by Russell Robertsvia EconTalk
Monday, September 24, 2018

Rodney Brooks, emeritus professor of robotics at MIT, talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about the future of robots and artificial intelligence.

by Alvin Rabushkavia Thoughtful Ideas
Sunday, September 23, 2018
Senator Grassley appears to be taking his cue from President Obama’s Syrian “Red Line” in moving the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh for Associate Justice of the Supreme Court through the Senate Judiciary Committee. Obama laid down a marker for President Bashar al-Assad if he used gas against fellow Syrians, which Obama subsequently disregarded. How did that turn out?

Sunday, September 23, 2018

By traditional metrics, Barack Obama’s presidency was mostly a failure. The economy, in a new first, never hit annualized growth of 3 percent. His signature domestic policy—Obamacare—caused chaos.

He had been about 16.5 pounds (which was, admittedly, too much) before he got sick, but in November it was down to about 15.5 pounds, but, more important, he was vomiting a lot.
