The RBA as firm and policymaker "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Here is the Financial Times:

Australia has created 1m jobs over five years and its economy is growing at a healthy 3.1 per cent a year, but for workers the lucky country has lost some of its shine. Wages growth is stuck near record lows and household debt is among the highest in the developed world.

Average wages grew 2.1 per cent in the year to the end of March, below the 3.5 to 4 per cent levels that Australians enjoyed during a decade-long commodities boom that ended in 2013.

This is causing concern at the Reserve Bank of Australia, which has warned that weak household income growth and high debt posed a risk to the economy. The crisis is really in wage growth, Philip Lowe, the RBA governor, cautioned last year as he implored workers to demand higher wages to stimulate the economy.

A few comments:

1. Australia has now gone 27 years without a recession, despite wild swings in the markets for its key commodity exports (iron, coal, food, etc.)  So much for the theory that good monetary policy cannot smooth out the business cycle.  So much for the theory that housing bubbles cause economic instability.  So much for the theory that decade after decade of massive current account deficits are a problem. The naysayers have been telling me you just wait since I began blogging in early 2009.  Im still waiting, and the Australian expansion keeps rolling along.

2.  The RBA is confused.  It is concerned about slow nominal wage growth, but it is the RBA itself that determines Aussie nominal wage growth.  If it wants wages to grow faster, then it should raise the Australian NGDP growth rate.

The consequences of low wage growth are not restricted to workers. Mr Lowe, RBA governor, has warned of a cascade effect whereby it contributes to weak inflation, which keeps interest rates at record low levels a trend that pushes up asset valuations and social inequality.

Weak wage growth also damps spending by households and restricts income tax collection by the government, which is betting on a rapid recovery of wages growth to 3.25 per cent by 2019-20 to meet its pledge to return the budget to surplus.

Nope, low wage growth, low inflation, low interest rates and slow spending are all caused by slow NGDP growth, aka tight money.

It also poses a risk to industrial peace. Last month, Australia stopped printing money for the first time in 107 years due to a strike at Note Printing Australia, a wholly owned subsidiary of the RBA. Workers are demanding a pay rise of at least 3.5 per cent and have rej...

Cults are the norm "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Trump is not a particularly interesting person.  The Trump cult, however, is very interesting.  Ive been following American politics pretty closely since 1968, and Ive never seen anything remotely like this.  (Although obviously this sort of political cult is common in other countries.)

What differentiates a cult from a normal religion?  Its not really about the theology.  Cult beliefs may seem bizarre, but even ordinary religions hold beliefs that seem strange to an outsider.  Rather its about the behavior of the cult members, the blind adherence to the cult leader, the willingness to do or say or believe anything they are told.  Nothing less than 100% devotion is acceptable.

A congresswoman from Alabama named Martha Roby has been a strong supporter of Trumps policies since he was elected in 2016.  And yet she faces a stiff primary challenge from a Trumpista candidate (and will face a runoff election).  Her sin was strongly criticizing Trumps grab them by the pussy remark during the 2016 campaign.  In the Trump cult, there is simply no place for a conservative pro-life Christian woman who doesnt believe that rich and powerful alpha males should be allowed sexually harass women.

In South Carolina, Mark Sanfords sins were far worse.  He actually stood up for traditional GOP small government ideas, and was soundly rejected in a recent primary.  He seems confused by whats happening:

Were at an interesting inflection point in American politics, he said in an interview. If somehow dissent from your own party becomes viewed as a bad thing, then were not really vetting and challenging ideas in the way the founding fathers intended.

Broadening his argument, Mr. Sanford said America was meant to be a nation of laws, not men and that we werent a cult of personality.

Yes, we werent.  And this:

The stalled efforts to rein in a protectionist president have led to cries of frustration from Republican free traders bemused by what they see as a growing fealty in the party to Mr Trump at the cost of longstanding party ideals.  We are in a strange place...Its becoming a cultish thing, isnt it? Bob Corker, the Tennessee Republican behind the effort to impose congressional oversight on Mr Trumps national security tariffs, told reporters after his measure failed.

