Policy swinn Tue, 11/13/2018 - 10:11
Having entered the White House in the midst of the Great Recession, then President Obama spent much of his time in office trying to deal with the weakened economy. Tax cuts and stimulus spending measures contributed to high federal deficits for several years.
Diane Lim, a principal at District Economics Group and former chief economist for The Concord Coalition, discussed those years and the challenges they brought in her latest Economist Mom segment on Facing the Future.
She joined Chase Hagaman and Concord Coalition Executive Director Robert L. Bixby to discuss fiscal and economic policies during the Obama administration. The previous Economist Mom segment focused on fiscal policies in the Clinton and George W. Bush administrations.
In response to the Great Recession, Washington under the Obama administration began stimulus spending to kickstart the economy.
This, along with other policies and revenue losses from the economic slowdown, led to a budget deficit of $1.41 trillion, or 9.8 percent of the economy, in 2009. In 2010 the deficit was $1.29 trillion, amounting to 8.7 percent of the economy.
To put the nation on stronger fiscal footing and bolster investor confidence that the U.S. could manage its growing debt, Obama created the bipartisan National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, known colloquially as the Simpson-Bowles commission.

The Future Money Trends data research team has its finger on the pulse of the North American cannabis community, and were seeing more heated activity than weve ever seen before its actually breaking records in terms of sales and revenues. With earnings season in full swing, fund managers are loading up on cannabis stocks in anticipation of blockbuster profits.
You really cant blame them for taking positions in marijuana stocks right now, as the industry is experiencing multiple tailwinds and investors are reaping the rewards. First we witnessed the passage of Canadas Bill C-45, also known as the Cannabis Act, which made cannabis fully legal for adults throughout the nation; after Uruguay, Canada was the first country to do this.
What followed Bill C-45 stunned even the most optimistic analysts: huge demand and supply shortages created a bottleneck where people had to wait in long lines at dispensaries, and Websites were down because of the massive traffic. Sales figures went through the roof, and marijuana stocks rose sharply as fund managers scrambled to get in on the action.
And if that werent enough, the United States received its own share of fantastic news, not once but twice. First, the states of Utah and Missouri joined a total of 33 U.S. states in approving the medical use of cannabis; then Michigan voted to legalize recreational cannabis, making it the tenth U.S. state to do so.
At the same time, in the U.S., the resignation of anti-marijuana Attorney General Jeff Sessions paved the way for legalization at the federal level in the near future. For pro-legalization advocates and cannabis stock investors alike, you just couldnt ask for a better ending to a banner year for the North American cannabis movement.
As suppliers work out solutions to meet the heavy demand for cannabis products, the supply bottleneck will continue to be closely monitored by the investment community. What were already seeing, however, is that the smart money (fund managers who have access to massive amounts of data and analysis) is taking big positions in selected cannabis stocks.
To give you just one example, Bruce Campbell of StoneCastle Investment Management Inc. has been repositioning his portfolio in anticipation of a tremendous earnings season for cannabis companies...

According to the Nikkei Asian Review, Honda Motor Company will expand the output of its Acura luxury vehicles in China by shifting production overseas for its SUV model, rather than importing it from the US.
The shift in production could be problematic for the companys Anna, Ohio engine plant; the all-wheel-drive system plant in Russells Point, Ohio; its transmission plant in Tallapoosa, Georgia; and the SUVs assembly line located in East Liberty, Ohio, which have been supplying parts and finished vehicles to the worlds second-largest economy.

