EconoMonitor : Great Leap Forward » Paul Krugman Still Gets it Wrong: Modern Money Theory

(http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/08/15/mmt-again/) And, again, he gets it wrong. He continues to make two kinds of errors: errors of attribution, and errors in his understanding of money and finance. I don’t normally like to include long quotes followed by critiques, but I think in this case it will be useful. Sorry, this is going to be a bit long and wonkish. Before proceeding, let me say that I appreciate the role that Krugman plays. Like many of you, I enjoy reading hi...

Trump Voters Stand by Their Man as He Wrecks Their Jobs

His supporters were so enamored with him, then-candidate Donald Trump claimed in January 2016, that “I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters.” Thankfully, the president isn’t shooting anyone in the street. But Trump’s theory about his supporters’ enduring love is being put the to test in a southern Missouri town where the White House’s trade policy is killing jobs. The Kansas City Star dispatched a reporter to Poplar Bluff, home to America’s largest manufacturer of nails, to find out how the steel tariffs were affecting Trump-supporting residents. Trump won 79 percent of the vote in Butler County, where Poplar Bluff is located. But the town of 17,000 could be decimated by the closure of the Mid Continent Nail Corporation, whose owners have warned that they may have to lay off hundreds of workers or even close their doors entirely as Trump’s tariffs increase the price of steel—a rather fundamental fixed cost when you’re in the business of making steel nails. “This company, I think, couldn’t be a better example of the kind of damage that’s being done to Ame...

Master Mechanic Begins Mission To Repair Wrecked Gallardo [UPDATE]

Performing extensive body repair on a vehicle after an accident isn’t easy. That’s especially true for a supercar jam-packed with aluminum components, among other more exotic materials. Furthermore, one also doesn’t simply step over to the local auto parts outlet for replacement gear, and when you can find new parts, they’re always expensive. So when we learned Russian auto repair guru Arthur Tussik was embarking on a mission to resurrect a thoroughly trashed Lamborghini Gallardo, we had to check it out. We’ve seen Tussik’s work many times before, but from what we see on his YouTube channel, this could well be his most ambitious project thus far. It’s so ambitious that the repair will span at least three videos, with this obviously being the first. The supercar was apparently tossed into a ditch at a high rate of speed, causing severe damage to most of the car but especially to the right rear. Fortunately, the Gallardo’s bones are aluminum as opposed to carbon fiber, which means Tussik can set up his frame equipment and get to work. Of course, just about every car enthusiast knows working with aluminum isn’t as easy as good old steel. To make matters worse, Tussik mentions in t...

Special report – Hobbling Huawei: Inside the U.S. war on China’s tech giant

CANBERRA (Reuters) – In early 2018, in a complex of low-rise buildings in the Australian capital, a team of government hackers was engaging in a destructive digital war game. The operatives – agents of the Australian Signals Directorate, the nation’s top-secret eavesdropping agency – had been given a challenge. With all the offensive cyber tools at their disposal, what harm could they inflict if they had access to equipment installed in the 5G network, the next-generation mobile communications technology, of a target nation? What the team found, say current and former government officials, was sobering for Australian security and political leaders: The offensive potential of 5G was so great that if Australia were on the receiving end of such attacks, the country could be seriously exposed. The understanding of how 5G could be exploited for spying and to sabotage critical infrastructure changed everything for the Australians, according to people familiar with the deliberations. Mike Burgess, the head of the signals directorate, recently explained why the security of fifth generation, or 5G, technology was so important: It will be integral to the communications at the heart...

Is titanium dioxide safe to eat? Fresh research raises concerns over E171 Menu Back to Back to Back to Back to Back to Back to Send Follow us on Facebook Follow us on Twitter Follow us on LinkedIn Send contact Email to a friend Facebook Twitter Linkedin Tip a friend

Titanium dioxide, colouring E171, is included on the list of permitted EU food additives and this week the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) again issued an opinion that the common ingredient is safe for human consumption. In 2016, EFSA said that available data on E171 in food showed absorption levels were “extremely low”​ and that its use as an additive “does not raise a genotoxic concern”.​ And while the UN’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified titanium dioxide as a possible human carcinogen, EFSA stated that it is not carcinogenic after oral administration. E171 is a colouring used in over 900 food products, from confectionery and baked goods to sauces such as mayonnaise. It is used to achieve a white, opaque or cloudy colour. The food safety body reaffirmed this opinion first in 2018 and then again last week, stating that no new evidence has come to light to prompt a change of course. Responding to a parliamentary question in February, Vytenis Andriukairis, European Commissioner for Health and Food Safety, stated: “The Commission considers that there are currently no grounds to apply precautionary measures regarding the authorisation of E171...

What we expect from Georgia during spring practice Podcasts CBS Sports Digital Facebook Twitter Instagram Podcast Sportradar

Georgia fans can take comfort in the fact that they are just over a week away from getting their football fix. Spring drills at UGA begin on March 19 and it’ll mark the beginning of a five-week stretch when football will be front and center. If the past is any indication, Kirby Smart will put his team through 12 traditional practices, two closed scrimmages, and it’ll all wrap up on April 20 with his fourth G-Day as the Bulldogs’ head coach. We’ll get a look at a large group of new Bulldogs, at least 11. UGA had 14 early enrollees back in January and 11 of them will be healthy enough to fully partake in spring practice. Three more, Rian Davis (inside linebacker), Ryland Goede (tight end), and Trezmen Marshall (inside linebacker) will probably be limited for all 15 practices due to injuries that occurred before they joined the team. There’s also a chance that other players will be too banged up to fully participate but there’ll be plenty to keep an eye on. Position battles will begin and continue into summer workouts and preseason camp, guys will take their shot at replacing productive players who are no longer around, and recruiting won’...

In your search for the best dog jackets for winter, the first thing you’ll need to

In your search for the best dog jackets for winter, the first thing you’ll need to keep in mind is the size of your dog. This may sound intuitive, but there’s nothing worse than ordering an accessory for your pup only to find out it doesn’t fit properly. Most jackets come with size requirements based on the back length and chest measurements of your dog, in addition to their weight. Depending on the climate, you’ll also want to consider what materials your pup needs. While dog jackets are constructed in many different designs, the warmest ones for cold weather will be made with a durable outer material like polyester to protect against the elements and stuffed with polyfill or lined with fleece for added warmth. In my search, I repeatedly came across one jacket highly-praised by dog professionals and owners: the Weatherbeeta Parka 1200D. Thanks to its waterproof exterior, warm interior fleece materials, and adjustable straps, this dog jacket is a steal at under $50. However, for those looking for a velcro-free, budget-friendly, or an especially luxe dog jacket, you may want to consider the other options on the list as well. Read on for a detailed look at...