Theres that word again....

(How and Why) Authoritarianism is Like an Abusive Relationship "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

The Baffling, Toxic, Abusive Codependent Relationship We Dont Understand Yet

Over the past year or so, a fact has become increasingly clear. Authoritarian leaders share the classic characteristics of abusers. Authoritarians are abusers. Only they arent abusing a spouse, partner, or familybut a whole society. And that means that society is just like a person trapped in an abusive relationship

I want to begin by illustrating that authoritarians are abuser, and then well discuss the dynamics of this strange, perverse, and unexplored relationshipbecause while we have many books on abusive personal relationships, the idea of abusive social relationships is more or less completely unexplored. So here are a few clear overlaps, by way of abusive tactics authoritarians regularly employ (and Ill paraphrase, for conveniences sake).

Gaslightingthe Democrats built the camps, not us!!

Isolating victims from friends and alliesI alone can save you! The Canadians betrayed us!

ProjectionThe press is the enemy of the people! theyre losers! Just absolute losers! (Translation: being a loser is one of my deepest fears, Im afraid I might be an enemy.)

The victim cardIve never been so hurt! Theyre out to get me!

Withholding and blackmailingIll tear the down the camps if you let me build the wall.

Verbal assaultsLittle Marco, Lyin Hillary, etcetera

Public humiliation, making an example, loyalty testssuddenly firing the most loyal stooges

Shifting sandsWell retaliate against the EU, five minutes later, Lets have a free trade zone!

Do you see how obvious and clear the resonance is? Now lets discuss this strange, pathological thing happening before our eyesthe authoritarian as the abuser of a whole society, who, somehow, has come to have a toxic, codependent relationship with him.

How does an abuser become one? There are many pathways, and here Ill discuss the one I think is the major one. Many, if not most, abusers are narcissists. Sometimes malignant, sometimes seductive and Machiavellian, sometimes grandioseoften, all three.

To really understand a narcissist, you must understand their childhood. Their parents do not soothe or hold or tell them they are loved enough. In other words, they often have stern, cold, distant authoritarian parents (who often themselves feel envious of their own childrens freedom and curiousity and capacity for joy). Ah, see the resonance again? So in such a childs mind, where there should be an introject,...

How Patriarchy and Supremacy Cost America the Future "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

You Can Have Modernity or BarbarityBut Not Both

Heres a strange and funny observation.

There is the very famous psychology professor who shouts that college students protesting neo Nazis are deep, dangerous threats to free speechbut has yet to condemn internment camps for children. There is the other very famous psychology professor whose goal in life is to persuade you and I that the world is getting betterwhile America implodes into the panicked chaos of authoritarianism (I guess America isnt part of the world). Over there, the renowned columnist who argued women should be sexually enslaved, so that men dont shoot people (I guess he didnt learn two wrongs dont make a right in kindergartenbut well return to him).

Shall I go on? Indulge me for a moment.

There are legions of economists who cheerthe economys doing great!! because profits are higher, while life expectancy plummets and suicide rates skyrocket. And then, at last, there are the throngs of very famous and admired columnists and pundits who condemn Trump a little more hysterically every daybut supported him when it counted and used Hillarys emails as a weapon to shred democracy.

Friends, Im here to tell you something youd rather not hear. Patriarchy and supremacy made America dumb. Wait, not just dumb. Mean, cruel, and poor, too. All the above, if you pause and think about it, are just reflections of a culture, society, way of thinking, still steeped up to its eyeballs in patrarichy and supremacy. Only the rest of the rich world isnt. How so?

