Both Parties Lost the Election

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 03:00:00 PST

Occupy Washington May Be The Winner This is certainly not a time of Republican triumph at the presidential level. Trump’s trouncing of Republican establishment candidates (one of whom I supported) was much more overwhelming than his victory over a weak Democratic candidate with many self-inflicted wounds. At least up to the end, Hillary was probably more the candidate of the...

Inaugural Hopes, the Radio Show, Today

Fri, 20 Jan 2017 04:31:51 PST

Today, inauguration day, it turns out that I’m on a radio show here in Vermont which happens to be at 11am ET right before the inauguration with my friend host Bill Sayre. We’ll be talking about my hopes for the new administration, some of which are in yesterday's post. You’re welcome to call in with your hopes and fears or...

Things to Hope for in the New Administration

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 04:58:48 PST

Granted, there’s plenty to fear from the new administration, the temperament of the president-elect not the least. But I hope Trump will succeed; I also hoped Barack Obama would succeed. The resentments that led to Trump’s narrow victory stem from these legitimate grievances: 1) the wealthfare state with its bank bailouts, corporate subsidies, and lobbyist-designed tax code; 2) a failed...

The World Economic Forum at Davos

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 11:42:57 PST

The More Things Change... You may have noticed that this week many news stories are being filed from Davos, Switzerland. That is because the World Economic Forum (WEF) is being held there this year – as it has been almost every year at this time – and reporters important enough to be invited can write about almost nothing else. I...

Dodd-Frank and Me

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 03:00:00 PST

The Magically Receding Bank Loan Software companies usually don’t borrow money; I blogged long ago about the loan my old company couldn’t get to buy a switchboard. But in 2011 Mary and I started a new company, NG Advantage LLC, to truck compressed natural gas. Our idea was to bring the economic and environmental benefits of natural gas to companies...

Tweets Are DIY Headlines for Politicians

Sun, 15 Jan 2017 10:38:13 PST

Tweets notoriously have room for only 140 characters so how can they possibly be used to convey a serious position? Well, headlines only have about 60 characters. Sound bites are not much longer. Many of us absorb most of our non-Internet news in headlines and sound bites. The advantage of tweets from politicians’ PoV is that they get to write...

The Difference Between Venture Capital and Private Equity

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 15:39:43 PST

A Whole New Ballgame Once NG Advantage LLC, our compressed natural gas trucking business, started to grow, we needed a lot more capital. Moving into a new region requires at least a $5 million investment to build a station to compress gas from a pipeline into the trailers which deliver it to customers. Adding even one new customer can require...

Why Vaccinations Need to be Mandatory

Tue, 10 Jan 2017 17:15:17 PST

There are multiple news reports (see here and here, for example) that Robert Kennedy Jr. says that Donald Trump appointed him to head a presidential panel to review vaccine safety and science. As of this moment, there’s no direct confirmation from the Trump team and no explanation of how the findings of this commission are supposed to be used. I’m...

Trump and Clinton Call Sanders’ Election “Illegitimate”

Tue, 10 Jan 2017 02:00:00 PST

Former Candidates say They Got Berned by Putin and WikiLeaks President Elect Bernie Sanders today addressed criticism that his surprise Presidency will be “illegitimate” because it was due to leaks of email stolen from the Democratic National Committee. National security officials say the emails were obtained by Russian hackers acting under instructions from Vladimir Putin. “This is the bitterness of...

Alexa – Cover Your Ears

Mon, 09 Jan 2017 03:00:00 PST

On the left is an Echo, a wonderful appliance from Amazon whose name is Alexa. She is a wonderful listener - perhaps too good. Yesterday I read two stories which suggest you may want to cover Alexa’s long ears if she is a listener in your house. First the primmer: When the Echo is on, by default she is listening....
