Steve Mnuchin Is An Idiot But You Knew That 25.1.2018 Crooks Liars
Stephanie Ruhle is a veteran market and economics reporter and she couldn't believe it. A break with long-standing Treasury secretary protocol, @stevenmnuchin1 pumps the narrative that a weak USD is good for trade... I guess the advantages of being the universal reserve currency doesn’t matter anymore. Is this strategy or recklessness? #davos — Stephanie Ruhle (@SRuhle) January 24, 2018 And she was asked on Morning Joe as well to pull her hair out comment on the Treasury Secretary's blabbermouth unusual comment. MIKA BRZEZINSKI: Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin is already making headlines in Davos, telling reporters there that a weaker dollar is better for trade. Joe? JOE SCARBOROUGH: I am so confused. Stephanie Ruhle, let's bring you in. ...Even I know, you don't want your Treasury Secretary to say this, do you, at ...

The demolition of U.S. global power 18.7.2017 Le Monde Diplomatique

The superhighway to disaster is already being paved. From Donald Trump's first days in office, news of the damage to America's international stature has come hard and fast. As if guided by some malign design, the new president seemed to identify the key pillars that have supported U.S. global power for the past 70 years and set out to topple each of them in turn. By degrading NATO, alienating Asian allies, cancelling trade treaties, and slashing critical scientific research, the Trump White (...)

The 2020 Census is headed for a "train wreck" thanks to Trump's mismanagement 11.5.2017 Boing Boing
The once-a-decade census is the "largest civic action undertaken by the entire country," providing data that "affects every corner of America, determining where hundreds of billions of federal dollars flow annually, where businesses open new stores and which states gain—or lose—seats in the House of Representatives." Without a high-quality census, America has no way to make good plans -- and crucially, has no objective way of evaluating self-serving policies that benefit the donor class -- and it's under threat. Trump's cuts and chaos has left the census gravely behind schedule on the three-year ramp up to the counting of every person in the nation, and Trump's racist policies may scare millions of migrants and people of color away from participating in an exercise that gives their intimate personal relationship to the federal government. The cuts mean that this year will mark the first-ever Census that participants can complete online, and they also mean that the information security practices to ...

Iceland worries about tourist boom 9.2.2017 Le Monde Diplomatique

Iceland is surfing a tourist boom. From 440,000 tourists in 2008, numbers started surging in 2011, and reached 1.3 million in 2015, and 1.8 million in 2016. (The population is 330,000 in an area some 40% of that of the United Kingdom.) How did this happen? Iceland experienced the sharpest crash of all the OECD economies in 2008-9. It regained its pre-crash level of average income by late 2014; its 2016 GDP grew super-fast, at over 6%, and forecasts suggest annual growth of almost 5% between 2017 (...)

Washington • President-elect Donald Trump has vowed to name China a currency manipulator on his first day in the White House. There’s only one problem - it’s not true anymore. China, the world’s second-biggest economy behind the United States, hasn’t been pushing down its currency to benefit Chinese exporters in years. And even if it were, the law targeting manipulators requires the U.S. spend a year negotiating a solution before it can retaliate.