American discourse consists (more or less) of the ideas of supremacy and patriarchyjust softly encoded into shining myths of exceptionalism, where its a little better hidden. One endless reiteration of a set of tired fairy talesand if you know them, youll quickly see that every newspaper column you read, every TV show you watch, every politicians speech, is an endless retelling of them. Here they are (if you havent figured them out by now): Everyone must be self-reliant. Only the strong survive, so weakness must be punished. The purpose of life is profit, ownership, and control. Be as cruel and exploitative and ruthless, especially to those beneath them, as possible. The only right way to organize a society is as a junglea food chain, to feed the apex predators.

Wouldnt you say that accurately describes most of the beliefs underpinning American life, from healthcare to education to aspiration to work to play? Why else do we aspire to be ninjas and killers working a hundred hours a week for less money every week, accomplices to our own ruinwhile the rest of the rich world, which lives longer, better, happier lives, gently sip...

What we can and cannot afford "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Can we afford health care for all, free education for all, housing for the homeless, food for the hungry, a decent and efficient national system of transportation, a clean and healthy environment, a fair and equitable distribution of our collective production, and a true democracy in which people decide their own fate and how their money is to be spent? Politicians of all stripes tell us we cannot. Where will the money come from? is their plaint whenever such measures are proposed.

But other countries have many of those things. There is a vast number of countries that have free or almost free universal health care, as can be seen in this list. And here is a list of 11 countries that have BOTH free universal health care AND free college. The list includes not only affluent countries like Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland, but relatively poor countries such as Greece, Argentina and Brazil.

Anyone who has traveled in western Europe knows that Amtrak is a bad joke compared HSRinChina to the extensive and efficient rail systems in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and elsewhere. China too has much better trains than the U.S. and has been rapidly expanding its transport infrastructure. According to Wikipedia, China already has the worlds longest high speed rail network which is also the most extensively used, with 1.713 billion trips delivered in 2017 brin...

May Retail Sales-The Warning Signs Beneath "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Aggregate income estimates suggest a collision where income growth has stalled in the wake of the 2015-16 downturn but spending hasnt been dampened by nearly as much. The result has been the several years now of languishing auto sales (and production) as well as the parallel decline in the Personal Savings Rate. In other words, where gasoline prices might trigger a negative reaction in further spending could be at a lower point. Consumers just dont have that much room or discretion.

China fires back at Trump tariffs "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

File photo of US President Donald Trump with Chinese President Xi Jinping. It is unclear how the tariffs will affect their warm relationship

China on Saturday continued its second day of harsh criticism of the Trump administration for imposing tariffs set to go into effect on July 6.

A Chinese state newspaper said the US President had an obsession with playing the disgraceful role of global economic disruptor.

The wise man builds bridges, the fool builds walls, it said.

The Chinese government said it was disappointed in US President Donald Trumps decision to slap a 25 per cent tariff on some $50 billion Chinese goods, but said it was going to continue multilateral, anti-protectionist trade policies.

The Chinese appear to have been taken back by Trumps decision on Friday, especially since the two sides have been in extensive sides to avert a trade war of tit-for-tat tariffs and penalties.

Saying that the Americans are flip-flopping in the issue, the Ministry of Commerce in Beijing said: This move not only hurts bilateral interests, but also undermines world trade order. The Chinese side firmly opposes that.

China has for months said it did not want a trade war but would retaliate against the US.

Other countries have made similar pledges.

The US tariffs affect some 1,000 Chinese products and are split in two stages applied on $34 billion in products to go into effect on July 6, followed by tariffs on $16 billion to be applied later.

Trump accused China of unfair trade practices which have helped push a trade deficit to nearly $400 billion.

He also accused China of many years of siphoning US technologies as well as intellectual property theft.

China retaliated, saying it will impose an additional 25% tariff on more than 600 US products worth $50 billion but also in two stages beginning July 6.

Meanwhile, International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde also took a shot at Trumps protectionist policies saying his tariffs approach risked dragging down the world economy as well as Americas.

As I have said before, in a so-called trade war, driven by reciprocal increases of import tariffs, nobody wins, she said. Let us not understate the macroeconomic impact.