Only Jews Can Tell The Truth About Israel
Imagine what would happen to Chomsky if he were a white gentile
Chomsky Warns of the Rise of Judeo-Nazi Tendencies in Israel
November 12, 2018 Information Clearing House Prominent Jewish intellectual Noam Chomsky has raised concerns over what he believes is the rise of Judeo-Nazi tendencies in Israel. Speaking to i24NEWS last week, the renowned political dissident, linguist and scholar repeated warnings given by Yeshayahu Leibowitz, an Israeli public intellectual, biochemist and polymath, concerning the dehumanising effect of Israels brutal occupation of Palestine on the victims and the oppressors.
Chomsky commented on remarks by Leibowitz who was nominated for the Israel Prize saying that Leibowitz warned that if the occupation continues, Israeli Jews are going to turn into what he called, Judeo-Nazis. Chomsky recognised the description was a strong term and that most people wouldnt be able to get away with describing Israel in this manner but explained that Leibowitzs status meant that he was able to speak about Israel without incurring fury.
Leibowitz who passed away in 1994 in Jerusalem, cautioned that the state of Israel and Zionism had become more sacred than Jewish humanist values and controversially went on to describe Israeli conduct in occupied Palestinian territories as Judeo-Nazi in nature.
Outraged by Israels killing of 60 villagers of Qibya in 1953,
most of whom were women and children by the notorious Israeli
commando Unit 101, known for its brutality and retribution
campaigns, Leibowitz has been quoted as saying:
We have to ask ourselves where this youth of ours emerged from; young people who had no mental inhibitions about committing this atrocity? What inner motivation for such acts could have been at work here? This youth is not a mob but the product of Zionist, humanist social education.
Echoing Leibowitz, Chomsky said: If you have your jackboot on somebodys neck, you have to find a way to justify it. Repeating Leibowitzs warning he added that blaming the victim was a direct reflection of the continued occupation, the humiliation of people, the degradation, and the terrorist attacks by the Israeli government.
The former MIT linguist said that being critical of the occupation in Israel today means being labelled a traitor, a phenomenon which has caused the left to virtually disappear from the political spectrum. He pointed to opposition to the situation in the Gaza Strip, which he likened to a concentration camp, as an example of the delegitimisation of the left.
Take Gaza. If you are going to place two million people in a concentration camp, which is in effect what it is, and put them under a vicious siege, you have to ask yourself; am I justified in doing this? People who try to oppose it are traitors, Arab lovers and so on. You have seen t...
More records tumbled in the UK labour market this summer. On jobs, we had good news on quantity and quality as the people in full-time employment reached a record high of nearly 24 million. And this record high is all the more striking as it came alongside a record fall in the number of EU migrants in employment.
Weve had small falls in the number of EU migrants working in Britain before, most recently in the wake of the financial crisis. But the recent fall is both sustained (taking place over two successive quarters) and sharper (falling by 4.5 per cent) than at any point since 1997. This rapid fall has been driven by workers from the EU A8 countries the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia who also drove the rapid increase in migration after joining the EU in 2004.
It might just be that nearly two decades of virtually uninterrupted growth in the number of EU migrant workers is coming to an end.
The obvious conclusion to draw from this is that it has been driven by the vote to leave the European Union in 2016. And in some respects that is correct. The weakening of the pound (and subsequent inflation spike) following the referendum result has made it more expensive to move to the UK to live and work. EU migrants currently here may also feel the country is less welcoming than it once was, while those considering a move to the UK may worry about their status after the country leaves the EU.
But broader economic and demographic forces are also at play. Improving economic conditions in the EU, the catching up of living standards in Eastern Europe, and the fact that the big expansions of free movement (in 2004 and 2014) were some time ago are also responsible. In some re...
A Civil War Lesson for the Uneducated
Paul Craig Roberts
In response to my short essay on November 9 ( https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2018/11/09/the-prevalence-of-myth-over-history/ ), a reader sent me a link to secession documents that implicated slavery, not the tariff, as the reason for Southern secession. It is typical for the uneducated to come across a document of which they have no understanding and to send it off with a rude got you note to one who does understand the document.
I have explained the Southern states secession from the union in
long essays. See:
https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2017/08/28/weaponization-history-journalism/ and https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2017/09/18/whatever-happened-america/ and https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2015/04/13/power-lies/ and https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2017/08/21/trump-american-history-assassinated/ .
When the Southern states seceded, they were concerned to do so legally or constitutionally under the Constitution so that the North could not legally claim that it was an act of rebellion and invade the Southern states. To make this case, the South needed to make a case that the North had broken the Consltitutional contract and that the South was seceding because the North had not kept to the Constitution.
This presented a legal challenge for the South, because the reason for which the Southern states were seceding was the tariff, but the Constitution gave the federal government the right to levy a tariff. Therefore, the Southern states could not cite the tariff as a breach of the Constitutional fabric.
Slavery was the only issue that the South could use to make a legal case that it was not in rebellion. Article 4 of the US Constitution reads: No person held to service or labor in one State, under the laws thereof, escaping into another, shall, in consequence of any law or regulation therein, be discharged from such service or labor, but shall be delivered up, on claim of the party to whom such service or labor may be due. In defiance of Article 4, some Northern states had passed laws that nullified the Fugitive S...

