Hoover Golden State Poll: Voters Know What Road To Take On Infrastructure, May Reconsider Proposition 13, But Not Trump

Thursday, May 25, 2017
Hoover Institution, Washington DC

Now that lawmakers in Sacramento have raised California’s gas tax to pay for infrastructure repairs, the Golden State Poll asked voters what repairs they’d prefer. Having just paid their income taxes, Californians assessed their financial well-being – their finances vs their parents’, their hopes for their children, their confidence in retirement. Voters also weighed in on altering Proposition 13, the Trump presidency's prospects and its effect on California’s economy. This survey was released in conjunction with the May 2017 Issue of Eureka.

Inapplicable Insights

by Chester E. Finn Jr.via Education Gadfly (Thomas B. Fordham Institute)
Wednesday, May 24, 2017

Linda Darling-Hammond, smart as she is, doubtless has many fresh thoughts and insights. In her new book series on “empowered educators,” however, after bringing in a sizable body of information on how other countries go about it, she and a number of colleagues recycle many of their sturdiest old thoughts and insights. Subtitled “how high-performing systems shape teaching quality around the world,” they—under the aegis of a Stanford policy center and Marc Tucker’s National Center on Education and the Economy—describe in depth (via a 280-page overview treatise and multiple supplemental volumes) “how seven international educational systems create a coherent set of policies designed to ensure quality teaching in all communities.”

Has Globalism Gone Off The Rails?

by Victor Davis Hansonvia National Review Online
Thursday, May 25, 2017

About half of the population in Europe and the United States seems to want to go back to the world that existed before the 1980s, when local communities had more control of their own destinies and traditions. The Czech Republic, to take one example, joined the European Union in 2004. But it has not yet adopted the euro and cannot decide whether the EU is wisely preventing wars of the past from being repeated or is recklessly strangling freedom in the manner of the old Soviet Union — or both. In places devastated by globalization — such as southern Michigan or Roubaix, France – underemployed youth in their mid 20s often live at home in prolonged adolescence without much hope of enjoying the pre-globalized lifestyles of their parents.

An 'Arab NATO' Including Israel Can Exist If It Stays Quiet

by Yoel Guzanskyvia The Hill
Wednesday, May 24, 2017

In the past, when Arab governments joined forces it was against another common enemy — Israel. Nowadays, President Trump is expected to lay out a plan to create a so-called "Arab NATO", a force that might even have room for Israel in a later stage. In a press conference with President Donald Trump upon his visit to Washington, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, "For the first time in my lifetime, and for the first time in the life of my country, Arab countries in the region do not see Israel as an enemy, but, increasingly, as an ally".

A Coup By Any Other Name

featuring Victor Davis Hansonvia Power Line
Wednesday, May 24, 2017

Victor Davis Hanson amplifies and elaborates on the contribution of the mainstream media angle in his long, indispensable NRO column “A coup by any other name?” We are thinking along the same lines; one section of Dr. Hanson’s column is headed “Trump agonistes.” Here is the salient point regarding the media: “The effort to remove the president is conducted by the New York Times, the Washington Post, the wire services, and the major networks. And we have seen nothing like it in our time. In the last six months, Americans have been told quite falsely so many untruths about the Trump administration by their news agencies that for all practical purposes, there is no such thing as a media as we once knew it.”

Speech By President Donald Tusk At The Charlemagne Prize Ceremony 2017

Wednesday, May 24, 2017

When, a few weeks ago, Timothy Garton Ash suggested that I present the laudatio on the occasion of his receipt of the Charlemagne Prize, we could not have  predicted  that our ceremony would be held in the atmosphere of grief and rage because of a certain tragic event. Yet another crime perpetrated by Islamic terrorists seems to confirm the view that we have found ourselves at the very heart of a global civil war. However, the dominant feeling we have is, first of all, the feeling of solidarity with the victims' families and with the UK. And who knows better the meaning of “solidarity” than our laureate ? Timothy, we are with you today,  in our hearts and our thoughts, in Manchester.

The Danger Of Deflation Still Looms Over Japan

quoting Thomas J. Sargentvia Forbes
Wednesday, May 24, 2017

According to Japan’s GDP figure for the first quarter of 2017 (released on May 18), the Japanese economy has grown by an annualized real rate of 2.2%. Most welcome this as the country's longest economic expansion in 11 years. Don't be fooled by this figure. It is actually a warning sign for Japan’s policymakers. Why? Because the nominal GDP has been shrinking slightly. The gap between growing real GDP and slightly shrinking nominal GDP is, of course, deflation. GDP deflator has declined by 0.6%.

Tuesday, May 23, 2017

The fate of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and its chief, Richard Cordray, is in the hands of a Washington appeals court that will hear arguments Wednesday. The CFPB asked the court to reconsider its 2016 decision involving the agency’s punishment of New Jersey mortgage company PHH Corp. The outcome could take months. It’s expected to provide ammunition for one side or the other in the years-long tug of war over the agency’s existence.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali is the kind of person you wouldn't mind hanging out with for hours and shooting the breeze about this and that. And reading her books feels like that too. She is transparent about everything. How she expected buses to crash when she finally took off the headscarf, on account of drivers being driven mad with desire. And was rather disappointed when "nothing happened."