The Corrosion of the American Soul "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Its a Crime for Kids in Camps to Hug Each Other. What Does That Say About Us?

I read something tonight that made me shiver.

The kids Americas putting in campssome of whom are babiesalready separated from their parentsarent allowed hugs. Not even from their siblings, whom they can only see once a week. They arent allowed to be soothed, hugged, or touched by anyone, in fact.

Can you imagine what its like to be a little child, desperate for your mother and father, who have disappeare, then your siblings are taken awayand nobody can hug you? Go ahead and try.

Every nation has something like a soul, because a nation is made of people. The American soul has always been a strange thing. Made of intense light, but also of the purest darkness, too.

And yet, I suppose, over the last few decades, we might have supposed that we had learned something, from the tragic and foolish history of being American. From all the mistakes that we have made as a people, from the trauma and hurt of them passing down through the generations, like an inheritance of thunder. Something about our souls.

Thats what we all thought, isnt it? Were better than this, it cant happen here, etcetera. Were not those people anymore. But we arewhat kind of people ban kids from hugging each other in camps? And therefore: we havent learned anything at all, yet. Maybe we never will. Can we? How? What does all that make us, the strange and ignorant and broken people who cannot seem to learn a thing, except how to shoot a bigger gun?

I want to tell you about the idea of a crime against humanity. Indulge me for a moment. I know you think, on some level, youre above it. Yet I dont say it to blame or shame you, but only so we understand ourselves. It isnt what you think. It is one of humanitys greatest accomplishmentsand a great reason we are a foolish and broken nation is that we are not taught these things in our schools. The idea was not just that acts like putting people in concentration camps took away their humanitybut that doing so proved the lack of humanity of the society imprisoning them, too. Thus, the soul of humanity was corroded by such crimes.

And that soul, that core, is our most fundamental common possession, resource, birthright, or endowment. And in that way, such crimes were the greatest of all, toobecause without our common humanity, we have no way left to judge right and wrong, true and false, and everything soon turns upside down. Good becomes bad, and bad becomes good. Thats what a soul is for, after all, isnt it?

Now. Let me come back to us. What this act of...

May Industrial ProductionNot Much But Oil "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

In other words, if globally synchronized growth was a real thing, and its effects on the US economy were likewise more than rhetorical, then why hasnt US income accelerated? Why havent Americans shaken off the effects of 2015-16 and started buying more cars again (especially cars, though sales of light trucks are no longer growing, either)? To be stuck in this position with, outside of weather events, a downside bias in sales and production for such a long stretch (closing in on three years) illustrates the opposite concepts from a boom.

Has the wage-education locus for women been worsening? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

That question is the focus of some recent research by Chen Huang.

Womens labor force participation rate has moved from 61% in 2000, to 57% today.  It seems two-thirds of this change has been due to demographics, namely the aging of the adult female population.  What about the rest?  It seems that, relative to education levels, wages for women have not been rising since 2000:

I discover that the apparent increase in womens real wages is more than accounted for by the large increase in womens educational attainment. Once I condition on education, U.S. womens real wages have not increased since 2000 and may even have decreased by a few percentage points. Thus, the locus of wage/education opportunities faced by U.S. women has not improved since 2000 and may have worsened. Viewed in that light, the LFPR decrease for women under age 55 becomes less surprising.

You can consider that another indicator of the Great Stagnation.

Asian-American admissions at Harvard "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Here is basic NYT coverage of the case:

University officials did concede that its 2013 internal review found that if Harvard considered only academic achievement, the Asian-American share of the class would rise to 43 percent from the actual 19 percent.

Here is the plaintiffs brief by Peter S. Arcidiacono.  Here is David Cards brief in defense of Harvard and Asian-American admissions.  Here is Arcidiaconos response to Card.