The main issue is that government spending has shifted away from productive investments which create jobs (infrastructure and development) to primarily social welfare and debt service which has a negative rate of return. As I showed on Friday, according to the Center On Budget & Policy Priorities, nearly 75% of every tax dollar goes to non-productive spending..However, these sugar highs are temporary in nature. The problem is the massive surge in unbridled deficit spending which provides the temporary illusion of economic growth simply pulls forward future consumption leaving a void that must be filled.

Both reasoning from behavioral-economic first principles, and my personal experience, people are at their most evil out of fear, not greed. Growth means there is less fear going around.
I have a different take on growth is good for harmony (52-53). Arrows theorem doesnt become more or less true if a conflict is between, say (+5, +1) vs (+1, +5) or (+2, -2) vs (-2, +2). Rather, the reason why the latter is more disharmonious is loss aversion.
Redistributing money to the rich (p88) is risky because the rich are not necessarily aligned with general population. Caring for old people (p91) is valuable not just for the sake of present individuals, but also as a commitment to future old people who are present-day workers.

From Tim Wu, in a recent NYT Op-Ed, he presents a polemic against monopoly:
Postwar observers like Senator Harley M. Kilgore of West Virginia argued that the German economic structure, which was dominated by monopolies and cartels, was essential to Hitlers consolidation of power. Germany at the time, Mr. Kilgore explained, built up a great series of industrial monopolies in steel, rubber, coal and other materials. The monopolies soon got control of Germany, brought Hitler to power and forced virtually the whole world into war.
To suggest that any one cause accounted for the rise of fascism goes too far, for the Great Depression, anti-Semitism, the fear of communism and weak political institutions were also to blame. But as writers like Diarmuid Jeffreys and Daniel Crane have detailed, extreme economic concentration does create conditions ripe for dictatorship.
The first ten words are already a give-away, as is the beginning of the second cited paragraph. For contrast, this is from Thomas Childers, well-known historian of Nazi Germany:
In his biography of Henry Kissinger, historian Niall Ferguson notes that old man Thyssen that is, German steel magnate Fritz Thyssen bankrolled Hitler. Businessmen such as Thyssen using their financial assets to assist the Nazis was the mechanism by which Hitler was funded to come to power, according to John Loftus, a former U.S. attorney who prosecuted Nazi war criminals.
But the Nazis were neither financed nor bankrolled by big corporate donors. During its rise to power, the Nazi Party did receive some money from corporate sources including Thyssen and, briefly, industrialist Ernst von Borsig but business leaders mostly remained at arms length. After all, Nazi economic policy was slippery: pro-business ideas swathed in socialist language. The partys program, the...

We have definitely deviated from the script. According to virtually all of the experts, the stock market was not supposed to keep plummeting in November. This was supposed to be the month when the market calmed down and things returned to normal. But instead, November is starting to look a whole lot like October, and many investors are really starting to freak out. U.S. stocks declined for a third day in a row on Monday, and all post-election gains have now been completely wiped out. The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost another 602 points, and all of these large daily losses are really starting to add up. It may still be a bit too early to call this a major financial crisis, but if stock prices keep plunging like this it wont be too long before all hell starts breaking loose on Wall Street.
Goldman Sachs, GE and California utility stocks were some of the biggest losers on Monday, but it was Apple that made the biggest news
Investors grew concerned after Wells Fargo analysts identified Apple as the unnamed customer that optical communications company Lumentum Holdings said was significantly reducing orders. The news sent Apples stock down 5 percent for the day. Lumentum shares plunged almost 33 percent.
Shares in other major tech stocks fell. Advanced Micro Devices gave up 9.51 percent, while Nvidia fell 7.84 percent. Micron Technology lost 4.27 percent. Banks and consumer-focused companies, and media and communications stocks also took heavy losses.
All along, tech stocks had been leading the bull market on the way up, but now things have completely shifted.
In recent weeks tech stocks have been absolutely cratering, and several of the biggest names are now officially in bear market territory. The following summary comes from Wolf Richter

