The Truth About the Trump Economy 16.10.2018 American Prospect
AP Photo/Andrew Harnik President Donald Trump speaks at a rally at Alumni Coliseum in Richmond, Kentucky. I keep hearing that although Trump is a scoundrel or worse, at least he’s presiding over a great economy.  As White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow recently put it, “The single biggest story this year is an economic boom that is durable and lasting.” Really? Look closely at the living standards of most Americans, and you get a very different picture.  Yes, the stock market has boomed since Trump became president. But it’s looking increasingly wobbly as Trump’s trade wars take a toll.  Over 80 percent of the stock market is owned by the richest 10 percent of Americans anyway, so most Americans never got much out of Trump’s market boom to begin with.   The trade wars are about to take a toll on ordinary workers. Trump’s steel tariffs have cost Ford $1 billion so far, for example, forcing the automaker to plan mass layoffs.   What about economic growth? Data from the Commerce Department shows the ...

Marco Rubio Delivers Word Salad About Climate Change 14.10.2018 Crooks Liars
Marco Rubio gave a word salad interview on CNN on Sunday morning regarding climate change. On one hand, he acknowledges that it is real, but he doesn't think studies can show how much mankind contributes (not true) and he doesn't think that making drastic changes is a good idea because it would hurt our economy too much. So strong economy is better than, you know, still having a viable planet for our grandchildren and great grandchildren to live on in 100 years? TAPPER: Speaking of experts, we can't specifically say that Hurricane Michael was so strong and devastating because of climate change, but there is scientific consensus that warmer waters are making storms such as Michael more devastating. U.N. outlined a dire global forecast, that Florida could lose more than 1 million homes by the end of the century due to rising sea levels because of climate change, which they say is man made. What do you say to constituents who ask why are you not one of the leaders in congress on this issue? RUBIO: I would ...

Larry Kudlow Colors New U.N. Report On Climate Change As A 'Scare Tactic' 14.10.2018 Crooks Liars
Donald Trump's economic advisor bashed the United Nations for over-hyping and overestimating the effects of climate change in their new report on ABC's THIS WEEK . Larry Kudlow claims he's not a climate change denier but threw in words like "scare tactic" while claiming he wasn't using words like "scare tactic" to describe how he feels about the flashing red light that is the new United Nations report. The NY Times writes : The report , issued on Monday by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a group of scientists convened by the United Nations to guide world leaders, describes a world of worsening food shortages and wildfires, and a mass die-off of coral reefs as soon as 2040 — a period well within the lifetime of much of the global population. But in Kudlow's mind, we should all take a pause and keep researching the issue because it's difficult. (Transcript via ABC News ...