Gabriel Rossman noted on Twitter: Once you control for lacrosse, founding an NGO in high school, legacy status, alumni evaluation of personality, woke personal essays, and a 23&me test for EDAR, theres no effect

My take is simple.  Harvard is risk-averse with respect to the stream of future donations, as are many other schools.  Asian-American admissions dont have the same donating track record as the white students traditionally cultivated by Harvard and other top universities.  Either Asian-Americans may seek out diaspora philanthropy, or they simply may have a more cynical attitude toward top institutions that they basically have never had any control over.

Furthermore, there is a common fear repugnant to me I should add that if a student body becomes too Asian, many white students will be less interested in going there.  I taught at UC Irvine for several years and found it to be a delightful experience, but this is exactly what many schools are afraid of (the UCI student body is disproportionately Asian, and the honors class I taught in my first year had only one non-Asian student in it).

And so they come up with every excuse possible sometimes cemented in by self-deception for maintaining a balanced student body.

It is incorrect to call it racism, but it is non-meritocratic and we should move away from those attitudes as quickly as possible....

A Hard Rain's a-Gonna Fall "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

A Hard Rain's a-Gonna Fall

As the Federal Reserve kicked off its second round of quantitative easing in aftermath of the Great Financial Crisis, hedge fund manager David Tepper predicted that nearly all assets would rise tremendously in response. 

History proved Tepper right: financial and other risk assets have shot the moon. Equities have long since rocketed past their pre-crisis highs, bonds continued rising as interest rates stayed at historic lows, and many real estate markets are now back in bubble territory. 

And everyone learned to love the 'Fed put' and stop worrying.

But as King Louis XV and Bob Dylan both warned us, what's coming next will change everything.

How America Failed to Understand its Own Collapse "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

What if the Next Two Years are Worse Than the Last Two Years?

Heres a little question. Does America have two years left?

Nope. Im not trying to provoke, insult, goad, or taunt you. Id rather be making disco than writing about American collapse. Yet deep down, Id bet that youve asked yourself the same questionmore than once, maybe more than once a day, these daysand then told yourself youre crazy for asking.

Youre not crazy. In fact, youd be crazy if you werent asking yourself this question at this juncture in history. Your intuition is exactly rightits the youve been told to think about what will happen and wont thats wrong.(And of course I dont mean two years left as in the Rapture. America will still be a place. I mean it as in: will America still be a nominally functioning democracy, a modern society, a member of the league of civilized nationsor will it be something like a collapsed, globally reviled pariah state?)

Lets start three years ago. Back then, many of uspeople whove studied authoritarian collapses, lived through them, or bothbegan warning, pretty strenuously, ofeverything thats happening now, coming faster, harder, and worse than everyone who hadnt studied or lived through it expected. We werent taken very seriouslywe were dismissed as alarmists and provocateurs, despite many of us being respected authors and thinkers and intellectuals and so on. Why werent we taken seriously? How is it that mainstream thought is shocked and baffled every single day by what goes onbut hasnt learned why it continues to be, why it is unable to predict what will happen next?

Because the logicor illogicof American thought, which was based on decades of badly mistaken theories of politics, economics, psychology, and sociology, went like this. Hell never get elected! Even if he does, what can he do! Hes a joke! Forget it! Our institutions are way stronger than a goon like that! Were the greatest society in history, are you kidding? Youre being hyperbolic! Youre so dumb! Youre overstating it!and so on. In other words, the idea itself that all of this could happen was dismissed from the beginningit was ruled out of the set of possibilities, without a moments thought, consideration, or reflection. It cant happen here. And that was a fatal mistake.

Because what we were trying to warn of (or at least I was) wasnt just about a single personbut a set of social trends, historical tides, that were setting off a classical sequence of collapse, seen many times before. Economic stagnation. A middle class imploding. Skyrocketing inequality. A society without safety nets, public goods. People living at the edge, feeling insecure, unsafe, threa...