Channel 4 (or at least some of it) is off to Leeds. Some staff may be relishing the move, some may have wanted to move to Manchester or Birmingham, while others may have just wanted to stay put. Despite the mixed feelings one thing is undisputed; Channel 4 staff are now part of an increasingly small group. The latest data suggests that the share of people relocating within their firm for work is at the lowest rate recorded since the eve of the financial crisis in 2007.
Previous Resolution Foundation research has drawn attention to the apparent decline in regional mobility. This article extends this research by drawing upon a different dataset, one that allows us to distinguish moves by people in the same, or different, job. We can see who is responsible for the decline in regional mobility and Figure 1 suggests that it is people in the same job.
In 2017 just 1.6 per cent of employees moved region of work while remaining in the same job, down from a high of 2.6 per cent in 2003. 2017 was also the first time that the number of people moving region and switching jobs (401,000) exceeded the number remaining in the same position (394,000). What accounts for this decline?
Are fewer firms expanding in London and the South East because of rising costs in and around the capital? No, we find no evidence that London has become a less attractive place to relocate to. Although within-firm regional job moves have declined across the country they have fallen the most outside London, the South and East. More people moved to London in 2016 than in any of the previous 15 years (although numbers have dropped off a bit in 2017), clearly Channel 4s move to Leeds is the exception rather than the norm.
It could be that younger people today are less willing to relocate with their firm. Other data suggests that job to-job move rates have declined most for people under 30 and so perhaps whats true about job-to-job moves is also true for within-firm relocation. On the contrary, the sharpest falls in moves have been for older workers remaining in the same job. Around 100,000 fewer workers 35 and over changed their region of work last year compared 2003, despite the fact that that the number of employees 35 and over increased by 200,000. Furthermore this isnt about age; using data on total mo...

We all see ourselves as in control of our technology. It was meant to help us and make our lives better. Instead, most of us have become captives of devices and apps we cant bear to live without.
Your attention is a valuable and scarce commodity. Its the currency that most technology companies are fighting for every day. They invest heavily in creating cleverly designed notifications and algorithms to keep you coming back for more. And theyve succeeded.
We check our smartphones every twelve minutes while were awake. Endless scrolling. Addictive casino techniques. Heavily researched colors and sounds. Each is engineered to make us want to check our devices.
This kills our ability to concentrate. We lose our best thoughts when we are constantly distracted away from them.
The reality is, our thoughts are under attack. Our research shows that we spend one eight-hour workday, each week, just checking notifications on our devices. A large majority of adult American consumers say that notifications keep them from doing their best work.

Boston, NYC, DC, Seattle, Bay Area, LA and San Diego. What do those 7 metro areas have? Whats their secret sauce?
Aaron Renn discusses the recent (rumored) Amazon decision to add headquarters in NYC and the DC area, and has a number of interesting observations:
Amazon chose not one but two elite coastal cities for its new headquarters.
Theres no other way to slice it: Amazon repudiated the heartland with this decision. This was probably the ideal case for a heartland choice. It was not just a small executive headquarters but a gigantic number of employees. And Amazon, having lower margins than say Google, has to be much more cost conscious. My own analysis turned on the question of whether or not Amazon would be concerned about costs. I thought they would be, but it turns out they didnt care. No matter what subsides Amazon extracts from New York and Virginia, they certainly wont offset the labor cost differentials in those locations.
Why not Chicago or Austin?
As one person tweeted, A friend is the founder of a fintech company. They want to hire more college graduates to their Austin office instead of NYC. New talented recruits have multiple offers & most want to be in NYC, not Austin. Austin isnt exactly a horrible place to live.
At this level, cost is essentially irrelevant at present. The ability to attract A+ caliber talent is all.
Thats not to say heartland places cant be successful in many ways. But it wont be at the elite tiers of the economy.
The Biggest Loser
The biggest loser in this is Chicago. Chicago had the urban location, transit, a great pipeline of talent from the Big Ten, and lower costs. Thats why I picked Chicago as the favorite in my analysis. It checked every box at some level and had lower costs than the coasts to boot.
Im too close to this to see the problem. I grew up in the Midwest, at a time when the Midwest was quite prosperous. I attended the University of Wisconsin and then Chicago. The Windy City trails NYC in cultural sophistication, but it doesnt trail the other 6 coastal stars in that regard. Illinois has budget problems, but Texas doesnt. Why dont they like us?
My wife told me Im asking a silly question. Of course the elite talent want to be on the coast, how could anyone think otherwise? She has an Asian perspective, specifically Chinese. In China, everyone wants to be in the sophisticated coastal cities, not the backward interior. The Chinese associate the US East Coast with sophisticationIvy League universities, etc. Id guess the same is true of Indian immigrants.

