Quote Of The Day

Mon, 23 Oct 2017 00:29:05 +0000

“Maxwell invokes dire statistics: “Is 1 in 5 American women surviving rape or attempted rape a cultural norm?” That 1-in-5 figure is based on Centers for Disease Control surveys in 2010 and 2011 loaded with leading questions so shoddily worded that they elided the distinction between rape and consensual drunk sex. Indeed, in response to […]

Quote Of The Day

“… the distribution of those costs and benefits seems to be uneven. Affluent households probably don’t even know what their bank’s minimum balance for fee-free checking is, because their savings never dip anywhere near it. For low-income households, on the other hand, even small fees, or modest minimum balances, can represent a financial headache. Similarly, […]

“Coates’s melodramatic rhetoric comes right out of the academy, the inexhaustible source of Democratic identity politics. The Democratic Party is now merely an extension of left-wing campus culture; few institutions exist wherein the skew toward Democratic allegiance is more pronounced. The claims of life-destroying trauma that have convulsed academia since the election are simply a […]

“And limit access they will. According to the CFPB, the proposed guidelines, by raising the lender’s cost, would shrink the dollar volume of the loans by more than half. What then happens to the money that would otherwise have been loaned to high-risk borrowers? The answer may well be that it winds up in the […]

Quote Of The Day

Let’s look at Oakland, Calif., where the minimum wage is $12.55. When Wal-Mart opened there in 2005, about 11,000 people applied for the 400 positions. Those jobs will soon be gone, as the Oakland store is on the closure list. While Wal-Mart declined to address the details of its decision, City Councilman Larry Reid told […]

Success Academy Charter Schools

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 02:01:42 +0000

An interesting profile of Success Academy Charter Schools in New York: If you’ve heard of charter school founder Eva Moskowitz, odds are it’s because of her pitched, front-page battles with teachers’ unions and their powerful ally, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio. But whatever your politics, it’s hard to deny her results. In New York, […]

Open Letter To Bernie Sanders

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 00:40:02 +0000

A great post by my second favorite economist: You want to raise the minimum wage and prevent what you allege to be “corporately backed” freer trade. Your positions are inconsistent with each other. Presumably you believe that higher minimum wages (contrary to the prediction of basic economic reasoning) cause no, or only vanishingly few, low-skilled […]

“Unlike most other big cities in America, Houston has no zoning code, so it is quick to respond to demand for housing and office space. Last year authorities in the Houston metropolitan area, with a population of 6.2m, issued permits to build 64,000 homes. The entire state of California, with a population of 39m, issued […]

The GM Recall Record

Sun, 22 Jun 2014 00:17:00 +0000

It’s staggering: For those who are just tuning into the GM recall saga, some quick facts. GM has issued 44 recalls in North America this year alone. More than 20 million vehicles have been affected worldwide—a tremendous figure that surpasses total annual vehicle sales in the U.S. The recall pace has snowballed since the start […]

Global Warming Slows As Carbon Dioxide Rose

Mon, 09 Jun 2014 21:26:13 +0000

The Economist writes: BETWEEN 1998 and 2013, the Earth’s surface temperature rose at a rate of 0.04°C a decade, far slower than the 0.18°C increase in the 1990s. Meanwhile, emissions of carbon dioxide (which would be expected to push temperatures up) rose uninterruptedly. Then proceeds to offer a bunch of after the fact explanations but […]