Whats really wrong with Wikileaks? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

From Theodore Dalrymple in 2010, also known as Prophets of the City Journal:

The actual effect of WikiLeaks is likely to be profound and precisely the opposite of what it supposedly sets out to achieve. Far from making for a more open world, it could make for a much more closed one. Secrecy, or rather the possibility of secrecy, is not the enemy but the precondition of frankness. WikiLeaks will sow distrust and fear, indeed paranoia; people will be increasingly unwilling to express themselves openly in case what they say is taken down by their interlocutor and used in evidence against them, not necessarily by the interlocutor himself. This could happen not in the official sphere alone, but also in the private sphere, which it works to destroy. An Iron Curtain could descend, not just on Eastern Europe, but over the whole world. A reign of assumed virtue would be imposed, in which people would say only what they do not think and think only what they do not say.

The dissolution of the distinction between the private and public spheres was one of the great aims of totalitarianism. Opening and reading other peoples e-mails is not different in principle from opening and reading other peoples letters. In effect, WikiLeaks has assumed the role of censor to the world, a role that requires an astonishing moral grandiosity and arrogance to have assumed. Even if some evils are exposed by it, or some necessary truths aired, the end does not justify the means.

For the pointer I thank Robert Dietrich.

Top of the charts: lessons from marshmallows, fertility and Babylon "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Sign up for our weekly Top of the Charts emails here

 

Afternoon all,

Its time for excessive flag waving, daytime drinking and back-of-a-fag-packet maths. And thats just the Brexit discussion at the upcoming June EU Council On the World Cup front enjoy the only month when we can all pretend that the most pressing concern around Russia isnt which election theyll try to rig next, but whether its transport infrastructure can handle a football tournament.

For when the inevitable happens and you realise that most of the games youre watching are truly dire, this weekends reading should come in handy

Have a great weekend,

Marshmallow smarshmallow. Once upon a time (1990) a famous social science experiment found that a childs performance in the marshmallow test (ie how long they can delay gratification before snaffling a sweet) was a strong indicator that they would achieve academically AND behave well as teenagers. This isnt just a story about marshmallows its been central to some policy wonks arguments that how well we do, and even whether we are in poverty, is driven by our individual self-control. But as part of the (welcome) fad for replicating famous papers a new piece of work has re-run the experiment. It still finds a link between marshmallow waiting time and academic achievement, but once family background and ability are controlled for, two-thirds of the effect disappears. And the most important news is that it was only waiting around 20 seconds that made the difference. The conclusion? You havent got to have that much self-control to achieve and poverty might be about more than marshmallows

Culture. It matters. Its the 21st Century. But in the US women are actually working less than they were back in 2000, compared to a 4.5 percentage point rise in the percentage of working-age women employed here in the UK. Lots of us have focused on the disaster that is maternity rights and childcare policy across the Atlantic as a cause of this worrying trend. But a new blog by Matt Bruenig points to another factor almost half of the change is explained by the big increase in Latina groups...

Central Banks Are Living DangerouslyThey Never Learn "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

All central banks are proceeding on the assumption there is no credit crisis on the horizon. This hubris was vividly demonstrated by Janet Yellen who a year ago told us she did not believe there would be another financial crisis in her lifetime, thanks largely to reforms of the banking system since the 2007-09 crash. That crash was a surprise to central bankers then, as was every crash before. Even Benjamin Strong in the late-1920s believed his new Federal Reserve System had tamed the business cycles of the previous century, though he died before being disproved by the 1929 Crash.

Strongs hubris then was the same Yellens hubris last year. Central banks have learned nothing about the credit cycle in nearly a century. If they had, they would be promoting sound money and a hands-off policy, while ensuring commercial banks restrict their credit expansion. They would let malinvestments wash out of the system, not build up for one huge crisis. They are not even aware, it seems, that they are living dangerously as they raise interest rates into and beyond the zone that will trigger the next credit crisis.

Which system should be redesigned from scratch? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Here is another question I didnt get to answer from last night:

Your blog talks about making small marginal improvements, but if you could redesign one system entirely from scratch, which one would it be, and how would it look compared to what is currently in place?