It turns, out, to my relief, and probably to yours, that the Democrats ended up winning something very much like a wave. Ahhh. And yet, I cant help but wonder: if this is the bestand maybe lastchance to say America from authoritarianismdo they know what to do with that power? Will they squander it again? Or will they use it genuine courage and strength? After all, my friendsthe stakes are these: this is probably it. If the Democrats dont use the power the people have given them well, as if to say, here! fix this broken republic!to repair democracy, well, that might be it for democracy.
Perhaps you think I overstate the case. Very well. Just today, the head of state openly repudiated the most basic democratic mechanismsthrow away those votes!! I dont like the result!! So imagine how strangeif eye-rollingly predictableI found the following fact: at the very same time, the head of the opposition was calling forcompromise. If you think theres a problem within a problem here, youre not wrong.
American needs a loud, proud, uncompromising, demanding, and transformative opposition at this crucial juncture, my friendsone which accomplishes something in particular: a new social contract. What else is this wave asking for? Anything less is failing the moment, the opportunity, the challenge, and the testof collapse. Trying to fight authoritarianism with gentle compromises and winsome diplomatic smiles is like offering your abuser tea and crumpets. America needs an opposition that can really defeat authoritarianism. But will it get one?
To think about that question, I want to reduce American political economy to its brutal basics. What isnt discussedever, stillin America is the basic reality, the fundamental question: how do you defeat authoritarianism? Fascism? Extremism in general? Really undo it, dismantle itnot just throw a wrench here and there in its works?
Heres how you dont do it. Compromise. You cant compromise with extremistsand especially not the alliance of extremists that arises amidst the charred ruins of a nation, which is whats happening in America, everyone from kleptocrats to theocrats to authoritarians to bone fide Nazis joining hands, circling a wounded democracy like vultures.

In Sunset Park, a waterfront neighborhood in central Brooklyn, nearly 30% of residents live below the poverty line. The neighborhood has dealt with a history of environmental burdens, particularly due to an expressway that runs above one of its main streets. For residents, high energy costs compound the air quality concerns produced by passing traffic and the presence of three nearby fossil fuel plants. A new initiative, though, is working to bring renewable energy to the neighborhoodand following a cooperative ownership model thats helped stabilize energy prices in rural America.

Once completed, it will be one of the first examples of a cooperatively owned urban power supply, and potentially a model for other city coalitions to follow when looking for mutually beneficial ways to repurpose public rooftops as communal solar energy sources.

I suppose we shouldnt be surprised by any of this, but it was a bit shocking to see it splashed across the mainstream financial news headlines: Former J.P. Morgan Chase Trader Pleads Guilty to Manipulating US Metals Markets for Years! Reportedly, 13-year JP Morgan veteran John Edmonds recently pleaded guilty to one count of commodities fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, price manipulation, and spoofing.
Evidently, Edmonds admitted that he had conspired with other JP Morgan traders to manipulate the prices of gold, silver, platinum, and palladium futures contracts from the years 2009 through 2015.
He did so by engaging in a practice known as spoofing: placing orders and then quickly canceling them before the trades were executed an illicit price-distorting practice.

