Wednesday, July 10, 2019

How fortuitous that the news of Ross Perot’s passing coincides with the launch of Tom Steyer’s presidential run. Perot, of course, was the Texas billionaire who shook up the 1992 election by running as an independent candidate (actually, he ran, dropped out, then dropped back into the race) – all the while amusing the media and infuriating a sitting Republican president and a Democratic governor who hoped to unseat him.

Wednesday, July 10, 2019

The Federal Reserve began raising the level of short-term interest rates at the end of 2015. The central bank’s latest Monetary Policy Report, published on Friday in advance of Chairman Jerome Powell’s semiannual testimony to Congress this week, suggests this may have been a mistake.

quoting John Yoovia The Atlantic

This instability will continue until one party finds a dominant set of issues that attracts a winning coalition of voters. Stabilizing the political landscape will require party coalitions to address critical issues like immigration, inequality, worker insecurity, environmental challenges, and trade in a way that brings together a stable majority of voters.