One answer would be blogging, I would have much more of it.  But my main answer would be higher education, especially those tiers below the top elite universities.  Completion rates are astonishingly low, and also not very transparent (maybe about 40 percent?).  I would ensure that every single student receives a reasonable amount of one-on-one tutoring and/or mentoring in his or her first two years.  In return, along budgetary lines, I would sacrifice whatever else needs to go, in order to assure that end.  If were all standing around in robes, arguing philosophy under the proverbial painted porch, so be it.  At the same time, I would boost science funding at the top end.

I also would experiment with abolishing the idea of degree completion altogether.  Maybe you simply finish with an assessment, or rather you never quite finish at all, since you might return to take a class when you are 43.  Why cannot this space be more finely grained, especially in an age of information technology?

At lower ages, I would do everything possible to move away from having all of the children belong to the exact same age group.  The Boy Scouts are a better model here than the 7th grade.

The NBA is one institution that I feel is working really well at the moment. and I dont just say that because I root for Golden State.  Though that doesnt hurt any, either.

*Blockchain and the Law* "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

The authors are Primavera De Filipp and Aaron Wright, and the subtitle is The Rule of Code and it is published by Harvard University Press.  I am sent many books on crypto and blockchains, but this is the one I feel is useful to an educated readership.  Its not for specialists, but if you have a good general economics and also law background, as one would expect from MR readers, but dont get crypto, this is the book-length treatment for you.  It sees merit and potential in crypto, without buying into any particular claim just for the sake of hype.

It is striking that crypto learning and debate really has not occurred through books much at all, nor in the mainstream media.  It has been through white and yellow papers, various on-line fora, Medium essays, Twitter, Reddit threads, and a variety of other venues.  I believe this is a paradigmatic example of how knowledge spreads these days and it should be studied very seriously as such, because it is the most extreme case of the new methods I know.

(Why) Americans Are Too Busy Reacting to Authoritarianism to Act Against It "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Why Arent Americans Interested in Why Their Societys Collapsing?

Heres a tiny observation.

Americans have become reactionarieswhether they know it or not. They are always desperately, furiously reacting. Alarmed, shocked, baffled, outraged by the days latest, and usually terrible, events. A school shooting, camps being built, a President insulting Canada, elections being hacked, the list is endless. But to react is, at best, to play defense, and at worst, to be manipulated, something like a marionette on a string. Having become reactionaries, what Americans arent anymore is authors of their own destiny as a nation.

Heres how the cycle goes. The authoritarians say something, do something, terrible. They separate mothers and kids, put kids in camps, and so on. Americans respond with sudden disbelieving explosions of outrage, fury, despair, anxiety, dread, denial, bewilderment. But the common thread is that they react. The authoritarians laugh, mock, taunt. The very next day is the samebut worse. What else would it be, if a society is only ever always reacting? Yet doesnt that reactionary cycle define American life now?

Why is that? Why are Americans trapped in this spin cycle of reacting desperately, furiously, anxiously, a little too late, every single day, to the ills of authoritarianismwhich also means that they cant ever really act against it? After all, if all that Americans can do is react to authoritarianisms daily transgressions, each one a little more terrible and violent than the last, then authoritarianism will surely win, because it is constantly pushing the bar down into the abyss. So until and unless Americans can explain authoritarianism, instead of react to it, they will simply have no power over it. If you cannot explain a thing, if you do not understand what causes it, but are only ever responding to its effectswhat power do you really have? You are impotentjust as Americans find themselves today.

Hence, the desperate, futile spin cycle of reaction in America today tells us something interesting and I think a little important. Americans arent very interested in why their society is collapsingonly in the daily news of its collapse. Collapse porn is a great business, these days. Doesnt that strike you as odd? Funny? Strange? Maybe now you see my point. You are right to say that I am asking a kind of meta-question of meta-ethics, a question about a question, which makes it even more unlikely that Americans will be interested in it. But to me, it is one of the greatest questions of all.