Hard Budget Work Awaits Lame Duck and New Congress swinn Mon, 11/12/2018 - 10:29
Returning to Washington this week, Congress and President Trump face a pile of leftover budget work that they should try to complete with a greater sense of fiscal responsibility than they have shown in the recent past.
Even if the outgoing Congress can resist the temptation of a lame-duck borrowing spree, however, the new Congress elected last week will inherit massive fiscal problems that procrastination will only make more difficult to solve.
Just the day after the election, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) issued a wrap-up of the last fiscal year that serves as a timely reminder of the rapid deterioration of federal finances.
In Fiscal Year 2018, which ended on September 30, the federal budget deficit totaled $779 billion $113 billion more than the shortfall recorded in 2017, the CBO report said. The deficit increased to 3.8 percent of the nations gross domestic product (GDP) in 2018, up from 3.5 percent in 2017 and 3.2 percent in 2016.
The budget office said the 2018 deficit would have been even worse -- $823 billion, or 4.1 percent of GDP -- were it not for timing shifts in certain federal payments.
Of particular concern: Total government revenue rose by less than 1 percent in the last fiscal year, despite a booming economy that would normally have provided a much bigger revenue boost. Not surprisingly, the tax cuts enacted last year are not paying for themselves.
On the spending front, elected officials have done nothing to put the big entitlement programs on sustainable paths, a job that becomes more and more urgent as the result of the aging population and rising health care costs.
More government borrowing, combined with rising interest ra...

Why White Gentiles Cant Get Admission to Ivy League Universities
Paul Craig Roberts
If you are a top ability student, but white, especially white male, you have scant chance of being admitted to Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, Dartmouth, Cornell, Brown, Penn, Stanford, MIT, CalTech, Berkeley, or UCLA.
The reason whites cannot gain admission is that in the entirety of the Ivy league, Jews are over-represented, relative to the pool of high ability students, by 381%. High ability Asians are under-represented at 62%, and non-Jewish whites are most under-represented of all with a presence in the Ivy League of only 35% of their presence in the pool of high ability students. The Asians are suing Harvard for discrimination, but any such action by whites would be dismissed as an act of white supremacy.
At MIT and Stanford, Jews are also over-represented. At CalTech it is Asians, and at Berkeley and UCLA it is a combination of Jews and Asians. The over-representation is with reference to the pool of high ability students. Equally or better qualified whites are passed over in favor of admission of others.
These are the conclusions of Ron Unz: http://www.unz.com/runz/american-pravda-racial-discrimination-at-harvard/
Unz reports that in the past three decades, at Harvard the presence of white Gentiles has dropped by as much as 70 percent, despite no remotely comparable decline in the relative size or academic performance of that population; meanwhile, the percentage of Jewish students has actually increased. This period certainly saw a very rapid rise in the number of Asian, Hispanic, and foreign students, as well as some increase in blacks. But it seems rather odd that all of these other gains would have come at the expense of whites of Christian background, and none at the expense of Jews.
It couldnt be more clearly stated that in America white gentiles are being excluded from the universities that create the elites.
Unz explores the statistics further and concludes:
Based on these figures, Jewish students were roughly 1,000% more likely to be enrolled at Harvard and the rest of the Ivy League than white Gentiles of similar ability. This was an absolutely astonishing result given that under-representation in the range of 20% or 30% is often treated by courts as powerful prima facie evidence of racial discrimination. Furthermore, I noted the possibility that this discrepancy might be related to the overwhelming Jewish dominance of the top administration of those institutions.
It would be unreasonable to ignore the salient fact that this massive apparent bias in favor of far less-qualified Jewish applicants coincides with an equally massive ethnic skew at the topmost administrative ranks of the universities in question, a situation which once again exact...