Perhaps you think I am being unkind. Americans already know what caused their society to collapse, you sayauthoritarianism! You dummy! Why are you asking us such useless questions?! Ge...

Federal Reserve raises interest rates "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

https://www.bbc.com/news/business-44473148

The US Federal Reserve has voted to raise the target for its benchmark interest rate by 0.25%, citing solid economic expansion and job gains.

The widely-anticipated decision will lift the target for the central banks benchmark rate to 1.75%-2%, the highest level since 2008.

A majority of Fed officials also forecast two more rate rises this year, one more than previously predicted.

The rise is part of the US recovery following the global financial crisis.

It is the seventh time the bank has raised rates since 2015.

The tighter policy reflects expectations that US growth and inflation will prove stronger than officials anticipated in March, while the unemployment rate continues to fall.

Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Jay Powell said job gains are boosting income and confidence, while foreign expansion and tax cuts support additional growth.

The main takeaway is that the economy is doing well, he said.

That occurs in a monetary inflation featuring virulent asset inflation as its most obvious symptom. Hunger for yield or irrational exuberance means that sober rational cynicism which would help investors spot the engineers camouflage is abnormally weak.

Where do our best ideas come from? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

A correspondent writes to me:

Isnt it weird that the best ideas we have just. pop into your head? I have no idea how to trace them. They just show up.

@Tyler any research into this area?

Dean Keith Simonton springs readily to mind, noting he has a new book coming out this year on genius.  Here are some overview pieces on simultaneous discovery, and of course those tend to stress environmental factors.  Here are some approaches to the multiplicative model of creative achievement.  I am a fan of that one.  What else?

FDA found glyphosate in nearly all foods tested and hid the results "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Jonathan Landsman

In an alarming revelation, it has come to light that government scientists at U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have found the weed killer ingredient glyphosate in many popular processed foods. This information was in emails that were obtained through a freedom of information request. (what they did with that intelligence is SHOCKING!)

Glyphosate is perhaps best known as the main ingredient in the Roundup weed killer brandfrom the Monsanto company. And, the FDA has been testing foods for the presence of herbicides and pesticides including, this highly toxic substance glyphosate for two years but had not released results. (Gee, I wonder why)

Glyphosate has been used in weed killer for the past 40 years

The leaked information shows that the organization has had trouble finding foods that do NOT contain traces of this harmful chemical. Corn meal, crackers, cereals and many other processed foods all show traces of glyphosate.

The internal FDA email is dated January 2017 and is a portion of many communications within the organization to determine just how much glyphosate is in our nations food supply. It is the first time the FDA has attempted to ascertain the levels and potential risks of glyphosate contamination.

As you may know, glyphosate has been used for the past 40 years. Yet, the FDA just recently begun testing for it. (not a comforting thought if you think about their slow reaction time)

Demand for testing intensified in 2015 following the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classification of glyphosate as a probable human carcinogen.

FDA claims pesticide testing was on samples that were not official

Roundup and other pesticide brands are sprayed directly on to many crops such as corn, wheat, oats and soybeans. It is also used on fields before growing season on crops like spinach and almonds.

While the levels are low, some exceed accepted guidelines, including in corn, where over tolerance levels were detected. (The legal limit is 5.0 ppm, and 6.5 ppm was detected.) Of course, the FDA dismissed its findings, along with other information in the email, stating that the foods tested were not official samples.

The FDA says it will be releasing official findings in a report later in 2018 or early 2019. These types of reports are typically released around two to two and a half years after data has been collected.

In addition to glyphosate, the FDA has also been measuring for herbicide residues 2,4-...

San Francisco prioritizes parking for car sharing "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Carsharing provides many social, economic, and environmental benefits, such as reduced household costs, increased access to transportation for lower-income households, less traffic congestion, and lower levels of greenhouse gas emissions. However, existing urban transportation systems do not always offer "affirmative action" for shared mobility, especially in cities where competition for space is at a premium.