So what was the information that was finally declassified? It was written confirmation that John Brennan ordered CIA hackers to intercept the emails of all potential or possible intelligence community whistleblowers who may have been trying to contact the Congressional oversight committees, specifically to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Simply put, Brennan ordered his people to hack into the Senate email systemagain. Grassley is the longtime chairman of Judiciary Committee, and he was understandably appalled. But Brennan and Clapper classified the notification. It was like a taunt. Sure, Im spying on Congress, which is illegal. But its classified, so what are you going to do about it?
And then it was 11:00 A.M., the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. I was the only audience for the greatest show ever presented. On both sides of no-mans-land, the trenches erupted. Brown-uniformed men poured out of the American trenches, gray-green uniforms out of the German. From my observers seat overhead, I watched them throw their helmets in the air, discard their guns, wave their hands. Then all up and down the front, the two groups of men began edging toward each other across no-mans-land. Seconds before they had been willing to shoot each other; now they came forward. Hesitantly at first, then more quickly, each group approached the other.
Suddenly gray uniforms mixed with brown. I could see them hugging each other, dancing, jumping. Americans were passing out cigarettes and chocolate. I flew up to the French sector. There it was even more incredible. After four years of slaughter and hatred, they were not only hugging each other but kissing each other on both cheeks as well.

California has been absolutely devastated by horrific wildfires in recent years, but the state has never seen anything quite like this. At this moment, three major wildfires are raging, and the Camp Fire in Butte County is already officially the most destructive wildfire in California history. Thousands of firefighters are desperately trying to contain this fire, but they havent had much success. More than 6,700 structures have already been destroyed, and that shatters the all-time record that was set just last year. In fact, five of the ten most destructive wildfires in California history have happened within the last two years. The Camp Fire and the two mammoth fires in southern California have forced hundreds of thousands of people to evacuate from their homes, and authorities are warning that devil winds of up to 40 miles per hour could accelerate this crisis in the early morning hours of Monday.
The death toll from these fires continues to rise, and the numbers are being continuously updated. At this point, the latest official number of deaths is up to 31
Firefighters battled heavy winds and parched conditions throughout the day in their herculean struggle against the Camp Fire and two blazes in Southern California that have killed at least 31 people, destroyed thousands of homes and forced 250,000 to flee.
But that number is expected to increase, because there are at least 228 people that are unaccounted for right now.
Many of the headlines have been about homes of celebrities that have been destroyed, but that is only a very small part of the story.
The Camp Fire was so wildly out of control that it actually destroyed an entire town....
Lets start with some possible institutional failures in mainstream philanthropy. Many foundations have large staffs, and so a proposal must go through several layers of approval before it can receive support or even reach the desk of the final decision-maker. Too many vetoes are possible, which means relatively conservative, consensus-oriented proposals emerge at the end of the process. Furthermore, each layer of approval is enmeshed in an agency game, further cementing the conservatism. It is not usually career-enhancing to advance a risky or controversial proposal to ones superiors.
There is yet another bias: the high fixed costs of processing any request discriminate against very small proposals, which either are not worthwhile to approve or they are never submitted in the first place.
Finally, foundations often become captured by their staffs. The leaders become fond of their staffs, try to keep them in the jobs, regard the staff members as a big part of their audience, and adopt the perspectives of their staffs, more so as time passes. That encourages conservatism all the more, because the foundation leaders do not want their staffs to go away, and so they act to preserve financial and reputational capital.
To restate those biases:
So how might those biases be remedied?
Why not experiment with only a single layer of no?
Have a single individual say yes or no on each proposal final word, voila! Of course that individual can use referees and conferees as he or she sees fit.
The single judge could be an expert in some of the relevant subject areas of the proposals (that is sometimes the case in foundations, but even then the expertise of the foundation evaluators can decay).
This arrangement also can promise donors 100% transmission of their money to recipients, or close to that. If someone gives $1 million to the fund, the award winners receive the full $1 million. This is rare in non-profits. (In the case of Emergent Ventures there are unbudgeted time costs for me and my assistant, who prints out the proposals, and the paper costs of the printing get charged to general operating expenses at Mercatus. Still, a $1 million grant at the margin leads to $1 million in actual awards. I am not paid to do this.)
The solo evaluator if he or she has the right skills of temperament and judgment can take risks with the proposals, unencumbered by the need to cover fixed costs and keep the foundation up and running. Think of it as a pop-up foundation, akin to a pop-up restaurant, and you know who is the chef in the kitchen. It is analogous to a Singaporean food stall, namely with low fixed costs, small staff, and the chefs ability to impose his or her own vision...

Yet it was a cataclysmic event in its own right that both foreshadowed more intense and violent warfare in the 20th century, and fueled the growth of gargantuan central government in the United States. Most crucially, however, it was a war that should never have been fought its causal origins and assignment of guilt for same are still a hot topic of debate a century later, a fact that alone attests to its superfluity and one that, in any case, the United States should never have entered. These are disturbing theses about the war that will not be remembered by any of the global elites in Paris this weekend, but given the lessons for today, Americans should learn about them so as to demand of their Beltway solons wiser policy choices in the future. What follows is a short summary of Americas involvement in the war and lessons for today.

Since its first major upticks in membership, the question of Democratic Socialists of Americas (DSA) electoral activity has loomed large. How should socialists relate to the Democratic Party? Should establishing or operating as a third party even be an aspiration? And how can we even get there? How do we at least keep our options open? Once seemingly sectarian debate topics, are now live political questions. Some have called for establishing a third party. Others see mass volunteer canvassing as a vehicle to contest for power within the Democratic Party whilst pushing it to the Left. There is another option, hitherto unexplored in the United States: a democratized caucus within the Democratic Party.
While many in DSA have looked to the U.K. Labour Party and Scandinavian social democracy, more relevant answers may come from elsewhere. DSAs electoral activity has gained clout with Congressional primary victories from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rasheda Talib. The flames of contention over DSAs electoral activity have been fanned by NYC DSAs endorsement of Cynthia Nixon for the New York gubernatorial race, and by Ocasio-Cortezs endorsement of Andrew Cuomo. Traditional social democratic party mechanisms and structures are appearing less relevant.
DSA National Director Maria Svart asserts that at the heart of democratic socialism is the cardinal principle to democratize everything. If electoral activity is itself supposed to perform a democratizing function, then more relevant insights and applications can be derived from elsewhere: the Pirate Parties of Iceland and Germany; the...

1. Jordan Orlando on The White Album (which song is the most popular/enduring on that album? It is difficult to say, but it is now fifty years old).
4. How placebos work there is no placebo (NYT).
5. Scott Alexander is now more positive on preschool. And Scott Alexander on marijuana: If the above calculations are true, preventing national legalization of marijuana would save half as many lives as successfully implementing Australia-style gun control in the US. [Please note Scott is not suggesting a particular conclusion on either of these policy issues.]

. in addition to being the primary source of household net worth and therefore stable and growing consumption it has also been a key driver behind Chinas economic growth, with infrastructure spending and capital investment long among the biggest components of the countrys goalseeked GDP. One result has been Chinas infamous ghost cities, built only for the sake of Keynesian spending to hit a predetermined GDP number that would make Beijing happy.
Meanwhile, in the process of reflating the latest housing bubble, another dire byproduct of this artificial housing market has emerged: tens of millions of apartments and houses standing empty across the country. According to Bloomberg, soon-to-be-published research will show that roughly 22% of Chinas urban housing stock is unoccupied, according to Professor Gan Li, who runs the main nationwide study. That amounts to more than 50 million empty homes

A history of monetary value going back 6,000 years isnt
something that many asset classes can claim. While Im
certainly not against newer investment opportunities, all of my
research proves that silver and gold are must-haves in anyones
portfolio. And its not just for the safety-minded, though safety in
turbulent times is undoubtedly one of precious metal ownerships
Not only will silver and gold holdings help you sleep soundly at night when this long-in-the-tooth equities bull market comes crashing down, youll make a handsome profit as well. For reference, we can see what was in store for silver holders during the horrendous equities bear market that started in the 1970s and lasted for the better part of a decade:
While the United States was gripped in the throes of
stagflation, silver had rocketed to the mid-30s by 1980.
Gold, meanwhile, had surpassed $870 an ounce, notching all-time
highs for both of these ancient metals.
Need more historical evidence? How about the first decade of the new millennium, when U.S. equities market participants suffered the one-two punch of the Dotcom bubble burst, only to be followed up by the Great Recession a few years later. The suffering was palpable for those who held richly-valued blue-chip stocks, and especially tech stocks at that time, but silver stackers experienced what can only be described as the thrill ride of a lifetime:
